He adds, “It’s scary, and it’s going to knock people’s socks off. “
When it comes out later this year, Evil Dead Rise will be the franchise’s first film in almost 10 years, after Fede Alvarez’s Evil death 2013 and of course the Starz series “Ash vs. Evil Dead” that brought Bruce Campbell back into the mix.
