Evil Dead Rise | Lee Cronin Addresses Children in Horror Films And Making This Film His Own

Evil Dead Rise

Evil Dead franchise has evolved significantly since 1981 with sequels, a reboot, a video game, and even a television series. It is director Lee Cronin’s turn to make Evil Dead Rise his take on the well-known franchise while keeping many of its signature scares.

The film is the next installment to the franchise that stars Lily Sullivan (I Met a Girl, Barkskins), Alyssa Sutherland (The Mist, Vikings), Morgan Davies (Storm Boy, The End), Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence), and Nell Fisher (Northspur).

Here is the official synopsis:

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.
