Evil Dead Rise

Autumn and I went to the very first showing of Evil Dead Rise on opening night. After finally realizing Autumn is as big a horror hound as I am, we’ve watched all sorts of movies together at the theater. Well, horror movies…and Titanic, which Autumn wanted to see on the big screen during its 25th-anniversary run.

We always have fun together, and this was no exception. From the large popcorn with extra butter we barely made a dent in, to all the “ews” we whispered to each other during the movie, it was a memorable night.

And, surprisingly, we both loved the movie. While it had very little of Sam Raimi’s signature humor, the premise worked, and I thought many of the gore scenes were genuinely creative. Though, admittedly, from a mother’s perspective, it was hard to watch. And hey, there was even a character named ‘Bridget!’

Even better, I woke up this morning to find the star of the film, Alyssa Sutherland, had followed me on Twitter. 😉

Let me know what you thought of the movie! Sound off in the comments, and have a great possessed weekend, everyone!

  1. I really enjoyed it. It was pretty low budget all things considered, but I thought they did a really good job. Love the genre and looking forward too the festivities in Brownsville!
