Outside Reviews:

Katie Rife
3 out of 4 stars -

However, once "Evil Dead Rise" really gets going, it doesn't let up. This is a loud, giddy, packed-house-at-midnight type of movie, and its premiere at SXSW was accompanied by much hollering, cheering, and genuine screams of fright from the audience. Cronin unabashedly uses both jump scares and "look behind you!"-type of gags to punctuate this pummeling bloodbath, and one scene in particular in the film's roller coaster of a middle section seems bound to inspire a lot of yelling at the screen in multiplexes around the world.

Evil Dead Rise pours pure, unhinged glee into a horror movie made for sickos, by sickos

Evil Dead Rise is a movie made by sickos for sickos. It's a fantastic update to the iconic franchise, filled with humor but bringing in Álvarez's taste for the disgusting and upsetting. The refreshing change in scenery and cast, plus Sutherland's breakout performance, proves this undead franchise still has a lot of life and fight in it.
