Evil Dead Rise was only going to be an HBO Max release, but after some online discourse and some talk from Bruce Campbell, it managed to change the minds of the powers that be! The film will now be incredibly and rightfully released in theaters!
The deal between streaming and theatrical has been a strange sort of adventure for studios to navigate. However, this a big win for the fans who took it to the mat on this one going to theaters. Who wants to see a big horror movie in towering skyscrapers filled with demons… kinda like Demons 2, on a small screen? We won, y’all!
The synopsis for Evil Dead Rise goes like this:
When 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. The book’s contents, spoken aloud, give rise to flesh-possessing demons, and Beth finds herself thrust into a primal battle for survival as she is faced with the most nightmarish version of motherhood imaginable.
