Drag Me to Hell

Drag Me to Hell ★★★★★

[Unrated Director’s Cut]

Sam Raimi’s indictment of capitalism and how it’ll fuck over not only citizens, but also people who are employed by those same capitalistic systems—systems which cause people to drag others down with hopes they’ll eventually go higher up. That Raimi conveys this so effectively and thoughtfully within such a bizarre narrative is a testament to his greatness. Alison Lohman really should’ve been this generation’s Bruce Campbell; an all-time horror genre performance.

An absolute masterpiece. Might be my favorite Raimi.
