The film is produced by Raimi and Robert Tapert, who produced the original “Evil Dead” films, along with Bruce Campbell. “Evil Dead Rise” is set to be released exclusively on the streaming service HBO Max, although a specific release date has not been announced yet.

Evil Dead Rise Release Date

No official release date for “Evil Dead Rise” has been announced yet. However, it has been confirmed that the film will be released exclusively on the streaming service HBO Max. It is possible that a release date could be announced in the future as production progresses and marketing efforts ramp up. I do not have any information beyond my cutoff date of September 2021, so it’s best to keep an eye out for updates from the production team or the streaming service.

Evil Dead Rise Cast

The main cast of “Evil Dead Rise” includes:
  1. Alyssa Sutherland as Beth – one of the two sisters at the center of the story
  2. Lily Sullivan as Ellie – Beth’s younger sister
  3. Jessica Green as Jenny
  4. Gabrielle Echols as Olivia
  5. Morgan Davies as Natalie
  6. Nell Fisher as Amanda
  7. Stephen Peacocke as Peter

As previously mentioned, the film will not feature Bruce Campbell’s iconic character, Ash Williams. The main cast will be primarily made up of new characters, as the film is a direct sequel to the original “Evil Dead” trilogy and is not a continuation of the 2013 “Evil Dead” remake.

Evil Dead Rise Plot

The plot of “Evil Dead Rise” revolves around two estranged sisters, Beth and Ellie, who reunite after a family tragedy. They travel to a high-rise building in the city, where they accidentally unleash a group of demons. As the demons begin to possess the residents of the building, the sisters must band together to fight for survival and defeat the evil forces.

The film is set to take place in a new location, which is a departure from the cabin in the woods setting of the original “Evil Dead” films. It will also feature a new cast of characters, with no direct connection to the previous films beyond the overarching demonic threat.

While details about the plot are still somewhat limited, it is expected to have the same blend of horror and humor that has become a trademark of the “Evil Dead” franchise and will likely include plenty of gore and supernatural mayhem.

Evil Dead Rise Review

As of my knowledge cutoff of September 2021, “Evil Dead Rise” had not yet been released, so there are no official reviews available. However, the film has generated significant interest among horror fans due to its status as a direct sequel to the original “Evil Dead” trilogy and its exclusive release on the streaming service HBO Max.

Director Lee Cronin has expressed his admiration for the original films and his desire to honor their legacy while also bringing his own vision to the franchise. The absence of Bruce Campbell’s character, Ash Williams, has been a point of contention for some fans, but others are excited to see a new cast of characters take on the demonic threat.
Without any reviews or additional information beyond my cutoff date of September 2021, it’s difficult to predict how the film will be received. However, given the enduring popularity of the “Evil Dead” franchise and the talent involved in the production, it is likely that the film will generate significant buzz and interest from fans of horror and original films.
