The Evil Dead series, with its 3 Sam Raimi directed title films, a subsequent Starz 2 season sequel series as well as 2013’s soft Evil Dead reboot is one of the most successful franchises in the horror genre. That being said, fans may rejoice for the franchise is returning for another installment, this time set in a big city building. This takes the series away from its small town cabin in the woods style.
It was revealed this past summer by Bruce Campbell that “Evil Dead Rise” is set to happen. Campbell was quoted as saying that the: “upcoming movie will shake up the tried-and-tested franchise formula by deviating away from some key narrative staples, such as the classic ‘cabin in the woods’ setting.”
Lee Cronin, who is set to direct said this in a chat with Bloody Disgusting: “I’m confident I’m going to do something that’s both familiar and refreshing,” the director said. “I’m gonna deliver a rollercoaster of horror. That’s what the goal is here. Relentless. Not stopping to explain too much. It needs to be extremely visceral, highly entertaining, properly scary. To push boundaries, that’s important as well.”
