Rated R. Under 17 Not Permitted Without A Parent.
When I was a child - you know, back in the 70s and early 80s - I would get chills every time I heard that unique voice of the late, great Don LaFontaine saying the words, 'Rated R. Under 17 not admitted without a parent,' during his narration of both horror and thriller film trailers on the radio. Hehe, even as I'm typing this post, I'm getting chills just thinking about it. His vocals uttering those words at the closing of those classic radio film trailers used to get to me because he always sounded so eerie. (Laughs) God bless his eternal soul. Don LaFontaine was the man and then some! And we miss him. Indeed, we do.
While I loved his narrations so, it's too bad that he's not here to make that same announcement for the forthcoming radio trailers for our Dual Mania as it, Dual Mania, received an R rating from the Motion Picture Association earlier this afternoon. (Smiles) Yep, this day has been a busy one.
See, I made Joe Strickland a bet here. See, Strickland bet me that we wouldn't get an R rating but an NC-17 rating. He didn't think we would get it. I won. One-hundred dollars. Heh, I got that negro's money, honey! And it's done.
So, as we move towards its theatrical release date, Dual Mania is now graced with an R rating from the MPA. Groovy, eh?
Stay tuned, folks!
