The Horror Comedy franchise Evil Dead has given its audience a masterpiece by going all out with Horror. Evil Dead Rise is the fifth film of the franchise. Though it is the fifth, it is not a sequel to the 2013 Evil Dead Movie. While all the evil dead movies have taken place in the jungle or a cabin, this movie takes place in an apartment in the city. The comedy in this film is a dark comedy that puts a smile on your face but cannot guarantee that it makes you laugh out loud.
Many easter eggs in this movie remind us of other thriller movies like Shining. The Book of the Dead and other elements like fake blood were ideally used in this film.
The movie is packed with creative and bloody carnage. Eye trauma, hand trauma, broken glass, broken bones, vomit, bugs, dismemberment, decapitation, shotgun blasts, stab wounds, and sharp objects go straight through the soft palate and out the back of someone’s head. Name a form of gore and bodily harm, and this movie delivers.
This movie franchise has accomplished something miraculous in terms of horror movie franchises. Much of this comes down to series creator Sam Raimi, who’s picky enough about who he lets play with his groovy blood-soaked baby that there have only been five “Evil Dead” movies over the course of forty-plus years. But there’s also something about the elemental simplicity of its premise—the loony “Army of Darkness” excepted, of course—that makes “Evil Dead” work.
- The acting of Alyssa Sutherland. She has done a phenomenal job when it comes to acting as a possessed mother.
