A Cinematic Snapshot

Evil Dead Rise” has been a monstrous return to form for the franchise, earning rave reviews and slaying at the box office. And just in time for your Halloween horror binge, the film is getting its very own 4K steelbook. Exclusively up for grabs on Best Buy’s online store, the steelbook is equal parts art and terror.

For those who had their eyes peeled, this stateside steelbook is essentially a twin to its international version that debuted alongside the film’s regular 4K and Blu-ray editions back in June. Only now has this ghastly masterpiece crossed over to American soil. Its design is a twisted palette of deep red and oxidized copper, featuring Ellie, the lead Deadite played by Alyssa Sutherland, in a menacing off-screen pointing pose. And let’s not forget the notorious cheese grater, displayed on the back and inside of the steelbook, standing upright as if it’s the ill-fated high-rise apartment from the movie itself. While the release will include 4K, Blu-ray, and digital formats, it’s still a mystery whether any bonus features will tag along—something that was conspicuously absent in earlier editions.

‘Evil Dead Rise’ Elevates the Horror of Deadites to Spine-Tingling New Levels

What sets “Evil Dead Rise” apart is its flawless melding of urban landscapes with the time-honored Evil Dead formula. Adding fresh meat—ahem—characters to the horror buffet, the movie introduced fans to a whole new ensemble worth losing sleep over. The narrative hinges on the blood-drenched sisterly relationship between Beth (played by Lily Sullivan) and Ellie, and for the first time in the franchise’s history, children are thrown into the horror mix, injecting a novel layer of fright to the Evil Dead universe. The magic potion of Lee Cronin’s direction, combined with spine-chilling performances from Sutherland and Sullivan, made the film an experience of a lifetime, harmonizing the visceral horror of 2013’s “Evil Dead” with the campy delights of the original trilogy. What further darkens the tone is the unsettling focus on themes related to motherhood.
