Following yesterday’s tease and poster, Warner Bros. has debuted the first red band trailer for Evil Dead Rise, the fifth instalment in the iconic horror series.
Directed by Lee Cronin, the film follows Beth (LIly Sullivan) as she pays a long overdue visit to her older sister Ellie (Alyssa Sutherland) and her children in L.A., but the happy reunion is cut short when the estranged siblings find themselves in a battle for survival against flesh-possessing demons that have emerged from a mysterious book found in Ellie’s apartment building. Check out the trailer below…
In the fifth Evil Dead film, a road-weary Beth pays 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.
Evil Dead Rise is directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground), with Sam Raimi, Bruce Cambell and Rob Tapert producing. Featuring in the cast are Lily Sullivan (I Met a Girl), Alyssa Sutherland (The Mist), Morgan Davies (The End), Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence), and Nell Fisher (Northspur).
Evil Dead Rise is set for release on April 21st.
