Personally I would have given the old broad the extension on her lone, but then again, I’m a nice guy that way. Just ask anybody. Unfortunately for our young spunky heroine in Sam Raimi’s “Drag me to Hell”, she’s forced to say No in order to nab that spiffy promotion she’s trying to keep the Asian dude from getting. Hey, a gal’s gotta do what a gal’s gotta do, right? As a result, our heroine is cursed and destined to burn in hell. Yeah, I might have gone with the loan extension.
Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charming boyfriend, professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) arrives at the bank to beg for an extension on her home loan. Should Christine follow her instincts and give the old woman a break? Or should she deny the extension to impress her boss, Mr. Jacks (David Paymer), and get a leg-up on a promotion? Christine fatefully chooses the latter, shaming Mrs. Ganush and dispossessing her of her home.
In retaliation, the old woman places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Haunted by an evil spirit and misunderstood by a skeptical boyfriend, she seeks the aid of seer Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) to save her soul from eternal damnation. To help the shattered Christine return her life to normal, the psychic sets her on a frantic course to reverse the spell. As evil forces close in, Christine must face the unthinkable: how far will she go to break free of the curse?
Starring Alison Lohman, Justin Long, and Lorna Raver, and directed by Sam Raimi.
