Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2 (2011)

The director gave this quote to dreadcentral.com: "I think it's great the MPAA had a problem with almost every kill in the film", says Hall. "If they didn't, we wouldn't have done our jobs correctly. They have a job to do, and so do I ... and luckily Image has been super supportive and has committed to releasing the film UNRATED and on Blu-ray, which makes me happy. Just to clarify, there will be a rated R cut as well, but I think most outlets will prefer the hardcore unrated cut ... I know I do."
dreadcentral.com also stated that: There is only one group out there who knows how to cut deeper than anyone else, the MPAA. Recently Rob Hall's upcoming film ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 went before them, and guess what?!? They immediately slapped the movie with the dreaded NC-17 rating. Having already seen the movie, I can tell you as a fact there's no way this wasn't going to happen. LTR 2 is riddled with some of the most insane bits of violence and kills we've ever seen.
The visual appealings in this movie were apparently too much for the MPAA which is why the Uncut Version was rated NC-17. The studio decided to release an Unrated Version for the home cinema market. In addition to that, there's a censored R-Rated Version (for strong bloody violence, language and some nudity) for store chains and video stores. Contrary to the prequel, the R-Rated Version doesn't contain a lot of alternate footage. Most of the time, the critical footage has just been cut. Nevertheless, there's less than 1 min. difference between R-Rated and Unrated. Edit
