Evil Dead Rise unleashes bone-chilling Terror

Lee Cronin’s latest film, Evil Dead Rise, is a fresh take on the classic horror franchise. Known for his previous works such as A Hole in the Ground and Ghost Train, Cronin has demonstrated his ability to create thrilling and suspenseful films. Evil Dead Rise is no exception.

The film revolves around a family, specifically a mother who is dealing with troublesome children. It all starts when the children find a book that they shouldn’t have touched. Despite the daughter’s warnings, the boys ignore her and read a backwards prayer, unleashing chaos and horror upon themselves.

I found myself jumping out of my skin right from the start of the movie. The effects used in the film were brilliant and kept me on the edge of my seat. The film was centred around family and sisterhood, which is a refreshing change of pace from the typical horror films that solely focus on gore and violence.

One particular aspect that stood out to me was the relationship between the sisters. There was a scene where one sister told the other to take her children and get out, but the other sister didn’t listen. This scene made me reflect on my own relationships with my family members and how I would react in a similar situation. The fact that the characters were relatable and realistic made the film more enjoyable.

Despite being a horror film, Evil Dead Rise wasn’t overly bloody or gory. Instead, it relied on suspense and jump scares to keep the audience engaged. Cronin executed the film in such a way that it was genuinely scary and didn’t rely on excessive gore to create the horror.

Overall, Lee Cronin’s Evil Dead Rise is a fantastic addition to the horror genre. With a fresh take on the classic franchise and impressive execution, this film is not one to be missed. Fans of thrillers and horror films will not be disappointed.
