Polish viewers on the site Filmweb rated Evil Dead: Awakening 6.1/10while foreign viewers were a bit more gracious – on IMDb a rating of 6.7/10in turn on Rotten Tomatoes has a 76% success rate among viewers and much higher, at the level of 84% by reviewers.
Evil Dead: Awakening moves from the forest to the city. The plot tells the story of two sisters (played by Sutherland and Sullivan) who do not keep in contact with each other. Their meeting is interrupted by the appearance of demons that can take control over human bodies. Faced with the most horrific version of a family imaginable, the sisters are forced into a brutal fight for survival.
The comments under the trailer are mostly positive, although there are also criticisms. Despite this, it is a film that is unlikely to belong to the elite of the scariest productions in the world. So if you don’t like overly strong horror movies, then “Evil Dead: Awakening” may be just the production for you.
