About this deal

Trapped within the twisted, nightmarish corridors, the sisters must fight for their lives and find a way to close the portal before evil engulfs the world. We use cookies to give you the best possible experience on our site, provide personalised content and advertising, analyse our traffic, and ensure you see more of what you love. However, after an earthquake splits the floor of the apartment garage open- revealing an ancient bank vault- all hell literally breaks loose. Though Cronin approaches gore with the hand of an auteur, he doesn't make his characters feel special or give us many compelling reasons to care for them. Fifth entry in the 'Evil Dead' franchise, directed by Lee Cronin and starring Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan.

The title for the next instalment is revealed to be Evil Dead Rise, and it is announced that the film was picked up by New Line and HBO Max.Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, "Evil Dead Rise" tells a twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Sutherland and Sullivan, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh‐possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable. Garbett had cut his teeth on 'Ash vs Evil Dead,' and so was well used to capturing deadite violence and gargantuan blood levels on screen; as his consummate and assured work in the finished film shows. Closed captions (CC) refer to subtitles in the available language with the addition of relevant non-dialogue information. Cheese-graters, chainsaws and electrical wiring are but a few of the cleverly implemented items of destruction Cronin utilises to great effect in the film.

Evil Dead Rise is produced by long time franchise producer Rob Tapert (Ash vs Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) and executive produced by series creator and horror icon Sam Raimi and cult legend and "Ash" himself, Bruce Campbell. What sets it apart though is its humour, that is, it is so 'over-the-top' with the blood and crazy action that it, to me anyway, is like watching a comic book come to life, which takes the edge off any darkness or disturbing elements, since it seems so tongue-in-cheek and fantastical. As they confront the most horrifying embodiment of family conceivable, the sisters are propelled into a visceral struggle for survival against these nightmarish forces. Under Cronin's direction, cinematographer Dave Garbett makes the most of the limited space of the apartment, capturing the brutality and carnage crisply and clearly. Sam Raimi confirms that a new Evil Dead film is in the works, and Bruce Campbell will executive produce.Extras: Language(s): English, Hard of Hearing Subtitles: English, Interactive Menu, Screen ratio 1:2.
