In an article from movieweb, the Evil Dead Rise producer Bruce Campbell teased that the film may get elevated to theatrical screenings. True enough, this news arrives to affirm this statement:

We just had a preview that went… That was very high ratings. They were potentially going to stream it on HBO Max, but it might go theatrical. Maybe in the fall.

Jon Kondelik @JonKondelik responded to Cronin’s tweet saying

Test Screening was amazing! Well deserved! I overheard some executives asking “but will we make our money back on this?” I interjected and said, “you’re gonna make your money back because this was awesome!”

Evil Dead Rise will the fifth movie of the franchise. Meanwhile, the movie stars Alyssa Sutherland, Lily Sullivan, Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, Nell Fisher, and Mia Challis. The film has the following official synopsis:

In the fifth Evil Dead film, a road-weary Beth pays an overdue visit to her older sister Ellie, who is raising three kids on her own in a cramped L.A. apartment. The sisters’ 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.

Apparently, even though Campbell is part of the movie behind the camera, fans will be disappointed to know he won’t appear as Ash Williams. However, things are looking up for the franchise as those who have seen the test screening have seemed to unanimously determine the movie is that great.

Opening the ‘you know which book we are referring to’ is yet again signaling the end of the normal world as we know it. Still having the chance to see it on the big screen is just comedy horror promising funny. Thus, we cannot help but look forward to seeing the movie.
