Post-production is well underway on Evil Dead Rise, as revealed in a tweet from the film’s director, Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground).
“New Year, same intense cut,” Cronin wrote. “Deeper into the timeline we go on #EvilDeadRise.” He also referred to 2022 as the “Year of the Deadite,” which feels appropriate considering that we’re getting both a new Evil Dead game and the franchise’s first film in almost a decade.
In Evil Dead Rise, “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.”
