I have said it once, and I’ll say it again. I don’t watch horror flicks in movie theaters. Not that I can’t appreciate them but because I end up wasting my money since most of the time I have my eyes closed. With all the good reviews “Drag Me to Hell” is receiving though I am seriously thinking about at least giving it a try. If I do end up missing more parts than I actually get to watch I can always catch it in DVD when it comes out.
“Drag Me to Hell” is receiving praise from all over for being a throwback in time when horror films managed to still be more fun to watch than just plain scary. That isn’t to say that director Sam Raimi didn’t make the film scary, at least if you’re a 10 year old or someone like me, but if you prefer the really truly disturbing horror flicks of late then this won’t be scary at all to you.
“Drag Me to Hell” was co-written by Sam and Ivan Raimi. It stars Alison Lohman who plays a bank officer who is cursed by an old woman (played by Lorna Raver) when she refuses to give the woman an extension of her delinquent mortgage. The movie is getting good reviews though not for its plot but for the really funny B-movie stunts and effects. Now that’s a horror film that I might be able to actually watch without regretting my decision the whole time I’m in the movie house.
