Evil Dead Rise is coming, and the movie’s very first poster has just been released, and it’s bloody creepy. You can check out the poster for yourselves below, but beware, it’s pretty scary!
He also wrote the movie’s script and has been sharing teases of behind-the-scenes work on the film. We’ve now been given this new look at what will undoubtedly be an unsettling experience in the form of a demonic poster.
It’s already been freaking out audiences. Evil Dead Rise will be in cinemas in the United States and the United Kingdom on April 21st. The movie was originally planned for a release on HBO Max, but after the WarnerMedia and Discovery merger, those plans were scrapped and they’ll release the movie in cinemas before it turns up on any streaming service.
Evil Dead Rise has its first poster, and it’s creepy as Hell!
This will be the fifth Evil Dead film ever made. The first three movies (The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II and Army Of Darkness) were all directed by Sam Raimi, who also created the characters and built the franchise. The fourth movie was a remake/reboot of the franchise, called Evil Dead, and it was directed by Fede Álvarez.
He’s now working on a new Alien movie which will start filming in February. But, what will Evil Dead Rise be all about? Well, it’s been revealed that it’ll feature a road-weary Beth who’s going to have to pay 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.
The new film stars Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, Nell Fisher, Alyssa Sutherland, and Lily Sullivan.

The movie is being produced by Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, and Rob Tapert. They were the star, director and producer of the original movies. So, it does seem as though there will be a lot of shared DNA with the original films.
“This one’s dark, this one’s pretty serious. Good, strong performances,” Bruce Campbell detailed to BlairWitch.De in 2021. “It’s a single mom who now has to deal with this book. These days it’s more about the book. That book gets around, that book is handed around, passed along, people try and get rid of it, they try to bury it or destroy it and they really can’t. So this book just keeps popping up, so really it’s just another story of what happens if this book appears in this particular group of people’s lives and how it intersects.”
He added, “Lee Cronin is a very serious man, he’s a very serious director. Sam Raimi picked him because he did a pretty good job on a movie A Hole in the Ground. He’s a very atmospheric director and Sam thought, ‘Let’s give this guy a shot.’ It’s gonna be really good, we’ve seen a rough [cut] of it already and it has all the components we need. Like anything, when you see a rough version it just has to be tightened, but we’re good. We’re in good shape.”
Evil Dead Rise will be coming to theatres on April 21st later this year. Are you ready for it?
