Drag Me to Hell (2009)

A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point. (IMDb)

The horror here is a deliciously entertaining concoction of classic haunted house suspense (a rattling door!), supernatural torment (a shadowy hoofed demon!), and campy gross-out blood-and-guts shocks (mostly featuring a creepy old gypsy lady), backed by an epic stringed soundtrack. It’s not that scary, but it’s fun, and despite mediocre acting and an average plot, the film fully succeeds in its execution of the torturous terror-relief cycle right through to its awesome climax and conclusion.

6.7/10
