Horrific Sounds Echo from the ‘Evil Dead Rise’ Editing Bay! [Listen]











Brad Miska writes:


I’ll swallow your soul!

While Sam Raimi’s camerawork is a staple of The Evil Dead films, the sound elements are the glue that takes everything to the next level, delivering the extra gross and scary.

Later this year, horror fans are in for a treat when HBO Max serves up a brand new tale of the Necronomicon with Evil Dead Rise, a spinoff sequel this time directed by The Hole in the Ground‘s Lee Cronin.

While a date has yet to be set, filming is completed and Cronin is hard at work editing the film where he’s continually teasing us hardcore fans on social media. The latest is a fun soundbite from outside of the editing suite where we can hear a little taste of the carnage that will consume a new family, this time trapped in an apartment building.

Production on the upcoming sequel Evil Dead Rise wrapped last year, with director Lee Cronin taking to social media to confirm that progress was being made on the latest edit of the experience, though the behind-the-scenes photo he shared failed to offer any glimpses of actual footage. The filmmaker also noted that 2022 would be the "year of the Deadite," seemingly implying that the franchise is about to return in a major way to bring the franchise back to its rightful glory and reputation. The film is currently expected to be debuting sometime this year on HBO Max, though some fans can't help but wonder if it could also get a big-screen debut.

Other confirmed playable characters thus far include Ellen Sandweiss‘s Cheryl Williams from The Evil DeadMarcus Gilbert‘s Arthur from Army of Darkness, and Richard DeManincor‘s Scotty from The Evil Dead, as well as Ray Santiago‘s Pablo Simon Bolivar and Dana DeLorenzo‘s Kelly Maxwell from “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” with the demon Eligos from the Starz series being included as well. Henrietta from Evil Dead 2 and Evil Ash from Army of Darkness will also be featured in the game, as well as Henry the Red from Army of Darkness.

The team has also announced some new additions today, confirming that Betsy Baker will be back as The Evil Dead‘s Linda, alongside Theresa Tilly‘s Shelly in “special appearances.” Presumably that means the actors will be voicing their original characters, and this now means that all five main actors from Sam Raimi’s original The Evil Dead will be back for the game!
