Sam Raimi co-writes and directs this supernatural horror. Ambitious young bank loan officer Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is approached by a mysterious old woman, Mrs Ganush (Lorna Raver), asking for an increase on her mortgage. In order to safeguard her promotion prospects and impress her boss, Christine denies her the loan. In retaliation, the old woman places a powerful curse on Christine, turning her life into a living hell. Haunted by an evil spirit and misunderstood by her sceptical boyfriend (Justin Long), she seeks the aid of psychic Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) to save her soul from eternal damnation. As evil forces close in, Christine must now face the unthinkable in order to break free of the curse...
After dedicating himself for the best part of a decade to the Spider-Man franchise, director Sam Raimi returned to the horror genre with tremendous style in 2009 with Drag Me To Hell. A film that fused together the ethos of the director’s earlier Evil Dead movies with the toolbox of tricks that he’s picked up since doing big blockbuster movies, it’s a fabulously fun and quite unnerving piece of cinema.
Raimi’s working on a lower budget than we’ve seen him with for some time with Drag Me To Hell, but not for the first time, he makes every buck count. Few directors know the horror genre as well as Raimi, and he generates tension and jumps from clever set-ups and expertly executed sequences. Plus, he’s little intention of following the horror movie template here, which adds to the sheer entertainment factor.
So what’s so special about the Blu-ray? The extras package isn’t particularly enticing, after all. Yet the picture quality and quite stunning sound mix lift the film notably. The latter in particular, as the sound stage is swamped by subtle noises and audible shocks works extremely well, and is perhaps the best among a few reasons for considering a high-def upgrade here. A strong movie, wonderfully presented. --Jon Foster

Drag Me To Hell has a really simple premise, that of a struggling young bank saleswoman who refuses a loan to a creepy old lady. Said old lady happens to be an evil gypsy who then casts a curse on the young woman. Cue her being chased by an evil demon and needing to reverse the curse before she's..... yep..... dragged to hell.
The film has all the fun and scares that you know from Raimi. It's a decadent horror that just keeps offering up more thrills, and insanity. Lead actress Alison Lohman does a wonderful job as the tormented Christine who's trying to succeed in her job, win over her boyfriends snooty family... and fend off a crazy demon gypsy lady who wants to destroy her, all at the same time.
If you want an entertaining horror this is it. No stuffy serious nonsense here.
The motto, An eye for an eye, no restitution, no escape. Someone has to pay with their live, and suffer in the beyond.
Just one problem the viewer actually has to believe in hell and heaven, ying and yang etc. Barring that it's worth a watch.
Watching it again had me look upon it a little more favourably, but it's still not as good as his much earlier work.
The main character had no personality and the ending was predictable.
The talking goat was funny though.
