Drag Me To Hell 2009, **1/2, Un-Rated Directors Cut


Starring: Justin Long, Alison Lohman, Lorna Raver


This is perfect for these economic times, however, I don’t think anyone will want to work as a loan officer after seeing this horror flick.


Most of us have seen the creepy trailer before.  Essentially, Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver, who has done many character actor parts in TV dramas and crime shows, “Bones,” “Boston Legal,” “CSI Las Vegas”) is in need of an extension on her payment, for the third time.  Christine Brown (Alison Lohman, “Matchstick Men,” “Flicka”) has to make the ultimate harsh decision of saying no, I’m Sorry, but we just can’t help you out this time. 


Brown is trying to becoming assistant manager at the bank, in competition with a new employee that just might get the spot.  Needless to say, sometimes doing the right thing can get you in a massive pickle you can’t get out of.  Mrs. Ganush tells her, “You shamed me” over and over again, and says some curse over Brown.


Over the next 3 days some of the most outlandish, bizarre events occur, and Brown and her boyfriend Clay (Justin Long, “Accepted,” “Jeepers Creepers,” “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story”) to and get help from a fortune teller.


I liked this movie because of its original storyline.  However, there were some really grotesque parts that some people might not be able to handle.  Some of the special effects were pretty goofy, (but you have to remember, Sam Raimi is the guy that brought us the classic horror/spoof/comedies – The Evil Dead movies) so this was kinda expected.


If you want to be spooked or watch a decent horror flick, get this one on your list to rent for Halloween night.
