Warner Bros. Releases Evil Dead Rise Trailer

Evil Dead Rise Trailer

The Deadites are back!

After much anticipation Warner Bros. has released the trailer for the new installment in the much beloved Evil Dead franchise. Based on the concept created by Sam Raimi who returns to the franchise as a producer alongside Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert on board as producers. The new film, Evil Dead Rise, was written and directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground).

A synopsis for the film has also been revealed:

“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.” – Warner Bros.

Former Vikings actress Alyssa Sutherland stars as the demonically possessed Ellie, while Lily Sullivan is taking the heroic reigns as the road-weary Beth, protecting Ellie’s kids played by Nell Fisher (Northspur), Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence), and Morgan Davies (The End). According to the film’s IMDb page, Shortland actors Jaden Daniels and Billy Reynolds-McCarthy appear alongside actor Tai Wano – his first feature film credit.

Though not listed on the IMDb page for the film, Wikipedia also suggests a new cast member Mia Challis (Clickbait).

The trailer features several images eerily reminiscent of classic horror films, including a visual nod to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining in the form of a blood pouring elevator. The film’s trailer promises a hopeless situation matched with intense gore and black, if not dark, humor spread throughout.

The Evil Dead Rise was initially slated to debut on HBO Max before reportedly high-test scores won over the new management at Warner Bros. causing current CEO David Zaslav to push the film from the streaming service into its own theatrical run. The continuity of the film isn’t specifically stated, whether this exists in the classic continuity, the gritty-but-powerful remake, or its own new universe is unknown.
