The brand new movie Evil Dead Rise just premiered at SXSW last night, earing rave reviews from most horror fans in attendance. Bloody Disgusting’s Head Critic Meagan Navarro published her review in the wee hours of the morning, writing: “Evil Dead Rise is an absolute crowd pleaser that’s best enjoyed with a rowdy crowd of fellow fans.”
As part of the SXSW premiere, Warner Bros. worked with artist BossLogic to whip up a brand new official poster for Evil Dead Rise, and you can check that out down below. The art pays tribute to a particularly nasty cheese grater scene in the movie, glimpsed in the official trailer.
BossLogic tweeted this morning, “I was fortunate enough to get an early look at this film and it is awesome! This one really takes the franchise to the next level!”
Director Lee Cronin’s (The Hole in the Ground) Evil Dead Rise is coming exclusively to theaters on April 21, 2023. Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence), Morgan Davies (The End) and Nell Fisher (Splendid Isolation) star alongside Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for Evil Dead Rise…
“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.”
Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert are producing Evil Dead Rise. According to Campbell, the three have been “very involved” in the project every step of the way.
