Will Evil Dead Rise be on Netflix? We explore where the movie can be watched with the highly anticipated horror coming to our screens. 

If you’re new to this franchise, you’re in for a freaky treat. New Line Cinema and Renaissance Pictures present the return of the iconic horror franchise with Evil Dead Rise.

This is the 2023 American supernatural horror film written and directed by Lee Cronin. In this 5th installment, they’re moving the action out of the woods and into the city as we follow the twisted story of two estranged sisters. 

First introduced to horror fanatics in the 1980s, the supernatural gore flick Evil Dead introduced us to the series protagonist Ash (Bruce Campbell), the infamous Book of the Dead. This gory splatter hit horrified audiences so much that some countries, including Finland and Singapore, banned the film due to its violence and gore.

In this fifth Evil Dead film, taking on the lead roles of the two sisters will be Alyssa Sutherland (The Devil Wears Prada) as Ellie and Lily Sullivan (Mental) as Beth. The story follows a road-weary Beth, who pays a long-awaited visit to her older sister Ellie, who raises three kids alone in a small LA apartment.

The sisters discover a mysterious book deep in the bowels of Ellie’s building, and as demons/zombies rise, Beth is now in a survival battle, playing a version of a mother she never imagined. 

What is the release date for Evil Dead Rise?

Horror-loving fans of Evil Dead don’t have too long to wait, as Evil Dead Rise will be released in cinemas on Friday, April 21, 2023.

Will Evil Dead Rise be on Netflix?

At this moment in time, Evil Dead Rise will not be available on Netflix. It will be shown in theatres and then released on HBO when it’s released for streaming. 

The film was initially set for a streaming-only release on HBO Max, but it was moved to a theatrical release as part of a restructuring plan for film distribution at Warner Bros.

Netflix does have the series Ash vs Evil Dead, which had a horde of fans before the show prematurely ended after its 3rd season. This is still available to watch on the streaming giant.

How can I watch Evil Dead Rise

The film is set to release in theatres globally on April 21, 2023. The official website for the movie states “Evil Dead Rise” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures and is set to open in theatres in North America on April 21, 2023, and internationally beginning April 19, 2023.”

What should I watch before Evil Dead Rise?

As this is the 5th film in the Evil Dead Instalments, I’d start by watching its predecessor films, which include, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness, Evil Dead, and now Evil Dead Rises.

If you’re into horror, and zombie gore films, I’d recommend The Cabin in the Woods, Drag Me to Hell, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
