Age Rating - Examples

Land of the dead was made in the year 2005 by director George A Romero. The story of ‘Land of the Dead’ deals with a zombie assault on Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, where a tyrant run government exists. The survivors in the film have fled to the city. The city is protected on three sides by a large river and on the other by an electric barricade.
‘Land of the dead’ is the first movie in the ‘living dead’ series to receive an MPAA rating for its theatrical release. Romero had said he would film two versions; an R rated cut for the theatres and first DVD, and an unrated cut for the second DVD release. Both DVDs were released in the United States on 18 October 2005. Rumors suggested that Romero shot alternate gore scenes for the theatrical release, but this is not entirely accurate. The more extreme instances of gore were obscured by foreground elements filmed on bluescreen, so that these overlayed elements could be easily removed in post production for the unrated DVD. Other ways used to obscure blood in order to get an R-rating were achieved by simply trimming the grislier shots by a few seconds, by digitally repainting blood so that it is more black than red, or by digitally painting the blood out altogether.
In Canada the film was rated 18A and 13+ in Quebec. In the UK the BBFC rated it a 15 in both theatrical and unrated versions. Although the unrated was sold as an 18 certificate due to its bonus features. In Germany both versions were rated 18. Due to this the unrated version was more widely available. The film was banned in Ukraine.
