Evil Dead film series is the brainchild of Sam Raimi and featured franchise staple star Bruce Campbell in three parts. Raimi introduced the first part as a unique horror flick with lots of gruesome scenes merged with his signature camera shots.
It was the second film in the franchise that added a touch of comedy blended with gallons of blood. Yes! The unforgettable and iconic chainsaw scene birthed one of the coolest weapons against the dead in the cinema history. Raimi bid farewell to the director’s chair of the franchise with the third instalment.
In 2013, Fede Alvarez directed a rebooted version with a female lead. Campbell and Raimi worked together as producers, besides the real producer Rob Tapert.
However, in 2015, Campbell once again took on the mantle of our beloved protagonist in Ash vs Evil Dead TV series. Now, Evil Dead Rise lands as another instalment in the franchise.
Given so much iteration in the film series, viewers got a bit confused. In an interview with a prominent media outlet, Raimi was asked about the film series and their different timelines.
He stated, “I enjoy collaborating with Bruce and Rob. I enjoy it as a producer because they are great collaborators, but I also enjoy having their support as a director. So I’m hoping that will happen eventually.”
“Mia was fantastic, so I was intrigued. We had been discussing an Evil Dead IV for the other branch of that universe and were concerned about a collision. That evolved into Ash vs. Evil Dead. But I’ve always believed that there was room for both. I still believe there is room for a variety of Evil Dead films. I do not believe they cancel each other out,” Raimi concluded.
All the mysteries around Evil Dead Rise will be uncovered with its release on April 21, 2023.
