    They really fucked up with releasing this one and it won't surprise me if it ends up getting put out straight to disc. I want to see it but with all these delays it has me wondering.. what's wrong with it?

    That's the thing: the test screening went great except the ending so they went and reshot that....and than edited it down to PG-13....It's a weird situation.

    Fuck, I'd forgotten it was edited down to PG-13. What a disaster.

    So disappointing! Just bring on the Unrated Blu and be done with it.

    It's a disgrace, they don't have a clue, all the delays and then cutting it down, fucking clueless.

    For fucks sake, just release the unrated version on digital and disc, and skip the theaters, or else we will never get to see it...

    So is this still coming to theatres in June? I would have thought they'd have dropped another trailer by now to remind people this still exists.
    Still, if it's going to be PG-13 for theatres I'd rather go with what Myron Breck said and just release it as R/Unrated on blu.

    Oh yeah I was meaning to bring up that new Leatherface movie too. What the hell is happening with that. There's been next to no promotional material released for it. I was hoping we would have gotten a trailer by now. Has it been shelved or something?

    Dunno probably a MPAA issue cause last I heard filming was finished that was over six months ago. Just a few still photos of stars and on set pics of the film was released

    There was always little info flowing in from the new Leatherface film though. I was worried about it being any good way back when it was announced, especially after they made it sound like Leatherface was going to look like some normal kid/teen. I kept thinking "maybe the trailer will change my mind and give me some interest in this" but here I am still waiting. It just doesn't feel right as this sort of 'lack of info/promotion' usually equels bad.

    I have a feeling it will be the PG 13 version as far as extras there is only a making of featurette. No alternate/deleted footage

    The latest direct to video trailer, says PG-13 at the end...


    After all these delays, I will still watch it, but I wish they just had released the R-rated version, a few years back, instead of wasting more money on a PG-13 cut.

    Ha ha, the window scene made me laugh. "The window will not stay closed!"

    The one good thing about this release: it's so delayed that it features Bella Thorne in her prime.

    I'm hoping the PG cut will just be for theatres if they're still going to use that one. My fingers are crossed that the online and physical versions will be unrated. What would have been the point in cutting it if it's not getting a wide run anyway?
