This movie may have a silly ending but this movie has gross scenes in it and... just gross scenes in it with a demon old lady.

The return of the Raimis?

Director and Co-writer Sam Raimi returns too his horror-comedy roots only now with a bigger budget. The good news is most of Sami Raimi fans will be highly satisfied with "Drag Me to Hell". There is however, one very big disappointment: the ending. The movie's main character Christine goes through a great deal of pain and suffering thanks to the curse placed upon her in which she does everything possible to save herself. Sadly, the "twist" is too easily executed, although to it's credit, it might fool a few, but it is not strong enough nor shocking enough to really warrant the reason for the commonly labeled "silly ending". Another complaint is that some may find the characters a bit annoying and "moronic" and therefore some won't care what happens ...

"Drag" Is the Word all right!

Alison Lohmann plays Christine Brown, a loan officer who longs for the position of an assistant manager position. She is hoping to get a promotion, but faces competition from another, a male employee. She wants to convince her boss that she is "tough enough" to take on the responsibilities of the new position. Christine gets her chance to prove herself a tough decision maker when an old lady named Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) begs for a third extension to her overdue mortgage payment. Christine denies her the mortgage to seem more assertive and make a good impression to her boss Jim Jacks (David Paymer). But something's not right with the old Ganush crone, and after assaulting her in her car, Christine is cursed by the old woman to be sent to hell by demons within a few days. Now Christine, ...

"Drag Me To Hell" by Yojimbo

A young banker is cursed by an old gypsy woman and desperately tries to find a way to break the spell before she is consigned to the pit. Obviously owing much to the kinds of hokey horror compendium's produced by Hammer and the like, Drag Me To Hell is obviously Sam Raimi trying to return to his roots but this is no Evil Dead 2. It has a lot more in common with the likes of Poltergeist but Raimi's comic strip approach doesn't really sit well with that kind of earnest horror story and because of this it falls between two stools. It takes itself way too seriously to be fun but is too flip in its approach to be taken seriously and the flimsy plot makes it seem more like an extended episode of Creepshow than a feature. It certainly has its moments (I always enjoy a DIY midnight exhumation!) a...
