Sam Raimi’s return to indie horror moviemaking has added three more names to the cast: Jessica Lucas (pictured, below), Lorna Raver and David Paymer. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucas, fresh from fleeing monsters in “Cloverfield”, will play the roommate and best friend of star Alison Lohman’s character, who according to the script is the unwitting recipient of a supernatural curse that threatens to, as the title suggest, drag her to hell. Don’t you hate it when that happens? Pick better friends, I say.
Raver plays Mrs. Ganush, a proud Eastern European woman with an old-world belief system who, when defied and humiliated, vengefully casts the curse. Paymer will play Mr. Jacks, Stephanie’s practical bank-manager boss.
Raimi plans to start production on the film in Los Angeles next month.
