Drag Me to Hell (2009)

()

Horror, Thriller |

Drag Me to Hell is a American supernatural horror film co-written and directed by Sam Raimi. The plot, written with his older brother Ivan, focuses on a loan officer, who, because she has to prove to her boss that she can make the “hard decisions”, chooses not to extend an elderly woman’s mortgage. In retaliation, the woman places a curse on the loan officer that, after three days of escalating torment, will plunge her into the depths of Hell to burn for eternity.

Raimi wrote Drag Me to Hell with his brother, Ivan, before working on the Spider-Man trilogy. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was released to critical acclaim. It was also a box office success, grossing over $90 million worldwide.

In 1969 Pasadena, a Hispanic couple seeks the aid of a young medium named Shaun San Dena, saying their son is ill and hears evil voices after stealing a silver necklace from a gypsy wagon, despite trying to return it. San Dena carries out a séance, but an unseen force attacks them and drags the boy to Hell. San Dena vows to fight the demon again one day.

In present-day Los Angeles, bank loan officer Christine Brown vies for a promotion with conniving Stu Rubin. Her boss advises her to demonstrate tough decision-making. Sylvia Ganush, an elderly and disheveled European gypsy woman, asks for a third extension on her mortgage. After Christine denies her request, Ganush cries and begs on her knees to not repossess her house. Security guards arrive and she leaves in anger, accusing Christine of shaming her.
