I am not a big fan of Horror, but I can get sucked into a film if it is done well. Torture Porn, and repetitive slasher flicks don’t do much for me, but supernatural stuff and that hopeless fear that you cannot do anything to stop it just freak me out. So Sam Raimi’s latest effort Drag Me to Hell looks like it just might have that in spades.
The film tells the story of Christine Brown (Alison Lohman), an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charming boyfriend, Professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) enters their lives…and everything begins to unravel.
When her loan is denied and she loses her house, the shamed Mrs. Ganush places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Christine is tortured and desperate to have her old life back, so she sets on a quest to reverse the spell. But as evil forces close in and threaten to drag her deep into hell, Christine must face the unthinkable: how far will she go to break free of the curse?
