Evil Dead Rise is set to debut exclusively on HBO Max in 2022. Before that happens, Sam Raimi sat down with Slash Film to talk a little about the upcoming movie and tease what can be expected from longtime fans and newcomers alike. While the original, 1981’s The Evil Dead, was a straight horror movie, the franchise has grown increasingly comedic over the years. However, Raimi makes the film sound as if it’ll be leaning more towards the series’ horror roots. An approach shared with the previous film in the series.
