Interview: Lee Cronin, Lily Sullivan, and Alyssa Sutherland Talk Evil Dead Rise

We talk with Evil Dead Rise director, Lee Cronin, as well as the film’s stars, Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland.

Evil Dead is a rarity. It’s one of the very few franchise frights that is routinely good. From the very first film way back in 1981 to the bloody good sequels and spin offs. And even an impressive remake/reboot courtesy of Fede Alvarez. That brings us to the latest in the series, Evil Dead Rise. While the most recent entry into the world of Deadites has nothing to do with Bruce Campbell’s Ash, it manages to be incredibly creepy, intense, and very gruesome. Directed by Lee Cronin, the new flick stars Mirabai Pease, Richard Crouchley, Anna-Maree Thomas, Lily Sullivan, and Alyssa Sutherland.

Recently, we sat down with Mr. Cronin, as well as the film’s stars, Sutherland and Sullivan. First up, we spoke with Lee about his take on Evil Dead, and bringing the red stuff. And yes, there is a lot of it. The filmmaker opened up about his vision, and about paying respect to the original. For Sutherland and Sullivan, the two are terrific as sisters who have a not so pleasant reunion. It was especially fun to hear about Lily’s excitement for this franchise. In a creepily fun film, these two talents are terrific here. Evil Dead Rise is worthy of the hype (check out our review here)! And it’s swallowing souls at a theatre near you this Friday! It may not have Ash, but it’s still quite Groovy.
