Drag Me To Hell!!!

on Jun 18, 2009

Drag me to hell... Sounded really scary... But I was really dissapointed after watching it yesterday... To be honest, it was no where near scary... In fact it was more like funny!!! By looking at the poster, you would definitely think that this movie is gonna make you piss in your pants but too bad that won't be happening...

This movie was about a girl name Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) who worked in a bank as a loan officer... One day this weird looking old lady name Mrs Ganush (Lorna Raver) came to her and asked for an extension as she don't have the money to pay for the loan... So Christine approached her boss and asked for his opinion... And the boss told her that it was a tough decision and let Christine to decide... Christine decided not to help her because she was fighting for the assistant manager position... Before that, the boss told her that an assistant manager needed to make tough decision... So this was where all the drama begins...

Mrs Ganush waited for Christine in the car park and she was attacked by Mrs Ganush... After a violent struggle, Mrs Ganush removed a button from Christine jacket and uses it to place a curse on Christine... After that, Mrs Ganush dissappeared leaving the cursed button with Christine... Later, Christine boyfriend Clay Dalton (Justin Long) takes Christine to a coffee shop to comfort her... On the way home, they pass by a fortune teller shop and Christine insist to go in... There they meet the fortune teller Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) who tells Christine that she was cursed...

That night, Christine was attacked by the dark spirit and she decided to consult Rham again... Rham told her that the "thing" that attacked her was actually a demon called the Lamia... Rham even told her that she will be tormented by the Lamia for 3 days before being dragged to hell to burn for eternity...

Thats all for the spoiler... Sounded scary??? Nah... Just plain funny... Watch it to believe it... Not really a good movie... I expected so much more... But too bad... They should categorize it as comedy cum horror movie instead!!!

Yeah, agree with u..i have watched it too and i think it's a bit similar to the scary movie, the only difference is it really quite scary when all of a sudden, that old lady appears..Orh, disgusting too, when that old lady lost her teeth n using her mouth biting Christine's ..Eeeewww, i can't stand that scene~

It mix with humour and throughout the movie, i dont think it's scary di, more like a comedy movie so reli disappointed with that...

yeah totally agree with you... haiz... should make the movie more realistic... in my opinion is really hard to mix scary and funny together...

i think they should stick it to scary all the way and make it more realistic just like "Exorcism Of Emily Rose"... Although "Exorcism Of Emily Rose" is also not really scary but at least it's so much more realistic in the way they film it...
