Fresh: Is it as hilarious as the Evil Deads? Almost.
- Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, Friday, May 29, 2009
Fresh: This grosses you out but it also makes you laugh at how crazy it is.
- Ben Lyons, At the Movies, Monday, June 1, 2009
Fresh: It would be tempting to call Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell a budding cult classic, except its profitability and popularity may eclipse cult status.

img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif/img] It was made by the director of Spiderman and to be honest I wasn't surprised. It looked a lot like a mainstream horror flick. And I was proved right. Drag Me to Hell is nothing worth remembering, the idea much like the execution was highly average. I enthusiastically anticipated this film though because of the huge amounts of critic's that adored it and gave it nothing but praise. I'd be lying if I didn't say that I yawned a lot, and this was the main problem I had wih it. Not to say it wasn't entertaining at all. If you dont watch a lot of horror movie's and are a member of a mainstream audience im almost certain you'll enjoy it. The acting was absolutely brilliant and there were a couple times when I jumped. But very, very few. Just dont watch it with extremely high expectations like I did. Meh. It was alright, but it was just a bit rubbish.

Sam Raimi is trying so very hard to go back to his 80's old-school horror roots, but only thing that Drag Me to Hell confirms is that Raimi has lost touch as a director, and all he has to deliver here is lots of cheap scares and bad CGI. Stylistically this is close cousin to Evil Dead, but it lacks the creative craziness of it and wacko humor it had. It is so frustrating to see that Raimi definetly has a eye for wonderful images and all the potential to create something truly spooky, but he spoils it all with childish effects that are at the same time downright cheesy. I loved that eerie scene in the graveyard and those genuinenly creepy encounters with Lamia-demon in Christine's house, but all in all this is just a huge disappointment.
