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, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.
If you can’t watch the Red Band trailer (YouTube requires you to login), the Green Band trailer is just below it.
Fans of the franchise are certainly excited to be getting some new material and Rise definitely looks true to form with a much heavier emphasis on the horror aspect this time around (as opposed to the goofy and silly stuff). We have no doubts that the film will have some absurd moments but the trailer, especially the Red Band version, left chills down our spines.
Evil Dead Rise comes to theaters on April 21st.
