‘Evil Dead Rise’ Trailer: A groovy horror classic returns

That Evil death is rising again.

For the first time in a decade, there is a new one Evil death movie. The previous installment, Evil death, was a reboot of the original franchise. The new movie, Evil Dead Rise, the action moves from a cabin in the woods to an urban apartment building. However, the Necronomicon, The Book of Dead, which always starts trouble in these movies, is still on hand. And after its contents are read again, the evil dead begin to rise. (Why people keep reading from this thing, I’ll never know. Just read another book! The Pelican Brief never animated a single corpse.)

While Bruce Campbell’s Ash is not present (at least not in the trailer), Campbell is an executive producer of the film along with the series creator Sam Raimi. (Lee Cronin, who previously did 2019’s The hole in the grounddirected the film, which is the fifth in Evil death series.) Here is the green-band trailer for Evil Dead Rises:

Warner Bros. also revealed a much more violent red-band trailer, which features a ton of extra scenes and a lot more gore. (It also features another signature element of the franchise: a good old chainsaw.) You can watch it on YouTube by clicking the embed below:

Here is the film’s 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 that thrust them into a primal battle for survival when faced with the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.

Evil Dead Rise is slated to open in theaters on April 21.
