Studiocanal UK has announced that EVIL DEAD RISE, the latest instalment in the iconic Evil Dead horror franchise, will be unleashed for Home Premiere on 5th June 2023.
The film will then be available on Digital Download from 14th July and released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, including a Limited Special Edition SteelBook, from 17th July.
Written and directed by Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground) EVIL DEAD RISE stars Lily Sullivan (I Met a Girl, Barkskins), Alyssa Sutherland (The Mist, Vikings), Morgan Davies (Strom Boy, The End), Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence) and introducing Nell Fisher (Northspur).
Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, EVIL DEAD RISE tells the twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Sutherland and Sullivan, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.
EVIL DEAD RISE is produced by Rob Tapert (Ash vs Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) and executive produced by series creator and horror icon Sam Raimi and cult legend and “Ash” himself, Bruce Campbell, along with John Keville, Macdara Kelleher, Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Romel Adam and Victoria Palmieri.
Cronin is joined behind the camera by Director of Photography Dave Garbett (Z for Zachariah, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), Production Designer Nick Bassett (Guns Akimbo, Sweet Tooth), Editor Bryan Shaw (Ash vs Evil Dead, Spartacus) and Costume Designer Sarah Voon (Chasing Great, Inside), with a score by Stephen McKeon (The Hole in the Ground, Primeval).
