New Line Cinema and Renaissance Pictures have revealed the trailer and poster for Evil Dead Rise, the return to the iconic horror franchise from writer/director Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground).
The movie stars Lily Sullivan (I Met a Girl, Barkskins), Alyssa Sutherland (The Mist, Vikings), Morgan Davies (Storm 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 a twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Sutherland and Sullivan, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons.
The sisters are thrusted into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.
