Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Its been 17 years since Sam Raimi last dabbled in the horror genre, but now he's back and better than ever. Drag Me to Hell, his own throwback to the classic Raimi days of horror, hits theaters everywhere today. But is it any good? Has he lost his touch over the years working on Spider-Man? Or is it the most refreshing, original, and entertaining horror movie of the last few years? Is it a true throwback or just something entirely new? Does it even work well without Bruce Campbell in the lead? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Drag Me to Hell!
To fuel the fire, I really enjoyed Drag Me to Hell. It's just some down 'n dirty, Sam Raimi horror. Its got some great scenes and hilariously scary moments that are best experienced with an audience. But besides that, it's got some weak parts, mainly the actors (I didn't like Justin Long or Alison Lohman) and the story. It's not one of my favorite Raimi flicks, I prefer either of the Evil Dead movies or Army of Darkness more, but it's good to see him venturing back to his horror roots, even if it's just for one movie. If you're looking to get away from all the big-budget CGI blockbusters this summer, Drag Me to Hell is a great little escape.
What did you think of Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell? Best or worst horror movie this year?
