Drag Me to Hell 
I really enjoyed this old-fashioned creepy horror
3.5/4 stars

Woehaa, I got a flash back here for a minute. It reminded me of the old days when I used to hire VHS tapes from the local video store with totally unknown, strange, low budget horror movies. Everything you could see in those movies occurs in this flick ... the tilting filming at critical moments (yep also used in "Evil Dead"! The mother of all horror movies for me), the meat maggots, the whirling autumn leaves, the plopping eyes, puking a dead cat, the arm penetrating a mouth.... etc.

Some scenes are just slapstick material: the scene in the car where old Mrs. Ganush loses her false teeth and then lies drooling on the lower jaw of Christine ... magnificent. Death Mrs.Ganush tumbling out of her coffin in such a way that the putrid drool runs over Christine's her face and she starts gagging ... masterful. The fly that causes a terrible nosebleed ... irresistible.

Yes, I've seen it all before. All these scary moments are used a zillion times before. And the ending was so predictable. But nowadays a real horror/scary movie (small nuance) are sparse. It's always some found footage film and paranormal nonsense. "Drag Me to Hell" is a fresh wind in horror-land and a guarantee for a raunchy evening of shuddering and chuckling.

I really had to laugh when Rham Jas proposes to make an animal sacrifice after which Christine starts protesting in a bewildered way, saying : "I'm a vegetarian ... " Hehehehe priceless.

Conclusion: Every horror enthusiast should see this one. Pure nostalgia.
