Most horror movies are just a mash-up of lame clichés. Drag Me to Hell, Sam Raimi’s first directing effort since the Spider-Man trilogy, comes from a cliché that might just be old enough to seem fresh again. Poor old lady needs help, protagonist fails to help her, old lady turns out to be a demon and drags her to hell. Or maybe in the story I’m thinking of, the old lady turns out to be Jesus. Or was it a genie? F-ck, I can never remember keep this religious stuff straight.
The girl is Allison Lohman, yes that was Justin Long, and no, I have no idea what the hell that was. Opens May 29th.
