The Evil Dead franchise has been a staple of horror cinema for decades, and with the upcoming release of “Evil Dead Rise,” horror fans are eagerly awaiting the latest addition to the series.
New Characters, New Location
Unlike previous films in the franchise, “Evil Dead Rise” introduces a new set of characters in a new location. Rather than the traditional cabin in the woods, this installment takes place in a cramped and derelict apartment building.
The new setting has been praised for its claustrophobic and terrifying view of the Deadites takeover. Fans can expect to see victims picked off one by one in a setting that heightens the tension and horror.
Lee Cronin, known for his work on “The Hole in the Ground,” is directing “Evil Dead Rise.” The new scream queens have been praised for their performances, and they will assuredly be seen acting in the horror genre again. Although Bruce Campbell has retired from the role of Ash Williams, the main character in previous films and TV series, there is still a possibility of a cameo appearance.
Runtime and Gore
At 96 minutes, “Evil Dead Rise” is the longest film in the franchise, but it still manages to maintain the fast-paced and fun nature of the series. The runtime is lean and every minute counts towards the climax. Fans of the franchise can expect to see the same wildly bloody scenes that have made the series so popular.
Early Reviews and SXSW Screening
Early screenings of “Evil Dead Rise” have received positive reviews, with critics praising the new setting and characters. The film was screened at South by Southwest on March 15, 2023, according to the festival schedule, giving lucky viewers a sneak peek of what’s to come.
After a long production that began in 2019, “Evil Dead Rise” wrapped in October 2021. Originally planned for a streaming release on HBO Max, the decision was made to move the film to a theatrical release, much to the delight of fans. The decision to release the film in theaters is expected to benefit it in the long run and give horror fans the full cinematic experience.
The film, which is slated for release in theaters on April 21, 2023, is a spin-off that introduces new characters and a new location for the Deadites to terrorize. Here’s everything you need to know about “Evil Dead Rise.”
