Drag Me to Hell

H went to help out at a birthday party today so J & I thought we would make the most of our time and watch the new Sam Raimi movie, Drag Me To Hell. It was fun to watch with moments that were a bit over the top and others that made the audience jump. I wouldn't say it was a blockbuster hit or of the same caliber of Evil Dead but it did its job for me which was to entertain and get me to escape for 98 minutes.

The movie in a nutshell: Movie opens with a supernatural scene set in Pasadena where a child exemplifies the title of the film. Next scene cuts to a young woman, Christine Brown (Christine Lohman), a loan officer, who denies an extension to an old woman, Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver). Old woman seems to put a curse on Brown which materializes after Ganush's death. Brown tries to get rid of the curse with the help of a local clairvoyant. More supernatural mayhem ensues.
