Feast On The Official Evil Dead Rise Red Band Trailer!

With a pretty great poster reveal yesterday, today, Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the official red band trailer for Evil Dead Rise!

The fifth feature length film in the franchise, Evil Dead Rise serves as a sequel to the 2013 reboot film, the aptly titled Evil Dead. In this latest incarnation, “…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.

That’s the good news, the bad news is that while serving as a producer, Bruce Campbell won’t be reprising his most famous role, Ash Williams, saying, “Even though I’m not in this film, as a producer, I’m all over this movie like a cheap suit. I guess you could say, I have a hand in it.” This doesn’t rule out a non-physical appearance or cameo however, something he did in the 2013 film, showing up very briefly in an end-credits scene.

Here’s the press release…

New Line Cinema and Renaissance Pictures present a return to the iconic horror franchise, “Evil Dead Rise,” from writer/director Lee Cronin (“The Hole in the Ground”). The movie stars Lily Sullivan (“I Met a Girl,” “Barkskins”), Alyssa Sutherland (“The Mist,” “Vikings”), Morgan Davies (“Storm Boy,” “The End”), Gabrielle Echols (“Reminiscence”) and introducing Nell Fisher (“Northspur”). 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, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.

Evil Dead Rise doesn’t drop until April 21st, but in the meantime, check out the red band trailer below in all its 4K glory! And oh yes, here’s your CONTENT WARNING!
