You would have loved the ending more.

I've only watched the unrated cut (twice), so what part wasn't in the theatrical?

Also, grue?

I think the only difference in the unrated cut was:

Spoiler:
An additional shot right before Christine buries her cat, where she brings the knife down on her cat (off-camera), resulting in a whole lot of blood splatter.


I didn't notice anything else, myself.

It's not even an additional shot, it's a replacement shot. In the theatrical, there's a shot of the cat sitting in a laundry basket with Christine's shadow overwhelming it, which is removed (a shot of the front of the house might be gone too). Unrated is 9s shorter.

I think the very beginning of the replacement shot is also used in the trailer as well, somewhere around where they feature bits from the seance.

The aforementioned
Spoiler:
cat killing scene
and also, when
Spoiler:
the anvil is dropped on Mrs. Ganush's head in the garage, there is noticeably more eyeball gore and innards that hit Christine in the face.

I agree. Worth seeing but nothing I need to see again.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

I rented this during Halloween (along with The Mist and Teeth ). I just thought it was ok. Some cool moments thanks to a creepy looking old woman, and some requisite Raimi slap-stick type gore/horror, but a fairly predictable last 15 minutes with the button. It doesn't help that it's hard for me to take Justin Long seriously

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

I guess this film is polarizing judging by reviews and comments. Finally watched it with my wife (who's not a fan of blood) and we LOVED it. I mean, I gave it a 9 out of 10 at imdb. Just loved everything about it and thought it achieved everything it intended to do. More than anything, we just thought it was entirely entertaining from the beginning to the end.

I don't think your honest vote means much at IMDB. It's...IMDB.

That wasn't really the point. More so that I want to punch Justin Long in the face for the stupid Mac commercials.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

They're showing this on USA, first time I've seen it in a while -- actually like it much better now knowing how silly and goofy it is.

That said the sound design really is phenomenal in this movie.
