Drag It on Home

by Tony Nigro

In retrospect, I was a little harsh in my initial judgment of Drag Me to Hell.  In comparing it to the rest of Sam Raimi’s horror work, particularly the Evil Dead series, I fell short of the bigger context, which is to say I didn’t recognize that this fun little genre piece is, in terms of quality, leagues beyond some other recent American fright films.  To begin with, it’s not a remake and it features exactly zero sexy vampires.  In conclusion, it gropes for social relevance and is just a lot of fun.  Somewhere in between, I’ll stick to my complaint about the underused Justin Long but let go of any dreams of Bruce Campbell.

Drag Me to Hell comes to DVD and Blu-Ray today.
