    Could be bad news if true ...
    from dvdtalk.com
    Lion's Gate Home Video has announced the DVD release for Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses. Set for release on August 12th House of 1000 Corpses will feature: Audio Commentary with Director Rob Zombie, Theatrical Trailers including the Rob Zombie's original trailer, Screen Tests, Still and FX gallery, Featurettes designed specifically for the DVD by Rob Zombie, a Score Track. We got a TON of emails when we reviewed this film in the theaters, more so than almost any film we've covered this year. Pre-Order House of 1000 Corpses Now.Please note, we spoke to Lions Gate about the rumor of an unrated release for House of 1000 Corpses they stated that the DVD would only have the 'R' Rated theatrical cut and that the Unrated edition of the film will NOT be released on DVD.


    And heres what Rob Zombie said about the Unrated version a few months back ...

    Zombie acknowledges his own film has had to be cut, at times rather drastically, to avoid the dreaded NC-17 rating, one that direly limits the reach of a horror movie's key youth demographic. "It's hard to say how much, precisely, has been cut out. About 15 or 20 minutes, I'd say. It'll be on the DVD. The torture scene, where a hand is cut off, that originally went on a lot longer. The MPAA was really hard on this film.
    "No one would release the film unless it had an R rating. An NC-17 is just too difficult to deal with. Most newspapers won't even run ads for an NC-17 movie. It's sort of ridiculous, because NC-17 was created to get over the stigma surrounding X-rated movies. Now it's just created a new stigma. It's as though in this country we can't create movies for adults. So you can't watch something in the cinemas that you're going to be able to watch at home eventually anyway? It's a bizarre system that's just hypocritical. What was the point of creating an adult rating if you can't use it?."

    Might be worth waiting to see which version Tartan have got for the UK. There's always the chance it's going to be the unrated version, although it won't even get a festival screening (sometime late August) over here until the R1 disc's been released.
    Definitely worth waiting to find out though.
