Introducing ‘Evil Dead Rise’
The ‘Evil Dead franchise is back with a new installment, but the action won’t take place in a cabin in the woods now. In ‘Evil Dead Rise,’ the setting is an apartment building home to a single mother, Ellie, and her three children. However, things turn sinister when the building is revealed to sit atop an old bank containing the Necronomicon, also known as The Book Of The Dead. This ancient text allows mystical zombies known as the Deadites into our world. The demonic book has appeared in previous ‘Evil Dead movies, and in ‘Evil Dead Rise,’ it gives birth to bloodthirsty demons that run amok in the apartment building where Ellie and her kids are staying.
Who Stars in ‘Evil Dead Rise’?
Alyssa Sutherland (‘Timeless’) stars as Ellie, the woman who unwittingly lives in an apartment that is sat on top of an ancient evil, and Lily Sullivan (‘Picnic At Hanging Rock’) stars as her estranged sister, Beth, who will surely regret her decision to visit her sibling. The rest of the cast includes Gabrielle Echols as Bridget, Morgan Davies as Danny, Nell Fisher as Kassie, Mia Challis as Jessica, Tai Wano as Scott, Jayden Daniels as Gabriel, and Billy Reynolds-McCarthy as Jake.
Bruce Campbell, who famously played Ash in the original movie trilogy, is missing from the cast list. He won’t be in the new movie, but fans may want to keep their eyes peeled for an Easter Egg related to his legendary movie character.
