  • Drag Me to Hell

    2009. USA. Directed by Sam Raimi. Screenplay by Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi. With Alison Lohman, Lorna Raver, Justin Long. The Contenders, 2009 kicks off with the perfect Halloween trick: Sam Raimi’s uproariously terrifying Drag Me to Hell. Christine Brown (Lohman) is an ambitious young bank employee who learns a very hard lesson in generosity when she rejects poor Mrs. Ganush’s earnest (if a little slimy) request for a loan extension. Mrs. Ganush exacts a terrible revenge by placing the Gypsy curse of the Lamia on Christine—three full days of nightmarish hauntings, culminating in a one-way ticket to hell. As Christine’s torments grow progressively more menacing, Raimi uses every filmmaking trick he has learned since The Evil Dead (1981) to terrify the audience.
