Evil Dead Rise is the newest film in the Evil Dead franchise, and it’s a brand-new story from writer/director Lee Cronin.
New Line Cinema and Renaissance Pictures present a return to the iconic horror franchise, “Evil Dead Rise,” from writer/director Lee Cronin (“The Hole in the Ground”). The movie stars Lily Sullivan (“I Met a Girl,” “Barkskins”), Alyssa Sutherland (“The Mist,” “Vikings”), Morgan Davies (“Storm Boy,” “The End”), Gabrielle Echols (“Reminiscence”), and introducing Nell Fisher (“Northspur”).
Here’s the official plot synopsis for Evil Dead Rise.
In the fifth Evil Dead 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 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.
Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, and Robert Tapert are all involved as producers on the film, with Campbell saying that the three have been “very involved” in the project.
Evil Dead Rise releases in theaters on April 21st, 2023.
