"High Tension" Gets Cut, Dubbed

If you follow the horror genre closely, you've no doubt heard of and/or seen previews for Lions Gate Films' High Tension. Perhaps you heard that the film would be arriving in American theatres with an NC-17 rating. Well, about that… Dread Central recently contacted Lions Gate when a rumor popped up about High Tension being cut down to an R for its American release. Turns out that the rumor was true. Not only will High Tension receive an R rating, but it will also now be dubbed in English, as opposed to being in French with English subtitles. Personally, I would have preferred subtitles, but whaddya gonna do?

Lions Gate Announces Theatrical Release Schedule

Lions Gate Films are pretty much single-handedly keeping the genre of horror… real horror alive. In fact, it's hard to find a horror film these days that isn't being released by Lions Gate. To further illustrate my point, here are recently announced release dates for four highly anticipated Lions Gate films:

Haute Tension - June 3rd, 2005
The Devil's Rejects - August 12th, 2005
Undead - Now listed as "coming soon," so who knows
Saw 2 - October 28th, 2005

Grooviness. I'm very excited about the first three films on that list. As for Saw 2, I still have yet to see the first one, so I'll save my anticipation for the sequel until I view the film that spawned it.
