The first creepy AF trailer from Evil Dead Rise has just been unleashed, and by god, it looks fantastic. Watch as people transform into deadites while “Que Sera, Sera” by Doris Day plays in the background.
Written and directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground), the movie stars Lily Sullivan, Alyssa Sutherland, Morgan Davies, Gabrielle Echols, and Nell Fisher.
“Moving 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.”
While franchise star Bruce Campbell will not be reprising his role as Ash, he is serving as a producer and has made a statement about the film’s plot.
“It’s [about] a single mom who now has to deal with this book. These days it’s more about the book. That book gets around. Passed along, people try and get rid of it, they try to bury it or destroy it and they really can’t. So this book just keeps popping up, so really it’s just another story of what happens if this book appears in this particular group of people’s lives and how it intersects.”
Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi are both serving as executive producers.
Deadites return to raise a little hell in Evil Dead Rise on April 21, 2023, exclusively on HBO Max.
