While some of us were hoping Peter Jackson would take the $500 quadrillion he made from the Lord of the Rings decade and funnel it into some radical special effects splatter-comedy fare, he ended up getting distracted by a CGI gorilla and apparently just can't quit those damned Hobbits!
Coming off of a Spider Man decade, some of the same fan desires were placed at the feet of Sam Raimi. And while it looks like he might be going back to Spider Man for at least a fourth time, he was able to sneak in something called Drag Me To Hell.
I'm excited, and I'm glad they ended up with Alison Lohman in the lead instead of Ellen Page. Nothing against Page, but I like Lohman better. Oh, and Sage Stallone is in it!
Here's the plot as described by Worstpreviews :
In "Drag Me to Hell," an unsuspecting young woman (Lohman) becomes the recipient of a supernatural curse cast upon her by an older Eastern European woman who was defied and humiliated by others.
Lohman plays a loan officer who won't give one to an old lady (Lorna Raver) and gets hexed for her heartlessness.
Kind of a fitting plot for our current credit crisis, huh? But can you blame Lohman? I wouldn't give a loan to a woman that looked like that. I mean look at her grill! If she can't take care of her teeth then she sure as hell ain't paying back a loan.
