Evil Dead Rise clip discovers a different edition of the Necronomicon

Evil Dead Rise clip shows how the film’s edition of the Necronomicon enters the picture. Movie reaches theatres later this month

Evil Dead Rise, the latest entry in the Evil Dead franchise, is set to reach theatres on April 21st (you can read our review right HERE) – and now the marketing department has decided to promote the film by releasing a full clip from it. We’ve heard that this movie will feature a different edition of the Necronomicon than characters have leafed through in the other films, and in this clip we see just how this edition of the Necronomicon enters the story. You can watch the clip in the Twitter embed below:

Evil Dead franchise creator Sam Raimi handpicked Lee Cronin to write and direct a new Evil Dead movie after seeing his feature directorial debut The Hole in the Ground. The story Cronin crafted for Evil Dead Rise has the following synopsis: A road-weary Beth pays an overdue visit to her older sister Ellie, who is raising three kids on her own in a cramped L.A apartment. The sisters’ reunion is cut short by the discovery of a mysterious book deep in the bowels of Ellie’s building, giving rise to flesh-possessing demons, and thrusting Beth into a primal battle for survival as she is faced with the most nightmarish version of motherhood imaginable.

Although the film is set in Los Angeles, filming actually took place in New Zealand. Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland star as the estranged sisters at the heart of the story. Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, and Nell Fisher play Ellie’s three kids. Mia Challis is playing Jessica, “an 18 year old girl, who is obsessed with fashion and Instagram. Jessica loves to be the center of attention, although she is smarter than she lets on”.

Bruce Campbell doesn’t have an acting role in Evil Dead Rise, as he has formally retired from playing franchise hero Ash on screen, but he did produce the movie alongside Raimi and Rob Tapert, as those three hold the rights to the series. Evil Dead Rise is a collaboration between Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, and Ghost House Pictures.
