Sam Raimi of Spiderman fame decided to present a horror genre movie which surprisingly is well scripted and executed at par with his Spiderman series. The pace of this movie is nicely structured and as the story progresses the unusual twist in the end makes this “Drag Me To Hell” an absolute spine-chiller. The movie which created lot of expectations for two reasons being Sam Raimi’s direction and for the fabulous trailer that created a stir amongst the movie watching audience.

Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) who is a well-mannered mortgage banker with an eye on her promotion is forced to take bold decisions to make herself qualified for the role is approached by a Gypsy woman Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) seeking extension of payment on her mortgage loan for a third time. Christine declines the loan for which the old woman creates a scene in her office and later in the parking lot attacks Christine and places a curse on her.

Then there is a continuous horror fest throughout  movie with lots of sound effects along with the other characters getting into the scheme of things which slowly culminates towards the climax.

The major difference between the run-of-the-mill horror movies and this one is the treatment given to the script and the choice of actors is simply amazing. This movie does not push you to take a walk to the popcorn counter to kill your boredom but instead you will be glued to your seat to look at what’s coming next.

The major difference in this movie is that the director has not opted for the conventional ending where human wins over evil nor for the ending which will indicate to the viewer that there is scope for a next edition in the same series that might be taken sometime in the future.

On the whole Drag Me To Hell will freak you to the maximum.
