A new Christmas horror movie was originally going to be R-rated, but test screenings forced it down to PG-13 to suit a 'younger female audience'
Universal Pictures Blumhouse Productions ("Get Out," "Happy Death Day 2U") made the upcoming holiday horror movie "Black Christmas." The film's screenwriter April Wolfe went on Twitter to address critics of the movie's PG-13 rating. "We wrote it with an R in mind," Wolfe wrote. "When they did the test screenings, [it] was clear that this movie needed to be available to a younger female audience because the subject matter is timely. "Also I want to indoctrinate girls into horror," she said. "Doesn't make it any less vicious!" Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. After releasing box office hits like "Happy Death Day 2U" and "Ma," Blumhouse will return one last time in 2019 for the holiday horror movie "Black Christmas." The latest remake of the 1974 horror classic is directed by indie film favorite Sophia Takal ("Always Shine") and co-written by film critic April Wolfe. The MPAA has given the new "Black Christmas" a PG-13 rating, making it the first version of the horror property not to be R rated. Some horror fans are scoffing at a PG-13 "Black Christmas," but Wolfe took to social media to defend the more restricted rating.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: A podiatrist explains heel spurs, the medical condition Trump said earned him a medical deferment from VietnamSee Also:A major 'Star Wars' scene with Han Solo has been changed on Disney PlusDisney Plus features a warning on some of its older content with 'outdated cultural depictions'Amazon just released a $300 Alexa-compatible Christmas tree

High-tech fitness company Peloton will reportedly release a cheaper treadmill and a rowing machine in 2020 (PTON)
Peloton Peloton is working on releasing a series of new products for 2020: a new treadmill, a rowing machine, and apps for both Amazon Fire TV and Apple Watch, according to Bloomberg.  New equipment could cheer up Peloton users, who have complained about the company's decision to remove songs by artists like Taylor Swift and Rihanna amid a $300 million copyright infringement lawsuit. The company told Reuters that it was 'always working on ideas' but had no new products to announce.  Investors seemed to like the idea, with Peloton stock surging up nearly 9% immediately following the report. It closed up 5%. The news may herald a turnaround for the company, which has hit several bumps recently. Peloton had the third-worst mega-IPO debut in a decade, as shares fell 11%. Its shares fell another 7% after it released its earnings report for the first fiscal quarter in 2020.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The buzzy fitness equipment startup Peloton, known for its internet-connected exercise bikes and treadmills, may finally have some good news this year after its IPO didn't go quite to expectations. Peloton will reportedly release two new pieces of fitness equipment next year, according to Bloomberg, including a new cheaper treadmill, and a rowing machine. Peloton is also exploring options to link its smartphone software to Amazon's Fire TV and the Apple Watch, per the report. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Watch Google reveal the new Nest Mini, which is an updated Home MiniSee Also:The best dining tables10 tricks for remembering everything you readI never understood the hype around Patagonia — but this one sweater changed my mind and now I'm a member of the cult fan base
