Drag Me to Hell rollicked out of the netherworld in 2009, marking writer/director of Evil Dead fame Sam Raimi’s return to the horror genre. Though nowadays he’s quite busy writing/directing the series “Ash vs Evil Dead” on Starz, at the time he was fresh off of directing a trilogy of Spider-man movies. Raimi came back to horror in full force with this wild, darkly humorous film. This year, on February 13, Drag Me to Hell is being released in the Ultimate Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray from Scream Factory.
The movie, directed by Raimi and written 10 years before by him and his brother Ivan, follows mild-mannered loan officer Christine Brown (Alison Lohman of Officer Downe, White Oleander). Though sweetly sympathetic to customer Romani woman Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver), in an attempt to prove she can make the “tough decisions” at work, she denies her request for an extension of her mortgage payment and effectively evicts her. This proves to be a HUGE mistake, as Christine is cursed to an eternity of torment and spends a miserable three days trying to break the curse with help from her boyfriend Clay (Justin Long, Tusk).
