Drag Me to Hell

Sam Raimi changed the horror business in 1981 with the now classic THE EVIL DEAD and almost thirty years later he's gone and changed it again. DRAG ME TO HELL is unique to the genre in that it's a "clean" chiller. No sex, minimal language, very little clean you could take the kids. Granted, they probably won't sleep for a month but you could take 'em! Hell, my date chickened out on it during the bloody trailers! Serious, up from the seat and out the door with an audible "nope, I can't do it"! In some ways she was right because Raimi grabs you by the throat within minutes and never lets go. It's an old cliche to compare a film to a roller coaster ride but this is exactly what DRAG ME TO HELL is. Imagine Disney's Haunted Mansion ride on crystal meth! DRAG ME TO HELL is also extremely funny and this is where Raimi shines as a film maker. He'll have you busting your gut with laughter and then smash you upside the head with a frying pan scare and then yank you back with another side splitter. It is for this very reason I recommend you see it in a ful theatre. There are points in this film where the audience is laughing and screaming at the same time, an interesting sound to say the least ans, once again, totally roller coaster. DRAG ME TO HELL is by far the best moview experience to date this year and woth every penny of the thirteen bucks it will cost you to see and I predict right now it will topple a blockbuster or two when it opens this weekend. Before ending this a special mention must be made of character actress Lorna Raver. Her work as Mrs. Ganush is superb and she will waltz into the horror hall of fame because of it.

I think it's great that "Anon" isn't jealous of the beautiful woman in Ink's life. But his woman don't want him seeing movies with other woman. Thank you very much.
