Sam Raimi rides again

So, Drag me to hell has hit theaters here in Cheese-country, or rather, in the major cities and any places where the cinema isn't shit. Well, seeing as the DVD release is further away still, I'm left with mumbling about my expectations in my own little corner of the internet, a.k.a the Slow zombie movie blog.

Well, Sam Raimi, what to say about Sam Raimi, except he has changed a lot. I mean, his Evil Dead movies were insane. Maybe not art, but made with the indie filmmakers insane determination and the horror fans morbid insanity, fun times, maybe except a certain dendrophilic scene in the first one, further explanation is unneccesary, and probably unwanted.

Now, as far as Raimis career after Evil Dead, there hasn't' been all that much to talk about except for his recent bout with the Spider-Man movies. The first two were decent, not fantastic, but good super hero fun. As for the third, well, I haven't seen it, but the little I have seen... well, I'll pass it off as Raimi taking a hit of coffee too much... or several too few. Anyway, he's comming back to horror with Drag Me To Hell, and that could be a good thing. Emphasis on could.

The plot seems kinda generic, although slightly b-movie-esque, which can be a good thing if Raimi remember what he used to do before choreographing emo-spidey. I really don't know what to expect, although the reviews so far seem to be good. I remain cautiously optimistic.
