Thank You! Thank you for signing the petition to get ANTICHRIST rated NC-17.
Because of people like you, here’s what we accomplished together:
We were able to keep ANTICHRIST from being rated R, which would have given it complete access to every theater across the country. That is a huge victory. This past summer the MPAA gave the movie BRUNO an R rating when it clearly deserved NC-17 for the pornographic images.
Fearing an NC-17 rating, the ANTICHRIST producers pulled the movie from being rated and have released it as “Unrated.” The good news about that is many, many theaters will not show “unrated” movies. It will have a similar result that the NC-17 rating would have had in that regard. BUT, in the theaters (mostly “art house” type) which do show this vile movie, anyone of any age can walk in and see it.
Fortunately, young children don’t traffic into art houses but there’s nothing stopping them.
Worse, however, it will be shown on cable systems. The cable system Showtime is showing the abhorrent pedophile, child rape movie HOUNDDOG, which we stopped at the theaters.
Finally, without the NC-17, the distributors have the power to show it at schools and to sell it to anyone. This is very serious because there are many loony teachers who may show it, and without the NC-17, parents will have little credibility to stop it. Of course, there will also be many curious teenagers who will rent it.
The ANTICHRIST petition is part of an ongoing campaign to get a standards based system in place with the MPAA. ANTICHRIST proves that the MPAA is not an effective regulatory group if any movie wants to opt out of being rated. Knowing there are good people like you standing with us, we will continue the fight.
We appreciate you and your effort to protect the eyes of children.
