Director Lee Cronin’s (The Hole in the Ground) new Evil Dead flick
Evil Dead Now Evil Dead Rise will punish the audience accordingly.
And today, producer Bruce Campbell also says it will ditch the cabin in the woods for a whole, new ballgame.
He tells Diabolique: “The official name is Evil Dead Rise. We’re getting a new draft in. I don’t think anything will happen until 2021.“
He then added: “Full bore ahead, we’re very excited about it. A whole, new ballgame. No more cabin in the woods.”
Sounds good to me!
Written and directed by Sam Raimi, the original classic centers on Ash Williams and four pals who hike into the woods to a cabin for a fun night away. There they find an old book whose text reawakens the dead when it’s read aloud. The friends inadvertently release a flood of evil and must fight for their lives or become one of the evil dead. Ash must make a difficult decision before daybreak to save his own life.
Rated R for substantial graphic horror violence and gore, the film sports a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: This classic low budget horror film combines just the right amount of gore and black humor, giving The Evil Dead an equal amount of thrills and laughs.
