Sam Raimi’s “Drag Me to Hell” Remains a Bloody B-Movie Delight
By Andrea Thompson
It was 2009, and some people were starting to forget a few things about Sam Raimi. He’d made his name in the horror genre with the Evil Dead movies, but he also branched out to other genres in the 90s, with the western The Quick and the Dead, the crime thriller A Simple Plan, and the romantic drama For Love of the Game. In the early 2000s, Raimi thrilled nerds once again (well, mostly) with the Spider-Man movies, which gave audiences a profitable, family-friendly superhero far before the Marvel Cinematic Universe rose to prominence. But if audiences forgot this was the same director who brought us some of cinema’s most hilariously disgusting horror, Raimi reminded us with the movie Drag Me to Hell, a delicious slice of wicked B-movie fun.
