Watch The Terrifying Trailer for Evil Dead Rise And Get Ready for April 21st!
The Evil Dead franchise started back in 1981 with the release of the low budget film The Evil Dead. It became a cult classic and spawned Evil Dead II in 1987, Army of Darkness in 1992 and 2015's television series Ash vs Evil Dead which ran for 3 seasons. A soft reboot in 2013, Evil Dead, continued the story of the original franchise while serving simultaneously as a refresh that could take the series in new directions. Now, the franchise leaves the woods and goes into the city with the terrifying trailer for Evil Dead Rise which hits theaters April 21, 2023.
Even better, horror icon and franchise creator Sam Raimi produces Evil Dead Rise along with Ash himself, Bruce Campbell. The trailer just dropped, it's absolutely horrifying and I can't wait to see it!

ABOUT EVIL DEAD RISE:
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”).
Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, “Evil Dead Rise” tells a 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 (“Ash vs Evil Dead,” “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 (“Z for Zachariah,” “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans”), production designer Nick Bassett (“Guns Akimbo,” “Sweet Tooth”), editor Bryan Shaw (“Ash vs Evil Dead,” “Spartacus”) and costume designer Sarah Voon (“Chasing Great,” “Inside”), with a score by Stephen McKeon (“The Hole in the Ground,” “Primeval”).

Pictures and is set to open in theaters in North America on April 21, 2023 and internationally beginning 19 April 2023.
