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.

This horror flick breathes the spirit of the 80s through and through, despite of taking place in our time. The whole making of the film is wonderfully old fashioned too, reminiscent of classics like "Poltergeist". We've already established in the Evil Dead films that director Raimi likes his characters to beat up old women, and takes it to a whole new level here. Protagonist Alison Lohman doesn't get away much better either, though. The list of things and fluids that end up in her mouth in this film is unheard of. The film is very entertaining, although not too horribly scary most of the time. The disgust effects are so over the top that you can't help but laugh, which was certainly intended, too. Unfortunately the ending falls short, mostly for being flat out predictable and too regular for the genre. Still, fans should get a kick out of the film.
