Sam Raimi, the mastermind behind The Evil Dead, is set to direct and produce a new horror thriller movie titled Send Help, produced in collaboration with 20th Century Studios. The film, which has yet to be greenlit, is expected to blend elements from Misery and Castaway, taking place on an island. The script will be written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, known for their work on Friday the 13th (2013) and Baywatch. Raimi's extensive portfolio includes iconic horror films and a successful venture into superhero movies, with notable works such as the Spider-Man trilogy and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. More details about Send Help, including its release date and casting, are still under wraps.

What is the plot of Send Help?

Send Help is described as a horror-thriller set on an island, combining elements from Stephen King's Misery and the classic film Castaway. Specific plot details are sparse, but it promises a unique blend of isolation and psychological terror.

Sam Raimi, a celebrated figure in the horror genre, gained prominence with The Evil Dead series, which has become a cornerstone of cult horror. His influence expanded into the superhero domain with directing credits for the Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire and 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Raimi continues to be an active force in the industry, balancing horror classics with blockbuster superhero films.
