Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is on her way to having it all: a devoted boyfriend (Justin Long), a hard-earned job promotion, and a bright future. But when she’s forced to make a tough decision that evicts an elderly woman from her house, Christine becomes the victim of an evil curse. Now she has only three days to dissuade a dark spirit from stealing her soul before she is dragged to hell for an eternity of unthinkable torment. Director Sam Raimi (Spider-Man and The Evil Dead Trilogy) returns to the horror genre with a vengeance in the film that critics rave is “the most crazy, fun and terrifying horror movie in years!” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The dichotomies director Sam Raimi presents within that familiar genre are what make this such a kick.
Fresh: Playful and relentlessly scary.
Fresh: Truly, this is manna from hell.
Fresh: Drag Me to Hell is a sometimes funny and often startling horror movie. That is what it wants to be, and that is what it is.
I absolutely adored this movie! Saw it in theaters and even though it's only PG-13, it delivered on so many levels. If you're a fan of Sam Raimi's directing/writing styles then you'll enjoy this gem. There were a lot of classic scary movie scenes, great humor and all around FUN! Thank you Sam Raimi for creating yet another movie I have to get for my collection!
I saw this in theatres
It was so amazing. It's seriously like one of the best scary movies I have ever seen. The story is great and is full of unexpected twists like the uninvited. And it has terrifying parts throughout. I can't wait for it to be released.
It's just bad.
Simplistic writing. Terrible delivery. Excessive (in my opinion) product placement. This movie doesn't know what genre it wants to belong to and doesn't represent any of them very well. In short, it just doesn't tell its already limited story very well. I suggest passing on this one.
(I rented this from another source rather than from itunes because itunes does not yet offer it for rent. Why must itunes customers wait for rentals? It would seem that this would only encourage them to secure their rental viewing rights from other vendors. I'd rather get things here, to be honest but if I can't... well... there you have it.)
