Danny finds a book sealed in a tomb that cracked with the earthquake he takes the book back to his apartment and some old records. Unknowing that he was about to unlock an evil that is about to ravish their lives and change their future.

I went into this film very unsure of what I was about to watch as a huge fan of the series I was on the fence for sure. I watched it and was blown away that the story was done in a way that made sense to the series. The vibe of the film was dark and creepy in the best way. The acting was nailed perfectly in my humble opinion both Ellie and Lily are outstanding in their roles.  The rest of the cast was spot on also the whole just felt right for me. I give this one a 9 out of 10 the story the acting the vibe the cinematography. Lee did a hell of a job with this film and set it up for more films. I do wish we did have an Ash Williams cameo in the film of some sort but that’s just the fan in me. If you are unsure I say give it a shot it will not disappoint. Evil Dead Rise is out now be sure to check it out.
