Currently available exclusively on Tubi TV for a limited time, The Evil Rises is set for a wide digital release across multiple platforms over the coming months.


” …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
