If This Photo Is Any Indication, ‘Evil Dead Rise’ Is Going to Be an Absolute Bloodbath! [Image]

The Hole in the Ground‘s Lee Cronin‘s is deep into production on Evil Dead Rise and has been sharing a bunch of really fun behind-the-scenes photos.

Today’s photo is the icing on the cake – the promise of an exceptional amount of blood that will hopefully rival that of Fede Alvarez’s 2013 Evil Dead, which literally ended in a gore-soaked bloodbath. The odds Cronin can top it? Slim to none, but I like what I see!

“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.” – Deadline

Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence), Morgan Davies (The End) and Nell Fisher (Splendid Isolation) will star in the new movie alongside Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan.

Sam RaimiBruce 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. It’ll arrive on HBO Max next year.
