A high-rise residential complex buried beneath a cursed 100-year-old bank is split open by an earthquake. Unknowingly calling forth demonic spirits, a teenager starts reading the Book of the Dead and plays the record he stole from the vault. How long will the Deadite last his family?

The title card’s pre-credits sequence, which features severed heads, severed scalps, and a menacing figure emerging from a lake, will astound viewers. The movie shifts to an urban high-rise in Los Angeles after giving the nod to the standard horror franchise setup created by Sam Raimi. And as a result, you get a solo book of Evil Dead. The plot involves a single mother named Ellie and her kids, including her estranged sister Beth, grappling with an unplanned pregnancy.


The film deals with demonic possession and the frantic struggle to survive quickly. The blood and brutality in writer-director Lee Cronin’s film are much more brutal than in Alvarez’s. Even the strongest person’s stomach would turn at the slaughter, decaying makeup, severed limbs, close-up shots of violence, and retching.

One would turn their face away in horror because everything is frighteningly genuine. Significant practical effects, special effects, and outré camerawork are constantly used here. In a scene captured through a peephole, one of the kids turns into a demon and eats a wine glass.

As a loving mother and sister, Alyssa Sutherland excels. But despite her jerky movements and scary faces, she excels at the possession scenes. The stark contrast is uncannily ideal. Lily Sullivan, a guitarist frequently criticized for being a groupie, and Gabrielle Echols have strong performances.

With a running time of 99 minutes, the film moves quickly and never lets up. No matter how illogical it is that you know it is, the filming is alarmingly actual, which provides credibility, and that is the genius of it all. However, paying attention to the narrative’s lack of substance is necessary. After a while, the constant blood and gore get boring, and you want some relief in the shape of plot content.

Rating: 3/5

New viewers can join the bandwagon and have a context because the plot and the setting have little to do with the preceding chapters. Dedicated Gorefest lovers will revel at this one, but you should stay away if gore and disgusting scenes are not your things. This information led to a rating of three out of five stars.

Lee Cronin is the film’s director. Producer Rob Tapert is involved. Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan play the primary roles in the movie, and notable supporting players Mia Challis, Nell Fisher, and Morgan Davies round out the cast. The 21st of April saw its release. It will soon be available on OTT.
