Warner Bros. Pictures has released the official first trailer for the highly-anticipated “Evil Dead Rise”.
The project what marks the fifth “Evil Dead” film following Sam Raimi’s original trilogy and Fede Alvarez’s remake.
In the film, a road-weary Beth pays an overdue visit to her older sister Ellie who is raising three kids on her own in a cramped Los Angeles apartment.
The sisters’ reunion is cut short by the discovery of a mysterious book deep in the bowels of Ellie’s building, giving rise to flesh-possessing demons and thrusting Beth into a primal battle for survival as she is faced with the most nightmarish version of motherhood imaginable.
Nell Fisher, Alyssa Sutherland, Lily Sullivan, Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, Mia Challis, Jayden Daniels, Tai Wano, and Billy Reynolds-McCarthy co-star. Bruce Campbell won’t be reprising his Ash Williams role, which he last played across three seasons of Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead”.
The project was initially designed as an HBO Max original film but was pulled in August last year and reshaped for a theatrical release. The film famously had to hire an industrial kitchen to create the amount of fake blood they required for the film’s shoot
“The Hole In The Ground” filmmaker Lee Cronin penned and directed this R-rated feature which is slated to open in cinemas on April 21st 2023.
