As a horror fan, it hasn’t been an easy few years to be living on this planet. In recent memory, we have seen the death of some major franchises and the rise of some major disappointments. However, there is one franchise that has shot back with a harrowing vengeance for the horror genre. That much-loved and trailblazing franchise is Evil Dead. Not only is Evil Dead making a triumphant return in the form of Evil Dead Rise but it is also getting a full-blown reboot for the third time. The third incarnation will be called The Comeback. Now, just in time for the release of its latest installment, Bruce Campbell has teased an image from the first page of Evil Dead Rise and it’s surprisingly ominous. Bruce Campbell shared this image on Twitter saying “EvilDeadRise” about what seems like a creepy-looking tree trunk reaching out to grab you. If this isn’t enough to prick your interest then nothing will be.
Release Date: April 21, 2023

What is the film about?
When two sisters, one of whom has just given birth, find a mysterious book on a family vacation to an isolated cabin in the woods, they unwittingly unleash malevolent forces that have been locked away for decades. Their horror is only heightened when they discover what’s really lurking in the shadows and that their father may have unwittingly set them free. The film looks like it will be a lot more intense than even the first one. Bruce Campbell has hinted that there is something more to this story than meets the eye. The tree trunk in the image, he says, is an integral part of the film and not just a random thing that’s happening in the background. So I’m guessing that it will be something evil.
What fans are expecting from the film?
Fans of the original Evil Dead films and their sequels are hoping that this will be a full-blown return to form. Even though the franchise was rebooted in 2013, it still had a lot of things going for it. It was clever, scary, and had good pacing. If there is one thing the previous films have taught us is that the best way to kick off a franchise is to make sure that it has its feet firmly planted in reality. Fans have been eagerly anticipating this return ever since they heard that it was happening and they cannot wait to see what happens next.
What makes this film interesting?
One of the best things about this film is that Sam Raimi is returning to the helm. The man who directed the films in the first place is coming back to direct again. That alone makes this story interesting. He is not a director who has ever shied away from making sequels and I, for one, am surprised that he bothered to make a reboot at all. As far as I know, he has never shied away from continuing his own stories throughout his career and has even made it a point to make all three films of a trilogy come out in one year.
Who can watch this film?
I am pretty sure that anyone can watch this film and enjoy every second of it. Even though the first film was pretty scary and did have some gruesome moments, it was not overly gory. The best thing that this film has going for it is its pace. It is fast-paced and one of the most action-packed horror films we have seen in a while.
