  1. After I watched this film, I was pretty much upset.

    I didn’t expect watching movies like Omen. A serious horror.

    But this one doesn’t have anything inside. Not like Evil Dead, this one losts it’s way from the very beginning.

    Also I didn’t find a single reason why I should like the actress. She is just faceless.

    Also the result is pretty easy to figure from the very beginning.

    I hate to say this but, Sam, stop pretending to be an independent horror film director anymore. You lost your own color!

  2. My wife and I walked out of this piece of crap about an hour into it. This was right after Alison Lohman does something horrible to her cat. I am disappointed in Sam Raimi. He should work on Spiderman 4 or get back together with Bruce Cambell and make a good movie. I had to give it a star but it does not deserve even half a star.

  3. This movie was a waste of money. It is not scary at all, which from the preview was expected. There is nothing but bad attempts of trying to make you laugh. If I had known what this movie was like I would of never of paid for a ticket. No laughs, no jumps just a waste of time. I rather sit and watch something as bad as The Spirit then watch this ever again.

  4. Everything about this movie was terrible. The makeup was done by a third grader. The story line lack one. Only thing scary about the movie was the acting and the only good thing about the movie is that I was the only one in the theater so no one knew I wasted my money on this waste of good film.

  5. I’m get right to the point. This is a blatant rip-off of a terrific horror film called Curse of the Demon (also released as Night of the Demon), which was based upon the classic story The Casting of the Runes. Some might call it an homage, but that’s ridiculous. It actually smears the original, which was a taught thriller about the possibility of occult forces and mankind’s inability to control them — with a central character based on Aleister Crowley, the famed British “magus.” If you’re going to make a farce — and Drag Me to Hell is certainly that — don’t destroy an old film in the process, and probably prevent the possibility of a serious remake of that classic. (Curse of the Demon could stand a remake, too. Studios looking to cash in — when aren’t they? — forced the inclusion of a hideously fake looking demon into the movie to generate teen interest.)

    The film is entertaining in a silly way, but the the acting ranges from passably flat (Justin Long) to tone deaf awful (Alison Lohman), who has pretty brown eyes and that’s about it. There is an old gypsy crone who is enjoyably disgusting, but it’s a pretty sad statement when the best moments in the film involve her removing her dentures and getting her eye stapled shut with a Swingline. Could have done without the guy vomiting a fake looking kitten. When a moment like that isn’t even funny, you know Raimi’s off his stride. Bad material will do that.

    There is a “twist” ending that only a dullard wouldn’t see coming a mile away in a silly scene that transparently manufactured to generate it. And there are lots and lots of throwaways, including parents who have dinner and are never seen again.

    I liked Evil Dead 2. I even liked Army of Darkness. A lot. This fails to capture the gleeful, over-the-top fun of those films and the acting doesn’t even come close.

    Go if you’re okay with rewarding a rip-off. But, this lightweight fare is diverting, but quickly digested and soon forgotten.
