What's the verdict? Well, it will never be "The Evil Dead" but it certainly trys. It is hard to top a cult classic, especially when it is the first of its kind. Sam Raimi shocked us witless, with intense fright, in his first attempt at horror. I literally had nightmares for weeks afterwards. Where can you go from there? I think he did an adequate job with "Drag Me to Hell," put I expected more. Honestly, I was so pysched about his return to horror I thought he had a new masterpiece to release. This just isn't the case. "Drag Me to Hell" is not a masterpiece. But it IS a well made, semi-well written, generally campy movie that depends on the gross out more than the scare. In other words, I liked it, didn't love it. Not sorry I watched it but won't be buying the dvd. Anyone else?

From watching the movie I learned as with this recession; that banks are evil. And if you work for a bank make sure to be a fair and balanced loan officer. Otherwise you have three days before a llama or Mario Lemeaux will come for you with a goat and drag you to hell. And everyone knows Hell is in Canada and Peru.

I'm glad Sam Raimi returned to horror, & i loved Drag Me To Hell i think the gross out comedic elements work alongside the horror, thats always been Raimi's style. And not alot of filmmakers would of been able to pull that off mixing the two together. Both the over the top gross comedic parts work perfectly, they make you laugh & cringe at the same time. And the horror aspects work you cant say that you dident find it really dark and synister when you see her being dragged to Hell screaming i was watching it like "oh...my...god, thats horrible" & in the first like 2 minutes of the film you see a little boy being dragged to Hell and if that isnt evoke horror in someone i dunno what will. I think the reason why its soo synister is because the main character dident desurve to go to Hell atall, she was a genuinly nice & good person who even volunteers at the "puppy shelter" and she just got a big promotion and she was going to get proposed too aswell, and then........burning in Hell in brutal agony for all eternity. That ending really did evoke terror in me i mean the idea of going to Hell is pretty much the worst thing i can think of soo... that ending really did shock me aspecially justin longs reaction, where he's just watching in horror whilst still holding the button. And the end credits music that followed which really topped it off, that really synister violin that reminded me of like transilvanian folk music or something that song is called "Concerto To Hell" by the way, anyway...overall i loved it, RAIMI IS BACKKK ;D !!!
