Drag Me To Hell is great fun in a Haunted Mansion kind of way, a spook-house designed to make you jump with fright and squirm with tension.

A bit gross, a bit silly, and entirely entertaining.
June 30, 2015
A fun, frightening blend of terrified screams and disgusted, gut-wrench laughter that aims to recapture the genre-bending spirit of Raimi's pre-Spider-Man cult favorites like Evil Dead II.

Drag Me to Hell is a lark fitting snugly between the Saw flicks and silliness like Shaun of the Dead, making the gasps and laughter feel like something earned through ingenuity. Welcome back, Mr. Raimi. We've been lurking for you.

It's gleefully gruesome, dead funny and hella entertaining.

At times I hated it for pushing my buttons so relentlessly and with such obvious touches, but I can't deny it: I found it entertaining as hell.

It provides enough scare-jolts to have you squirming in your seat, plus enough laughs to leave you doubled over.

It all works. A return to Raimi's roots, a return to atmospheric horror, a return to fun filmmaking. It's probably the most fun I've had sitting in a darkened theater all year.

Hell is scary, but also wonderfully wacky.

It often feels like a nostalgic exercise for Raimi, a blood-spattered deep knee bend between Spiderman sequels.

Shamelessly resurrecting ancient horror standbys -- not just curses; seers and sťances, too -- Raimi clearly enjoys being allowed to return to the unruly instincts of his Evil Dead trilog

Was I having fun? My dears, I was not. I was simply longing -- longing! -- for it all to be over.

Drag Me To Hell offers lots of screams, gross-outs and laughs, often at the same time and always without one response ruining the other. That's a Sam Raimi trademark, developed in the first two Evil Dead movies and still fresh two decades later.

A frenetic, gross and darkly slapstick trip into Hell. Fans of Army Of Darkness era Raimi will love this.

Taking a break from directing Spider-Man blockbusters, Sam Raimi has come home to the gloriously tasteless, lowish-budget horror comedy he pioneered in The Evil Dead trilogy.

O, joy, a horror flick that's smart and funny, as well as cringeworthy for all the right reasons. And up to speed on the mortgage crisis too.

Spider-Man director Sam Raimi returns to his Evil Dead roots in this yucky, energetic and consistently entertaining fright movie.

The aptly titled Drag Me to Hell celebrates Sam Raimi's triumphant return to frightful and cheesy horror films that elicit as many nervous laughs as cringing shudders.
Corey Hall
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
August 4, 2013
Drag's a brief, blunt and utterly brilliant blast of humor, terror and wicked satire; a trifle that feels like triumph, a dashed-off flick that blows doors off big-budget competition, and is about as much fun as you can have at the multiplex.
Chris Stamm
Willamette Week

The legitimately pleasing touches of absurdity just aren't worth the struggle it takes to make it through long stretches of apathetic moviemaking.
