Lionsgate films is releasing Deliver Us From Evil, a documentary about the child molestation scandals in the Catholic Church. The film, which rattled the MPAA ratings boards, was given a redband rating by the MPAA, thus limiting the number of commercial theatres that can show the film.
Because Lionsgate is not a MPAA signatory, it is allowed to release the film, but it is up to independent movie theatre owners as to whether they will screen the film.
Deliver Us From Evil focuses on a northern California priest, Father Oliver O'Grady, who admits on camera to being an active pedophile who was harbored by the church for more than 30 years. Lionsgate will release it on October 13.
