Drag Me To Hell

Somewhere in between
Horror and a comedy.
I was dragged to Hell.

While Sam Raimi should be commended for creating a flick that uses humor to tell a frightening story, the combination just didn't work for me in this film. The effects were average, the story was predictable and the acting just okay.

The result: a movie that was neither scary or funny.

I enjoyed it somewhat. Sure it wasn't a laugh riot, but it's fun seeing a horror movie that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Raimi's oral fixation got a little disturbing after a while though.

Given the hype, I was expecting much better. I was happy for David Paymer getting a pay day, though.

Paul: I wanted to be scared. Mostly I was grossed out.

Hoyt: Paymer is a favorite of mine, too. He's fine in the film, but it's a payday gig.

This makes me glad that the niece has outgrown wanting to watch horror movies with me because she can watch them anywhere she wants.

It was kinda fun though wasn't it? A refreshing change from a gory slasher and a harking back to good old fashioned campfire stories.
