Lionsgate Home Entertainment has officially announced and detailed the Blu-ray and DVD releases of Rob Zombie’s latest film ’31’. The film is set to arrive home on December 20, 2016, yet fans may be notably disappointed as the previously promised Uncut edition (Zombie was forced to cut the film twice in order to appease the mpaa and acquire an R rating for theatrical release) seems to be absent from the release, the press release clearly listing the film as only being Rated R. You can read the full announcement for the release following the jump.

SANTA MONICA, CA (October 24, 2016) – From the macabre mind of Rob Zombie (House of 1000 Corpses, The Lords of Salem, The Devil’s Rejects), comes his newest nightmare, 31, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD December 20 from Lionsgate.
