Excerpt: Director and Co-writer Sam Raimi returns too his horror-comedy roots only now with a bigger budget. The good news is most of Sami Raimi fans will be highly satisfied with "Drag Me to Hell". There is however, one very big disappointment: the ending. The movie's main character Christine goes through a great deal of pain and suffering thanks to the curse placed upon her in which she does everything possible to save herself.
Summary: Sam Raimi makes a welcome return to horror with a fun and silly horror comedy that is reminiscent of Raimi's Evil Dead series. The film uses its simple premise to unleash a barrage of jump scares, creative visual set pieces, and macabre humor.

Summary: I honestly had low expectations for this PG-13 horror movie despite being directed by Sam Raimi. I watched the Unrated version and was pleasantly surprised. This movie is very watchable. When the movie started I was worried it might progress like the movie "thinner" but it quickly showed me that it had a story all its own. I recommend this if you can find it cheap enough.
Summary: From what I heard this was just a gross out movie so thats all I expected but it was way better then that.Definitely a good movie to watch on Halloween, A dark rainy night, or 3 in the morning
