I heard a lot of critics who praised this movie. Too bad I had to take the minority point of view. "Drag Me to Hell," has some good scary moments, but the film went down the same path of buckets of gore and loud special effect noises. At times I had to cover my ears. Alison Lohman plays a loan officer who refuse a extension to a old woman who put a curse on her. I don't know whom I feel sorry for the most the loan officer and all the scary loud noises or the old woman who was put out of her home. I wish I could have like this movie, but I can't. After Lohman's cat was murdered for not intended reason, my yes recommendation died with it.
If you enjoyed Sam Raimi's Evil Dead 2 this is the movie you have been waiting for! It doesn't get any better than a gypsy curse.
Raimi uses anticipation with effortless skill to deliver those great jump moments we all love. The sight gags are wonderfully over the top in such a way that you find yourself equally disgusted while laughing at the same time. PURE fun from begining to end!
I had forgoten this was only rated PG-13...but that only goes to show you that one can deliver a very satisfying horror flick without nudity, profanity or graphic displays of torture. Who knew? Raimi is a master at this genre and needs to return to it more often!
This is Sam Raimi having fun, making a scary, fun movie. Its not as good as Evil Dead 2, but the movie is along the same lines, as far as tone goes. Its a very good, very fun horror movie.
