Review by Paul Salfen
This is Paul Salfen with your KLAK Movie Minute. In theaters this weekend is Evil Dead Rise, another reboot in the popular horror franchise that continues to make itself fresh and comes back from the dead every so often. In this installment, a woman visits her older sister who is having a hard time living in a small apartment in the city with her 3 kids but when that old evil book is discovered in the basement, there’s a whole new set of problems and it’s a fight to survive with some relentless demons and an absolute bloodbath follows that involves chainsaws, limbs flying, eyes getting needles in them, and yes, even a cheese grater. If it sounds like too much for you, it probably is. But if you’re one of those adventurous horror movie fans or already a fan of the series, you’ll probably love it. Even though there’s no Ash, Sam Raimi is producing and not directing, and some things have changed, the spirit is the same and the chills and thrills are all still there. That’s it for this week. Join me next week and every week for another Movie Minute right here on 97.5 KLAK, AMFM Magazine, and RECRD.
