Poor Alison Lohman should cheer up. Sure, Sam Raimi probably put her through all kinds of hell for her new movie “Drag me to Hell” (Bruce Campbell will tell you that ol Sammie gets a bit of a sick thrill out of torturing his stars on set), but even if she never stars in another movie for the rest of her life (which is doubtful), she’ll still be able to live on the “Drag me to Hell” role by appearing at horror conventions for years to come. That’s something, right? Okay, maybe not so much, but it’s something to keep in mind. Anyhoo, here are new batches of images from Sam Raimi’s “Drag me to Hell”, which is opening later next month.
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 Justin Long, Alison Lohman, Jessica Lucas, David Paymer, Reggie Lee, Fernanda Romero, Bonnie Aarons, Joanne Baron, Alex Veadov, and directed by Sam Raimi.
