‘Speak No Evil’ – Mackenzie Davis Joins James McAvoy in Upcoming Horror Remake

Ten years ago, the characters in Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead were cleverly given first names that allowed the first letters of each of their names to spell out DEMON – David, Eric, Mia, Olivia, Natalie – and Lee Cronin’s Evil Dead Rise has similarly hidden some Easter Eggs within the characters’ names. Every character in the new movie is named after a past Evil Dead star!

Here’s the full main character roster, and the stars their names pay tribute to…

Actor/Character: Lily Sullivan – Beth
