A new batch of very cool images from Sam Raimi’s return to sorta-low budget horror, “Drag me to Hell”. I’ve never seen a director delight more in punishing his actors than Sam Raimi, and it looks like he sure put alison Lohman through her paces. Bruce Campbell should have warn the little lass what she was getting into. The film opens later this month, but until them, get a load of these new shots from the flick. Can that old hag get any older or haggy? I think not.
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.
