Evil Dead Rise is awesome! Just like the remake, it uses the familiar elements in fresh, inventive ways. It puts it’s cast of characters through hell, with fun setpieces and lots of gnarly blood & gore.
I loved it so much!

Had a bag of Evil dead Rise promo sweets, jelly eye balls, brains, stuff like that! Put 2 of the fake eye balls on mine and ran into the kids, took the jelly eyes, and ate them! Safe to say, my youngest is now scared for life!
