Drag Me to Hell

Drag Me to Hell ★★★★

Hooptober 4.1 - Watch #33 - Raimi

If I had to level a criticism at Drag Me To Hell, it's that it's a hair over-reliant on jumpscares. Still, it's difficult to care when every single one is so fun! Raimi's manic energy feels like a revelation when you compare this to the often dry & humorless state of modern horror- this film is incredibly entertaining! So many great scenes in this one, but even if the highlights weren't as good, this'd still be all killer, no filler. Full of the reckless splatstick Raimi made his name on and slathered in cynicism, Drag Me To Hell is a real spookathon for sure.
