INT: Sam Raimi!

May. 29, 2009by: JimmyO

Sam Raimi. Need I say more? Okay, sure the man did the SPIDER-MAN movies, and he also crafted some awesome little flicks like THE GIFT and A SIMPLE PLAN. But many a genre fan will never forget what he did to a mild mannered store clerk who finds himself battling demons and zeroing in on his cool factor. Yes, I am talking about Ash, and of course, THE EVIL DEAD franchise. And while he hasn't returned to that series yet, he does offer up something that will certainly remind fans why he is known for horror with DRAG ME TO HELL.

When I sat with him, we talked about the influences with his latest, and of course the earlier films. We talk briefly about another SPIDER MAN, with nothing really new to the story and of course, what is going on with Evil Dead... long story short, not a whole lot. But, DRAG ME TO HELL more than fills up my need for Raimi horror, and it is a pleasure to see him back. Do yourself a favor, and make sure you check out this original and damn groovy horror flick this weekend. It is absolutely worth your time.

I dont know

PG13 horror movies already dont do it for me (theres something about seeing scary movies with a group of preteens in the row in front of me. if its meant to be targeted for kids, its not my kind of horror movie), and im just not all that jazzed about this movie. i know its getting rave reviews, but it could just suffer from Indy 4/Tarantino syndrome (critics only say its good because of whose behind the film, even if its not that good).

i just have a feeling this is a rental for me, we'll

Awesome

Forget that its PG13, the movie was awesome, scary, and funny. If you love Evil Dead 2, you will love this movie. The fight scene in the car was the best part.

He was influenced by Jacques Tourneur's Curse of the Demon from 1957.

At first I wanted nothing to do with DM2H because of the PG13 rating and that lead actress but after positive reviews from old Raimi fans and watching a old clip of Evil Dead 2, I trust that Raimi can deliver. *raises up a fake chalice* To Sam Raimi, may you make us shit in our pants when we least expect it.

WTF!!!

I LOVE Sam Raimi! This is only a bad idea because THERE'S NO BRUCE CAMBELL??? How can there be no Bruce Cambell in Drag Me To Hell? Not even a cameo? A bit part? A really tiny bit part? I'm trying not to cry - but I'll still be seeing this this weekend;)
