‘Evil Dead Rise’: Producer Bruce Campbell Describes it as a “Dark, Very Adult ‘Evil Dead’ Movie”



'Evil Dead Rise': Producer Bruce Campbell Calls it a "Dark, Very Adult 'Evil Dead' Movie"

While we wait for director Lee Cronin‘s Evil Dead Rise to be unleashed later this year, you can get down with the deadites in the new Evil Dead: The Game in the meantime. Talking of the video game, Evil Dead icon Bruce Campbell, who is producer on Cronin’s Evil Dead Rise, had some interesting things to say about the upcoming film in a new interview inside the hardcover book with the game titled The Art of Evil Dead: The Game.

Campbell had the following to say about Evil Dead Rise, via BD:

I’m very excited about it. It’s going to be really cool and very, very intense. It’s dark, a very adult Evil Dead movie. I wouldn’t call it a yuck fest – it’s pretty tough, pretty hard-hitting stuff. And that’s the variation that you have within the Evil Dead franchise and within horror itself. It’s all about the filmmaker.

Campbell on Lee Cronin:

Sam Raimi handpicks these guys, and so Lee Cronin is the guy who directed it, and he’s a little bit of a serious dude. So you let him do his thing.

The sister’s 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.”

The film was produced by Sam RaimiBruce Campbell and Robert Tapert.
