Drag Me to Hell

Director Sam Raimi may have reached global recognition with his Spider-Man franchise, but once upon a time he was a revered horror director and his Evil Dead series spawned many imitators. He returns back to his unholy roots for Drag Me to Hell, a horror about a loan officer (Alison Lohman) who, after evicting an old woman from her home, finds herself the new owner of a supernatural curse. She desperately tries to save her soul while the evil forces push her to breaking point.

The picture is single-mindedly devoted to pushing the audience's buttons, and who better than Raimi to do the honors?

Gaudy, ghoulish, this particular creepshow plugs into the EC Comics of the ’50s, laughing uproariously in the face of death. Forgettable, but groovy while it lasts.

Drag Me to Hell has a tonic playfulness that’s unabashedly retro, an indulgent return to Mr. Raimi’s goofy, gooey roots.

But really it's main point is shouting "boo!" at regular intervals which it does with a ghoulish glee all the way to its nasty twist of an ending. It all makes for a welcome return to Raimi's house of horrors.

With that fire in his belly, Raimi's Drag Me to Hell does everything we want a horror film to do: It is fearsomely scary, wickedly funny and diabolically gross.

Raimi's still very much up to his old tricks, retaining that deliriously over-the-top brand of Grand Guignol horror that he had abandoned by the mid-'90s in pursuit of other genres.

Thrilling and often hilarious, it’s good to see one of Hollywood’s most inventive directors fully reinvigorated. On this form, Spider-Man 4 should be a belter.

Drag Me to Hell is no "great" movie, but it's a helluva entertaining one. I loved it.
