So when the Evil Dead Rise trailer landed in out in box our first thought was, ‘Oh no not another Jimmy Saville documentary!’ but it turns out that thankfully this is the latest film from the awesome horror franchise that Sam Raimi came to fame with all the way back in 1981. Spawning two sequels there was an impressive remake in 2013 directed by Fede Alvarez and we also had a TV series spin off too.
Written and directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground) EVIL DEAD RISE stars Lily Sullivan (I Met a Girl), Alyssa Sutherland (The Mist), Morgan Davies (Strom Boy, The End), Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence) and introducing Nell Fisher (Northspur).
This latest film moves the action out of the woods and into the city, EVIL DEAD RISE tells the twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Sutherland and Sullivan, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.
EVIL DEAD RISE is produced by Rob Tapert (Don’t Breathe) and executive produced by series creator and horror icon Sam Raimi and cult legend and “Ash” himself, Bruce Campbell, along with John Keville, Macdara Kelleher, Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Romel Adam and Victoria Palmieri. Cronin is joined behind the camera by Director of Photography Dave Garbett , Production Designer Nick Bassett (Guns Akimbo, Sweet Tooth), Editor Bryan Shaw and Costume Designer Sarah Voon with a score by Stephen McKeon .
EVIL DEAD RISE is set to be unleashed in UK cinemas on 21 April 2023.
