Drag Me to Hell

Director: Sam Raimi
Year Released: 2009
Rating: 2.0

A bank employee (Alison Lohman) - who comes from a family of farmers and is in denial about it - tries to ascend the proverbial 'class scale' by dating her upper-crust boyfriend (Justin Long) and getting a promotion at work: for the latter, she denies a grizzled old woman a loan and that woman places a heinous curse on her. Amidst the dodgy CGI and purposefully clunky B-movie schlock elements there's a flimsy morality tale going on there, although it's needlessly cruel to assault and torment the Lohman character for the entirety of the movie. She clearly isn't a malevolent person, the old woman was already granted leniency by the bank in the past and there should be nothing wrong with trying to get a promotion if one feels one earns it. Since when did Raimi become a Leftist? Shouldn't Justin Long have gotten sucked into that hellhole too for owning an iPhone?
