Movie Preview: A Spooky tale from the woods is revived — “Evil Dead Rise”

So the franchise that made Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell household names is revived, a state-of-the-art horror thriller about mothers and daughters and “maggots.”

Lee Cronin, who dug “The Hole in the Ground,” scripted and directed this reboot, with a nod to Mr. Raimi.

I don’t know. No Raimi behind the camera. No Bruce in front of it. No Morristown, Tennessee “cabin in the woods” setting? Doesn’t seem all that “Evil” without the basics.

April 20.
