Where to watch Evil Dead Rise
Evil Dead Rise was released into cinemas worldwide on Friday, April 21, 2023, and the only place to watch the terror unfold this weekend will be in your local theater.
The loose sequel is being distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, which means Evil Dead Rise will eventually come to the streaming service, HBO Max.
Following the pattern of most movies before it, the horror will honor a 45 to 90-day window as a cinema exclusive before arriving on the aforementioned streaming platform, therefore, we can expect Evil Dead Rise to appear on HBO Max during the summer of 2023.
