Swallow Your Soul: The Evil Dead Rise Heads to HBO MAX


Just last year it was announced that the Evil Dead would be returning in another movie that would be directly connected to the original trilogy of films but would not feature Bruce Campbell's Ash in a central role. Officially titled at The Evil Dead Rise, the movie was initially going to be a theatrical release with both Campbell and Raimi on board as producers. Today, that all changed. It's just been announced that the movie has officially been picked up by HBO for a streaming release on their HBO MAX outlet. Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground) will be directing this fourth film in the original chronology. 

A quick synopsis is: "The next chapter in the saga builds off the original trilogy rather than the 2013 reboot. Evil Dead rise moves the action out of the woods and into the city. The twisted tale centers on two estranged sisters portrayed by Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh possessing demons."

The film will go into production next month in New Zealand and is expected to shoot over the summer. We have no official release date yet but will update as we hear more. 

The current wave of straight to HBO MAX releases continues with the newest Evil Dead movie. We can't wait to see it!
