The Evil Dead Franchise is giving its fans a double surprise by not only launching Evil Dead: The Game which is now available but also their new movie Evil Dead Rise is set to debut exclusively on HBO Max in 2022.
The director of the original Trilogy of Evil Dead films and the recent Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Sam Raimi, himself recently confirmed to fans that the upcoming Evil Dead Rise is “terrifying.”
Bruce Campbell Teased Evil Dead Rise as ‘Very Adult’
Though very few details regarding the new movie Evil Dead Rise have been disclosed till now, it’s unclear what Campbell was referring to, but with the older versions, we can say that the series could be tackling more mature subject matter than its predecessors.
In a conversation with Bloody Disgusting, Bruce Campbell shared his thoughts on the upcoming movie Evil Dead Rise.
“I’m very excited about it. It’s going to be really cool and very, very intense. It’s dark, a very adult Evil Dead movie. “I wouldn’t call it a yuck fest – it’s pretty tough, pretty hard-hitting stuff. And that’s the variation that you have within the Evil Dead franchise and within horror itself. It’s all about the filmmaker.”
Given how Campbell teases about it, it’s gonna be an upgraded version of its predecessors.
Campbell continues, “Sam Raimi handpicks these guys, and so Lee Cronin is the guy who directed it, and he’s a little bit of a serious dude. So you let him do his thing.”
The New Installment of The Evil Dead Franchise
The synopsis of Evil Dead Rise reads, “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.”
