Rob Zombie's "3 from Hell" film receives R-rating for "sadistic violence," "graphic nudity" & more

David A. Smith/Getty ImagesRob Zombie's next film 3 from Hell has officially received an R-rating.

According to an Instagram post from the shock-rocker/director, the MPAA chose that rating due to "strong sadistic violence, language throughout, sexual content, graphic nudity and drug use." So it certainly sounds like a Rob Zombie movie.

An R-rating is good news for Zombie, especially after his last film, 31, was initially saddled with the NC-17 rating, which doesn't allow anyone under 17 to be admitted.  That leads many theaters to refrain from showing movies with that rating. 31 was eventually released as an R-rated cut.

3 from Hell continues the story from Zombie's 2003 film House of 1000 Corpses and its 2005 sequel, The Devil's Rejects. A release date has yet to be revealed.

As for his music career, Zombie will hit the road this summer on a co-headlining tour with Marilyn Manson.
