Evil Dead Rise is a 2023 horror film. It belongs to the classic supernatural horror franchise started by the original 1981 film “Evil Dead”. And it has become a surprise hit.
This latest horror movie is attracting many cinema fans to the theatre. Originally this movie was meant to be released exclusively through direct-to-streaming, but during its test screenings, it performed so well that its producers decided to release it theatrically instead. The original Evil Dead movie was written and directed by Sam Raimi and we have shared the trailer of the original film at the end.
Synopsis of this 2023 horror film from Hollywood
Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, this film 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.
Spoilers free brief review of the Evil Dead Rise (2023) film
When we (me and my team) watched this new horror movie on a big screen on a night show, we liked its content. And even at those odd hours on a weekday, horror movie aficionados were present in good numbers. Like us, many of them loved the idea of getting and feeling scared while viewing this eerie film.
However, some of them found blood, gore and violence a little too much unpalatable. Strictly speaking, it is not for the faint-hearted, but only for die-hard horror film fans.
This may be an unpopular opinion, so kindly do not take it to heart.
Anyway, we have already told you that we liked this movie, but we loved the iconic “Evil Dead” movie more. For us, the old is still the gold.

Classic trailer of The Evil Dead (1981) the original film
The new 2023 Evil Dead movie is a good stand-alone option, but its comparison with the original “Evil Dead” movie is inevitable.
So, to all the horror movie fans, I humbly suggest that watch the original too. Also, here is the trailer for the same.
The Evil Dead film synopsis: Gory comic horror tale about a couple who accidentally summon up an evil force when they venture to a remote log cabin in the woods. Forced to decapitate his possessed girlfriend, the man finds his escape blocked and, as night falls, he must battle not only the evil force and a killer hand, but his sweetheart's undead body as well.
We like the original “The Evil Dead (1981)” movie more, what about you all? Still, this latest (2023) version of the Evil Dead movie is worth a watch.
And if you like watching the Horror movies like these ones, then check out the Scream VI (2023) movie, too.
