Drag Me to Hell

36 Ratings: 1.9
A 2009 horror film directed by Sam Raimi.

Touted as a return to Sam Raimi's horror-movie roots, Drag Me to Hell is indeed closer in spirit to the director's Evil Dead pictures than to his Spider-Man films. You got your gypsy gargoyles with rotted dentures, your upchucking corpses, your … see full wiki

I am a huge horror movie fan. I have been ever since I was little, but ever since all of these brand new horror flicks have come out, I have yet to see one that I can give five stars to. So let me start with the good on this movie, which honestly wasn't very much. The acting was pretty good, the picture was good, and the characters were somwhat interesting. The storyline was also interesting and they did throw in a good air of suspense and horror.     Now for the bad; there was …

Its this a Horror or Comedy
When I first saw the trailer for Drag me to Hell I was super excited as I've been (for a long while) looking for a horror movie to truly scare the pants off me. Ironically the last movie that really scared me (to the point i couldnt sleep for a month....LITERALLY) was the first Evil Dead.      Enter Christine a Lone Officer at a Bank who is competing for a position as Assistant Manager. One day an elderly woman comes in for an extention on her mortgage. Although it was …

***1/2 out of ****     I'm sure I'm not within the minority when I say that Sam Raimi needed to make a movie like "Drag Me to Hell". Since Raimi is the man who directed all three films in the successful and cult-treasured "Evil Dead" trilogy, his roots are with horror films. In the 2000's, he chose to distance himself when he made the "Spider Man" films, which I have no problem with, given how good the first two films in that series were. "Drag Me to Hell" released at just the …

What Pompted You to write a Review?   I am writing this review to let people know that I was not happy about this movie. I was very excited to see it when it came out and when I saw it, I said to myself, "Wow, what a complete waste of time"        How was the Plot, Acting, Direction?   The plot was good, they had a good idea that was poorly executed. Some of the acting was good but the lead female character was a huge disappointment. I feel …

What Prompted You to write a Review?   I want to keep people away from this movie.     How was the Plot, Acting, Direction?   This movie was pathetic.  I love Justin Long, but this is probably my least favorite movie with him in it.  The acting was terrible as was the plot.     Were You ENTERTAINED?   I was able to sit through the entire movie without turning it off, so I was somewhat entertained.  By the end, though, …

DRAG ME TO HELL The Minority Opinion
The reviews are in and Sam Raimi's DRAG ME TO HELL seems to be a resounding success--with everyone but me that is. I wanted so desperately to like this film because I fell in love with Raimi's work about 15 minutes into EVIL DEAD 2 which was my first experience with his goofy, super-kinetic style and like almost every horror fan I've been eagerly/anxiously awaiting his return to the genre. Unfortunately DRAG ME TO HELL simply isn't the film I was waiting for. I can understand …

I really liked the cinematography of this film. It had a very surreal feel, sometimes almost cartoonish like something you would see in a show like "Tales from the Cryptkeeper." It made the movie unique, and so I liked it.

First of All, for a "dissenting" opinion and a review of this review, please check out my friend QUEENBflix's review. This film never met her expectations and she wanted to see that Raimi has grown. Her review is a great comparison to Raimi's past work, may give you an idea of what you may NOT like about this film, that Raimi has faltered in her expectations, as well as a rebuttal to this review. However, if you just want to read details as to how this film plays out, may have seen the film …

Ever have that feeling that for the last ten years horror films have been repetitious series of clich├ęs and horrific actors taking absurd premises far too seriously? When was the last time you actually had fun watching a horror movie without it trying to work your lunch out of your stomach? Yeah, I'm pretty tired of modern horror films to. Luckily, a veteran of the genre has returned to teach us once more how to have fun with our horror once more. This man is of course, the one and only Sam Raimi! …

This was an experience that was both welcoming and disheartening. Any of Raimi's old tricks are back, but some of his new tricks are present too, much to my chagrin. A good friend informed me that the first fifteen minutes of the film are "epic", a word that is not to be used lightly. In this, I strongly disagree. While some of the later scenes were very intense and quite fun, the first fifteen minutes were largely a waste of film.   Some of Raimi's old tricks include: the return of the …
