Released in 1981, director Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead made a certain impression on horror fans. After a 10-year absence, in this 5th installment of the series, it is still created based on Sam Raimi’s tradition of horror and gore.

The movie is about Aunt Beth (played by Lily Sullivan) coming to her older sister Ellie’s apartment to visit her and her sister’s children. The sisters’ reunion is abruptly cut short by the discovery of a cryptic book deep within Ellie’s building. This leads to the emergence of demons that possess bodies, propelling Beth into a primal struggle for survival. Beth must try her best to protect the kids and at the same time, she must fight and save her sister’s body from the devil. 

Although the movie has soon received rave reviews from film critics, the overall content of the movie doesn’t hold anything particularly unique and rely heavily on numerous gory and violent scenes. However, if you’re a devoted fan of the genre and crave for intense horror, it’s worth immersing yourself in the experience.
