For the fans of horror: Sam Raimi’s 2009 “Drag me to hell” was actually not so bad, with great jump scares like old classic horror films, Sam Raimi does a terrific job bringing back the original scares of the horror genre. Even though the film was cheesy and had terrifying scenes that were actually laughable. “Drag me to Hell” is a joy ride that will make you always question the thoughts of the main character and if you’ve never heard of this film, then it’s a must see with an ending you’ll think about afterwards.
Do not believe the tomatoes! listen to the popcorn! we know the truth this movie isn't that good! Not bad. But not 90%
Poor Alison Lohman gets all sorts of things in her mouth in this one, none of them pleasant - well, aside from the bit where she's eating icecream. Beyond cheesy in places (Someone gets a frickin anvil dropped on their head like it was Looney Tunes), fairly entertaining, wouldn't say it was high cinema though.
There were some really effective elements, including the cast. However its ridiculous ending dragged it to hell.
After the bad experience of studio interference on Spiderman 3, director Sam Raimi returned to his horror roots with the gem that is Drag Me to Hell. Though The Evil Dead is what put Raimi "on the map," Drag Me to Hell is a far more polished work from an experienced and more technically accomplished director.
Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) works as a bank mortgage officer. She finds herself trying to just do the right thing but ends up foreclosing on a woman who can't pay the mortgage. Unfortunately for Christine, the woman is the movie archetype of an old gypsy who doesn't forgive easily.
Soon after, there's a violent assault, a car crash, crazy hallucinations, poltergeist activity, muddy corpses, a seance, levitation, and one demented, demon-possessed goat.
This is the type of horror film where a nosebleed isn't just a nosebleed, it's a geyser. It's a throwback to the old Tales of the Crypt comics where the number one rule is to be as over-the-top crazy as possible. In one very brief shot, for example, Christina hallucinates that her plate of food has something ... alive in it. One brief reaction shot from the plate's point-of-view shows a fork prop that is clearly two or three feet long. This is a scary movie, but it's a fun and very stylized comic book of a movie.
Genre films are usually not known for the best acting. But all actors here are great, in particular the under-appreciated Justin Long and the incomparable Adriana Barraza.
If you're not particularly a fan of horror films, this one may be too wild for you. But if you're a true horror fan... put this on your list right away. And you're welcome.
How is it remotely possible to have a horror film be so terrifying, it makes you LAUGH?!
This movie was awful! The acting was atrocious and the special effects hurt my eyes. I've never seen something so horribly edited. I wouldn't recommend this movie to ANYONE. It does not deserve the ratings it received.
As far as PG13 horror is concerned, I really liked this, Sam Raimi never disappoints when it comes to Horror great story, good effects... a must see!
Quite scary, satisfying ending. Very disturbing older woman, with her gypsy curses.
The movie was good at the beginning, it is surprising how the ending was
Not flattering and the effect wasn't that good
