Ginger Liu wrote this review 5 years and 6 months ago
Drag Me To Hell is the much anticipated horror movie from director Sam Raimi. Raimi’s unique talents brought him to global success with the Spider-Man franchise but what fans really know and love him for are the 1980’s and early 1990’sEvil Dead movies that mixed horror, gore, and comedy in equal measure. The Evil Dead, Evil Dead ll, and Army of Darkness are considered classics in their genre.
With a plot that’s strictly in the now, Drag Me To Hell tells the story of ambitious LA loan officer Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) and her boyfriend Clay Dalton (Justin Long). When the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) begs her for an extension on her home loan, Brown denies the extension in order to impress her boss. Mrs. Ganush’s house is repossessed and in turn she places a curse on the loan officer. Brown’s life soon becomes a living hell.
