The fifth installment in the Evil Dead franchise will now hit theatres in April, instead of its original HBO Max release date of the fall of 2022.
The upcoming film is a terrifying new instalment in the iconic horror franchise created by Sam Raimi in the 1980s.
The plot centres on two estranged sisters whose reunion is thwarted by – what else? – the discovery of a mysterious book that summons demons. It shifts the action from the woods to the city.
A new group of young people uncover the Necronomicon, inadvertently unleashing the mother of all evil. Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, EVIL DEAD RISE (directed by Lee Cronin) tells the 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.
Although the movie doesn’t seem to be related to any of the other ones, including the 2013 adaptation, it promises plenty of gore-filled thrills.
In cinemas April 21st 2023.
