PG-13 Horror…

So, I decided to rewatch one I hadn’t seen in ages, Drag me to Hell. I’ve been a fan of the Sam Raimi’s work for a while, and this definitely has feel of his other work. It really reminds me of the Evil Dead films. The gore is gross and over the top; the vomiting of bile, the toothless gnawing, the popping eyeballs, all of it. It’s somehow far tamer than I remembered. There’s a few fun scenes, but also some that remind me of loony tunes. Like the anvil falling on her head in the garage. The levitation during the seance is pretty great, and the final scene with the rail road tracks is just perfect. But the scene with the flooding grave… It was just a little too silly.
