In an interview with BlairWitch.De, Bruce Campbell revealed new details about the plot of ‘The Devil’s Death – The Ascension‘ (Evil Dead Rise), stating that the new film will have a “dark and serious” tone, unlike the old movies of the original franchise.
“The new movie will be different [dos anteriores]. It will be very dark and have a very serious tone. There are strong and great performances. It’s about a single mother who has to deal with the book of the dead. The story revolves around the book… The book was passed from hand to hand. People try to get rid of it – try to bury it or destroy it – but they can’t. So, this book keeps popping up. This is a story about what happens when this book is introduced into the lives of a specific group of people. And how they deal with this situation.”
he continues, “The family at the beginning of the story is not the same at the end of the film. All characters are part of the same family in this movie. And I think owning and killing your own relatives is even heavier.”
The plot will follow two distant sisters, played by Alyssa Sutherland e Lily Sullivan, whose reunion is interrupted when demons are unleashed, putting them in a primal battle for survival as they face the most terrifying version of family imaginable.
Gabrielle Echols (‘Paths of Memory’), Morgan Davies (‘The Hunter) and Nell Fisher complete the cast.
Sam Raimi e Bruce Campbell, director and star, respectively, of the original trilogy, will be the producers of the new version.
In 2013, the acclaimed filmmaker Faith Alvarez invested in a remake that raised $100 million around the world, from a budget of $16 million. In addition, it guaranteed a solid reception by the specialized critics, accumulating 62% of positive ratings on Rotten Tomatoes.
