Playful and relentlessly scary.

Leave it to Sam Raimi to breathe some new life into the genre most closely associated with lame sequels and lifeless remakes.

After a certain point, the movie becomes our own cinematic damnation from which there is no escape.

In retrospect, I don't remember much about this film other than the gutpunch of the last scene ... but my, what a gutpunch it is.

This is horror directed with a light touch but delivered like a hammer blow to the head.

Drag Me to Hell is plenty frightening and the effects pass the gross-out test two times over. But this screenplay includes some signature comedic moments that play with the genre and its tired cliches to create something much more interesting.

Drag Me to Hell's PG-13 rating holds [Raimi] back from the all-out, blood-spraying gonzo insanity he reached with Evil Dead, but he still gets away with a surprising amount of gross-out gags.

There's a necessary coldness at its heart, and I'm honestly unsure whether it's a plus or a minus. I'm convinced, however, that this big inner chill is part of the reason why it's still creeping me out just a bit.

Raimi's return to Evil Dead territory is proof that, respectability be damned, he can still whip up a slapstick splatterfest -- albeit a PG-13 one -- when the mood strikes.

It could do with some more insanity. That's usually the only time it really feels alive. As it is only about half of Drag Me to Hell really hits that levels, but that's a lot more than we normally get.

When a film makes me smile this much (you can't see, but it's a big smile), for this long (about a week) you know it's a great one.

Director Sam Raimi returns to his Evil Dead roots for this tongue-in-cheek gorefest -- one part spooky chiller, one part campy chuckler.

Drag Me To Hell is a genre-buster; one of the funniest and most satisfying films of 2009, and quite simply a perfect horror film. It also has possibly the greatest final-reel shock since Carrie.

Raimi took the horror/comedy by the scruff of the neck in 1981 with his no-budget, roller-coaster of a possession film Evil Dead...and he brings his big bag of tricks to his much-anticipated return to horror, Drag Me To Hell.

Raimi should go slumming more often.

While few are going to accuse it of breaking new narrative ground, it proves one of the most satisfying horror films of recent years.

Sam Raimi returns to his horror roots in the unrelenting and cheerfully macabre spook tale.

Raimi mastered the art of the screeching, zombie hag in The Evil Dead, and 28 years and three Spider-Mans later, he's still got it.

Drag Me To Hell is the thrill ride Sam Raimi should be making year-on-year, not another cash cow hapless Spider-Man film.

Contemporary economic crisis provides interesting backdrop to otherwise simple and rather predictable horror movie plot.
