About Evil Dead Rise Movie:

Principal photography took place in New Zealand from June 2021. Filming officially wrapped on October 27, 2021.

As with past installments in the series, the film relied more heavily on practical effects than computer-generated imagery.

The film used over 6,500 liters of fake blood.

In April 2022, Stephen McKeon was announced to be composing the score, after collaborating with Lee Cronin on The Hole in the Ground (2019).

Is the only Evil Dead film to not feature the 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale vehicle.

The second Evil Dead film that doesn’t have Bruce Campbell as a main character.

Evil Dead Rise was originally set to premiere on the streaming service HBO Max, but distributor Warner Bros. Pictures opted to release the film theatrically first after positive test screenings.

The film was originally meant to be released exclusively through HBOMax via direct-to-streaming, but it performed so strongly during test screenings that the studio decided to release it theatrically instead.

Evil Dead Rise had its premiere at South by Southwest (SXSW) on March 15, 2023, and was released in the United States on April 21, by Warner Bros. Pictures. It was released digitally on May 9, 2023, and on DVD, Blu-ray, and Ultra HD Blu-ray on June 27. The film was available to stream on Max beginning June 23.

The film received generally positive reviews from critics and has grossed over $146 million worldwide against a production budget of $15–19 million, making it the highest-grossing film in the series.

Evil Dead Rise grossed $67.2 million in the United States and Canada, and $79.5 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $146.7 million.

In the United States and Canada, Evil Dead Rise was released alongside The Covenant, Chevalier, and the wide expansion of Beau Is Afraid, and was projected to gross $15–20 million from 3,402 theaters in its opening weekend.

Evil Dead Rise was nominated in three categories at the 2023 Golden Trailer Awards: the film itself (Buddha Jones) for Best Horror, and “You” (Buddha Jones) and “Free” (Level Up AV) for Best Horror TV Spot (for a Feature Film). It won the latter category for “Click Review” (MOCEAN). The film became a runner-up for Best Horror at the 6th Hollywood Critics Association Midseason Film Awards.
