Evil Dead Rise Extended Preview (2023) | Vudu

“The spirit and energy of the movies that came before was the key thing that I wanted to maintain,” Cronin told io9 when Evil Dead Rise hit theaters last month. “Even if I did it in my own way, using my own approach, voice, vision, I definitely wanted to carry the energy, the kind of relentlessness of the movie. When I was writing the screenplay, the most important word to me was ‘entertainment.’ I wanted to make sure it was an entertaining movie. Despite the splatter fest, despite the level and the volume of horror that’s in it, that was really, really important. I never wanted to waste a moment. I want the audience to really be on the steam train that’s hurtling along with the characters.”


Evil Dead Rise stars Lily Sullivan, Alyssa Sutherland, Morgan Davies, Gabrielle Echols, Nell Fisher, and a truly horrific new type of Deadite you’ll have to make it to act three to witness for yourself. The movie’s still in theaters, but you can also stream it in close proximity to all your kitchen gadgets (CHEESE GRATER) on Vudu.
