Sam Raimi, director of all three Spiderman films returns to the genre he is best known for with "Drag Me To Hell". Raimi's claim to fame began with the cult classic "The Evil Dead". This film deals with the tale of a young woman's desperate quest to break an evil curse.
Trailer Addict gives this description of the movies plot:
Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charming boyfriend, professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) arrives at the bank to beg for an extension on her home loan. Should Christine follow her instincts and give the old woman a break? Or should she deny the extension to impress her boss, Mr. Jacks (David Paymer), and get a leg-up on a promotion? Christine fatefully chooses the latter, shaming Mrs. Ganush and dispossessing her of her home.
In retaliation, the old woman places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Haunted by an evil spirit and misunderstood by a skeptical boyfriend, she seeks the aid of seer Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) to save her soul from eternal damnation. To help the shattered Christine return her life to normal, the psychic sets her on a frantic course to reverse the spell. As evil forces close in, Christine must face the unthinkable: how far will she go to break free of the curse?
The trailer shows it to be a good old fashioned horror story that slowly draws you in and then bashes you on the head. It stars Alison Lohman and David Paymer and will be released on May 29, 2009.
