Face-Off: Drag Me to Hell vs Evil Dead remake
After all was said and done, I can't say I was completely pleased that I stuck around, but am still glad that I did. At least the filmmakers seemed to care about setting up some semblance of a creative plot as well as actually developed characters. I liked how nearly every high school kid in the flick had his or her own identity that stayed consistent throughout the running time. The bitchy slut, the noble quarterback, and the suppressed good girl (played by star, Catherine Georges, who is quite the hottie) were positive standouts.
The plot was alright, though there were some big similarities to EVIL DEAD and WISHMASTER that felt more like rip-offs than homages. There was a pretty good air of mystery in not exactly knowing where and when the shit would hit the fan. Nothing was the slightest bit scary, but something interesting must have been going on to keep me watching. I was curious to see how it would all end and if the freaky-deaky pirate radio station would tie into everything in some kind of creative way.
Sadly, the way things became tied up, or maybe not so tied up, left me feeling not fully satisfied. Events ran their course, yet without the sting of a snappy set up that the first half delivered. The finale felt kind of rushed and not all of the strangeness received a proper explanation. And considering all that was set up, more explanation was necessary. That's why I can't fully recommend this one. However, it is in no way as bad as most of the other low-budget horror stinkers out there.
