For this year’s 31 Nights of Horror Challenge, the Day 7 prompt was From Hell. There are so many movies on this theme, but I had to choose Drag Me to Hell (2009) from the Sam Raimi factor alone. His style is all over this film, making it good fun!#31nightsofhorror day 7 prompt: From Hell--Drag Me to Hell (2009) Click To Tweet
Christine Brown is a loan officer at a bank but is worried about her lot in life. She competes with a competent colleague for an assistant manager position and isn’t too sure about her status with a boyfriend. Worried that her boss will think less of her if she shows weakness, she refuses a time extension on loan to an old woman, Mrs. Ganush, who now faces foreclosure and the loss of her house. In retaliation, the old woman places a curse on her, which, she subsequently learns, will result in her being taken to hell in a few days’ time. With the help of a psychic, she tries to rid herself of the demon but faces several hurdles in the attempt.
Our Thoughts on Drag Me to Hell
Sam Raimi returns to his b-movie roots. And boy, is it fun and entertaining! It is a tale ripe for a gory b-movie treatment – a gypsy curse is basically as cliche as it can be.. But it goes all out, there is gore galore, and every possible trope of a horror movie is used, usually quite creatively. It’s a treat for all of the “Evil dead” fans and has/will make many more people go and check those out too!
