Drag Me To Hell Movie Review


Drag Me To Hell Movie Review

Well, we waited a long time for Sam Raimi to do another horror movie. And well. Maybe he should've called one Mr. Campbell and made Evil Dead 4. God, I was fired up for this. About 3 months ago. And then as time passed I started getting this nervous feeling that this was going to be some water downed supernatural horror movie. And it was. This followed a young bank loan officer played by Alison Lohman. Basically an old gyspy woman came in to the bank for a loan extension. And Alison is bucking up for a promotion so she refuses due to her manager saying she can not make tough decisions. Well, the gyspy woman has a sense of anger and curses the young woman's huh. Button. And gives it back to her. Well, from there all kinds of wanna be scares take place. I am open about the fact that I do not care for supernatural horror. However, some good ones have been done. Evil Dead 2. Amityville Horror. Exorcist. And usually anything to do with actual hell is creepy. That being said. Some of the scenes just came across as cheesy. The anvil to the head seemed a little cartoonish in a Wiley E. Coyote sort of way. Justin Long was good as always but, he can do much better. Think we might have been better off if Long was the one in danger. The ending I have to admit was predictable but, pretty good. So it was not all lost. I guess maybe it would have been hard to live up to the expectations of most Raimi fans. If your looking for something to just floor you in this then you will be disappointed. I would like like to see Raimi take a run at a slasher flick. Some how I think he might be able to write something twisted. But, in a year thats seen Friday the 13th, Last House on the Left, My Bloody Valentine 3D, Splinter, and Dead Snow. This would be basically my 6th best horror movie of the year out of those choices. And we have not even made H2 or The Final Destination. So yikes. And I am not sure it would even make the top 10 by the end of the year. There has been some serious great horror indy horror movies in the last few months. As Dead Snow was certainly along the lines of something that would've been great for Raimi's comeback. Sadly, you will not see anything of that quality or fun with Drag Me To Hell. Guess, it did Drag Me Through Hell for a hour and a half. 2.0 out of 5.0 axes. 1.0 for Justin Long. 1.0 for the ending. Unfortunately, it takes more than 10 good minutes to earn a better score from me.
