Question: Question about the franchise in general: would crowd funding be a viable method to finance new installments?
Ash vs Evil Dead (2015)
Starring: Bruce Campbell, Jill Marie Jones, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago
Continuity mistake: During the fight between the deadite woman and Kelly in Ash's trailer, the deadite's fingernails change from long to short in one shot.
Trivia: While the series contains numerous references to "The Evil Dead" and "Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn", it contains virtually no overt references to the third "Evil Dead" film, "Army of Darkness." This is due to an issue with the rights to the third film, as they are owned by a different company than the series and the first two films.

Answer: Series creator Sam Raimi has said that there are three new ideas to continue the franchise, but there's no other information available at this time. Crowd funding could possibly fund another film, sure. But it's such a well-known franchise that it likely wouldn't be necessary. All we really know for sure is that the series "Ash VS Evil Dead" can't return, as it is under partial ownership by Starz, and producer Robert Tapert stated in a Q&A that they weren't interested in selling off the rights to the series. So if more "Evil Dead" is made, it likely wouldn't be a direct continuation of the series.
