Very impressive.

This is the kind of shit we need in the horror genre.. not remake upon remake.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

Trailer looks good, if not somewhat generic in it's beats. I'm sure that won't be the case with the final film, though. I can't wait to see Raimi's trademark style applied to a new horror film. Count me in.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

I've heard from people who have seen the movie at advanced screenings that the trailer gives away FAR too much of the plot towards the end of the movie, so I'm avoiding it. Just an FYI for those who haven't watched it yet.

If the old woman has all these magical powers, certainly getting together enough money to pay her mortgage should be no issue.

It looks like Sam Raimi hooked up the old she-bitch witches from ARMY OF DARKNESS with a starring role in this movie. It looks entertaining.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

I don't know. She-Bitch is actually much better looking than the Gypsy woman.

This looks like a step-up in Raimi's career after Spider-Man 3 - and also, I instantly geek out to any trailer that uses that one piece from Stargate - but I have to admit I laughed my ass off at the shot of Adriana Barraza with her eyes widened and her palms in the air 'cause it seems to me that - once again - Raimi's unbridled fanboy-ism for Hellraiser has once again left its mark.

Looks good. If he pulls this off I might forgive him a little bit for Spidey3.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

Looks promising. If, indeed this gets a PG-13 rating it will hopefully continue the recent trend of giving the rating its balls back, much like The Dark Knight and (to a degree) Taken did.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

I'll pass. Nothing looks interesting at all about this one. Kinda surprised Raimi wasted his time with this.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

Couldn't resist. Watched the trailer. The second half flashes by so fast that I bet if I saw any major spoilers, I didn't notice and wont remember.

That said, looks like a whole lot of fun. The only bad thing is that I don't get much of an Evil Dead 2 (my favorite in the series) vibe that you all seem to be talking about. It reminds me of a more polished Evil Dead (which is not a bad thing).

Let's hope this does well enough to encourage studios to keep producing original horror films and not just remakes of varying quality.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

Sorry, but this movie looks retarded. Raimi fanatics, much like Bruce Campbell fanatics, are too quick to praise their pieces of shit.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

That's okay if you're not into, Lara Means. But you're too quick to judge. None of us are giving any opinion on the film itself because we haven't seen it. We're just saying that we like what's promised in the trailer and the positive reviews from those that have seen have us excited.

And Raimi "fanatics" don't praise all of his work. For Love Of The Game has many of his fans mixed and almost everyone (Raimi fans included) hates Spider-Man 3.

Drag Me To Hell is said to be like Evil Dead 2. In other words it'll be a gory and insane ride in horror/comedy territory. If that's not your cup of tea, that's okay. No need to piss on people who are into those kind of movies.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

Agreed RocShemp! Early word on this is that it's a great horror ride (ain't it cool news)! I enjoyed the first half of the trailer much more than the second half, but here's hoping that it's going to be a fun theater experience.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

Don't mean to shit on the parade here but the trailer did nothing for me.

Looks like the standard polished-up, mainstream hollywood horror flick. I don't care if Raimi's name is attached to it or not - as of right now, the trailer didn't do a damn thing for me.

Re: Drag Me To Hell - Sam Raimi

I was mixed about the trailer. Some really good scenes and then the scene where the denied loan starts it off made me laugh

Then again I'll definitely see it. Raimi behind the camera in a Horror film again has me sold.
