“Drag Me to Hell” (2009)

After refusing to helm Spider Man 4 (a good choice, given Spidey 3’s current status as most recent really bad 3 movie, replacing Godfather III), Sam Raimi returned to his horror roots, but with a bigger budget, and the result was Drag Me To Hell, a solidly entertaining B movie. It’s a little bit funny, scary, campy and silly by turns, and full of gross-out effects. It does what it sets out to do, which isn’t high art. If you liked the Evil Dead movies, you’ll likely enjoy this, and appreciate seeing the Big Yellow Car again.

    I don’t dispute your opinion of Spider-Man 3, but as much as I hate to say it, I’m pretty sure that Raimi did direct and write it.

    Jeff, you’re right and I’ll edit the post to reflect that. It must be 4 that Raimi has bailed on, and I got them mixed up.
