Drag Me to Hell :: movie review new 2009
This is a well crafted film with a well written story and has well acted scenes and characters. The use of wind as an effect is not new but well done and the music does a great job of punctuating the mood. Alison Lohman and Justin Long have a good chemistry and have a believable relationship that make you care about what happens to the characters in this film. Little hints about Christine’s past and her transformation into a young woman trying to reinvent herself, is interesting and make this film work on different levels. It’s nice that Sam Raimi has went back to his horror roots and with the help of his brother wrote a compelling script that is a watchable, scary and entertaining film.
