Warner Bros debuts poster and trailer for Evil Dead Rise
The strange hilarious and sometimes terrifying world of the Evil Dead has been entertaining fans since the original debuted in 1981. Since it spawned an excellent sequel, a comedic third feature and an all-around kick ass series along with a pretty great remake. Now producer of the series Ash vs Evil Dead, Rob Tapert is reteaming with both Sam Raimi and Ash himself Bruce Campbell as producers for a new journey into the dead with Evil Dead Rise. This time The Hole in the Ground director Lee Cronin is at the helm and stars Lily Sullivan, Alyssa Sutherland, Morgan Davies, Gabrielle Echols, and Nell Fisher.
Evil Dead Rise follows a road-weary Beth who pays an overdue visit to her older sister Ellie, who is raising three kids on her own in a cramped L.A 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.
While we still have to wait until April 21, 2023 to see the film in theaters you can check out the first poster and trailer here now from Warner Bros.
