Drag Me To Hell

June 5th, 2009 by Potato

Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell is a horror movie in fine form. It was genuinely scary (mostly startling with a decent level of suspense), accomplished almost entirely through music, camera angles, and facial expressions. The man knows his craft.

I don’t have too much to criticize one way or the other, except to say…

Spoiler warning!

…that the old gypsy woman was really over-used, especially once she was dead. Ok, the first time she showed up in the bed it was a dream so it was ok, but the next few visions of her (such as in the shed) while the girl was awake were just getting silly; I would have preferred at that point if the Ilyma spirit took over as the boogeyman at that point.

    It looks awesome, but I’m too much of a chicken to see it.
