‘Evil Dead Rise’ Fights Stiff Competition At Box Office

by Thomas Tuna

The dead are clinging to life…barely.

Evil Dead Rise continued its slow slide down the domestic box office charts this weekend, placing fifth against formidable competition–including the debut of Fast X and the strength of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Super Mario Bros.

Still and all, in its fifth weekend, the latest (and most successful) chapter in the Evil Dead franchise earned a respectable $2.4 million from 2,170 theaters, bringing its domestic total to more than $64 million, according to a report on Deadline. The film had already eclipsed the $100-million mark globally.

Evil Dead Rise–from writer/director Lee Cronin–follows Beth (Lily Sullivan) when she visits her older sister Ellie (Alyssa Sutherland) in Los Angeles. But things take a horrific turn when the sisters discover a mysterious book deep in Ellie’s building–a book that unleashes a horde of demons and forces Beth to fight for her life.
