Dubbed a “gnarly crowd pleaser” that “forges bloody new ground for the franchise” in Meagan Navarro’s review here on Bloody Disgusting, I personally cannot wait to see Evil Dead Rise, which will be unleashed in just a few more weeks. While we wait, a fan-made trailer that went up onto YouTube this week reimagines the film’s trailer in the iconic LEGO style.
From the YouTube channel LMS (short for Lego Stop Motion), the fun video is a faithful recreation of the bloody Red Band trailer for Evil Dead Rise. LEGO cheese grater and all.

Director Lee Cronin’s (The Hole in the Ground) Evil Dead Rise is coming exclusively to theaters on April 21, 2023. Gabrielle Echols (Reminiscence), Morgan Davies (The End) and Nell Fisher (Splendid Isolation) star alongside Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for Evil Dead Rise…
“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.”
Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert are producing Evil Dead Rise. According to Campbell, the three have been “very involved” in the project every step of the way.
