Evil Dead Rise OTT Information and Much More!

We bring excellent news for the fans of the Evil Dead series fans. The new release is called Evil Dead Rise.  In this post, you will read about the OTT release date, its storyline, cast and about the OTT platform it will be released.

Key takeaways:

  • The latest instalment of the Evil Dead franchise will surely leave you on the edge of your seat.
  • Previously, the movie was to be made directly available on HBO Max for digital streaming rather than the theatrical release. However, the decision was withdrawn.
  • Although, the global theatrical release happened on 15 March 2023. However, the US will see a theatrical release on 21 April 2023. It is why no official announcement has been made regarding its availability on any OTT platform and its subsequent release date.


If memory serves you right, you would remember that early films of the Evil Dead series were mostly shot in open forest and wood settings. It was in such settings where friends or kin struggled to survive the unimaginable horrors and violence unleashed by demonic entities. However, this time, you will get to see all this in a more urban neighbourhood in Los Angeles. So, do check your closets and do not stare too long into the mirror mounted on your wall.

The gruesome brutality, evil grins and dark humour still persist in this release, but the carefree twenty-something young individuals are now replaced by a single mother and her three children.


Ellie is a struggling single mother, taking care of her three children: Danny, Bridget and Kassie. They will be in an old building soon to be demolished. On a dark and stormy night, Beth who is Ellie’s sister takes some time off her schedule and visits Ellie in Los Angeles. That night, a cataclysmic earthquake causes a massive rupture in the parking lot which unveils an ancient tome, a record album and some relics.

Kids being kids, Danny inquisitively searches the hole and finds the unveiled book named The Book of the Dead. The record, once played, leads with a vocal chanting of the text from the book. With this, the seal of the veil was broken, causing the unleashing of a demon. The first victim of the demon is Ellie who was returning from the market. Possessed Ellie, heads upstairs, launching a frenzied assault on the family.

She wreaks havoc in the apartment building, while her sister and offspring struggle to survive and vanquish the horrid flesh-possessing demon that has beset them. Soon, Bridget falls prey to her demonic force and joins possessed Ellie in viciously attacking her kin.

Beth and Kassie somehow manage to escape the building, plunging down the elevator. However, they are again attacked in the parking lot with a chainsaw. In a turn of events, Beth takes hold of the chainsaw and pushes the demon into a wood chipper, shredding it to pieces.
