The Basic Horror Franchise Roars Again To Bloody Life [SXSW 2023]

“Evil Lifeless Rise” is the sort of horror sequel that will get to have its (maggot-infested, vomit-encrusted) cake and eat it, too. By transferring the motion away from a cabin within the woods and to a crummy residence constructing in Los Angeles, it is free to twist out of the shackles of each entry that got here earlier than and make a clear break completely the unique trilogy’s characters (no Ash to be discovered right here, of us). On the similar time, it is aware of what works, breaking out acquainted beats so as to add spice right here and there, realizing that some issues simply work, and pretending in any other case can be silly. “Evil Lifeless Rise” loves being an “Evil Lifeless” film, nevertheless it’s not going to accept simply taking part in the best hits … though it is aware of these notes nicely.

Essentially the most unnerving facet of the movie is launched quick and livid: sexy school college students in a cabin are changed by a charmingly dysfunctional household unit, whose house is invaded by demonic forces when the mistaken e-book is opened and the mistaken incantation recited (cease doing that, folks). Quickly, it is mom in opposition to kids, kids in opposition to mom, and sibling in opposition to sibling because the flesh is torn asunder and family objects change into weapons (cheese grater, anybody?). No gentle edges right here, no beating across the bush — Cronin goes arduous quick and early. His film means enterprise, and he isn’t above letting a household destroy itself to make that clear.
