Plot Synopsis of Evil Dead Movie
“In the sixth Evil Dead film, a weary Beth makes a long-overdue visit to her older sister Ellie, who is single-handedly raising three children in a tiny Los Angeles apartment. The sisters’ reunion is cut short when a mysterious book is found in the basement of Ellie’s building. This book brings about flesh-eating demons and forces Beth to fight for her life as she faces the worst version of motherhood.
Alyssa Sutherland (Vikings) will play Ellie, the LA-based mother, while Lily Sullivan (Mental) will play Beth, her sister. Mia Challis (User Not Found) is also listed to play a character named Jessica, while Morgan Davies, Gabrielle Echols, and Nell Fisher are listed as unnamed characters.
Where Are You Going to See Evil Dead Rise?
Universal will distribute the picture directly to HBO Max in the United States, while it will be released in theatres in the United Kingdom and France. Direct-to-streaming is becoming increasingly prevalent for both large and small movies, as people have reportedly begun to prefer seeing film premieres at home rather than in theatres.
