Sam Raimi Endorses ‘EVIL DEAD RISE’


Sam Raimi, the director who first brought The Evil Dead series to life in 1981, is currently serving as executive producer of the upcoming Evil Dead Rise, and he has given his seal of approval to the latest instalment. It’s always a good thing when the original creative mind endorses a new project like Evil Dead Rise.

In a recent interview with Slashfilm Raimi had the following to say.

I’ve seen a rough cut [of ‘Evil Dead Rise’], a medium fine cut, and a fine cut. There’s probably a few changes that Lee Cronin is making that I haven’t seen, but it’s great. It’s terrifying and it’s going to knock people’s socks off.
