Drag Me to Hell (2009)
Director: Sam Raimi
Main Stars: Alison Lohman, Justin Long, Ruth Livier, Lorna Raver, Bojana Novakovic
Storyline: A loan officer that evicts an elderly woman is now committed to a curse.
Review (Spoils): Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is a loans officer who has a lot on her plate. She is not sure of her relationship with her boyfriend and she is in constant competition at work. She starts to become a hard ass at work and denies an older woman and extension on her loan for her mortgage. Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) then places a curse on Christine for such a harsh act in which is being now haunted by a lamia demon.
We have smashed car windows, curses, shadow’s of goat heads, nightmares, body fluid, some dead cats and some demon action. This film is kind of lame on the special effects and the storyline is all over the place over the possession of a button and the curse. When it comes to the lamia I was expecting so much more from this film from that alone better yet from Sam Raimi.
Rating: This film could have been great and there was so much hype for it that it did disappoint for me. I’m a Sam Raimi fan but this fell flat for me when it comes to horror. Too bad as Alison Lohman was not bad in the film but really how scary can a lady with a blind eye be.
