Drag Me to Hell

Rated PG-13 99 minutes 2009

After directing three Spider-Man movies, Sam Raimi makes a masterful return to the horror genre, though the crazed kineticism of his Evil Dead trilogy is replaced here by a fable of guilt, shame, and insecurity (2009). Soulful Alison Lohman plays a loan officer trying to get ahead at work so she can impress the snooty parents of her ardent sweetheart (Justin Long); prodded by her boss (David Paymer), she forecloses on the mortgage of an awful old crone (Lorna Raver), who retaliates by saddling her with a demonic curse. The biggest howls involve the delicate heroine helplessly ingesting or inhaling bugs, worms, and bile—physical equivalents of her destructive emotions—and Raimi ends the story with the sort of black punch line that's become his signature.
