I watched the trailer for Sam Raimi’s new return to horror, Drag Me to Hell, and I was encouraged. It didn’t rock my world, and there was a bit too much CGI for my taste, but it looked fun and crazy and gory and everything else I loved about the Evil Dead movies.
I am of the opinion that a big budget isn’t always a blessing, so I was a little worried that Raimi’s clout might have clouded his judgement. I worry no more.
There is something pretty amazing about this poster. From the tag line to the simplicity to the flames and the hands, this is classic Evil Dead style horror. And I now believe, 100% that this film will deliver. Opening weekend, in a crowd full of people who get it, I’m there.
