Plot:
A group of young friends discover an ancient statue that unleashes an evil spirit. Once released the demon enslaves them to collect human blood so that it can come back to life and rule the world. It’s up to a detective, a priest, and a pizza boy to infiltrate the group’s sinister compound and banish the spirit from the Earth before it’s too late…

Release:
Initially available exclusively on Tubi TV for a limited time, The Evil Rises received a wide digital release across multiple platforms.

Reviews:
“This one was generally a pretty enjoyable effort. Among the brighter spot here is the fun way this goes about utilizing the body-hopping spirit possessing the group of friends at the center of the storyline […] laughably unconvincing blood-work being just colored water to a horrible CGI-altered demon figure that looks so cheesy it’s impossible to take its commands seriously.” Don’s World of Horror and Exploitation

” …just as it starts at a beach party, The Evil Rises comes full circle and finishes at a house party. It’s not quite as entertaining as the opener but it still manages to deliver some blood and boobs. I was hoping for more of a bloodbath but that seems to be beyond the film’s budget.” Voices from the Balcony
