Okay, so I’ve completely been asleep at the wheel. Sam Raimi — awesome director of such greats as the Evil Dead triligy, A Simple Plan, Darkman and the Spiderman trilogy is releasing a horror movie — Drag Me To Hell — real soon like.

Raimi hasn’t directed a horror movie in arguably ten years. The Gift, released in 2000 or so, was a decent movie (and the only movie where I’ve seen Keanu Reeves actually act), but it wasn’t balls out horror like The Evil Dead. I had heard rumors he was doing one a year or more ago, but I never kept up with it because internet rumors usually never pan out.

Anywho, I saw a clip over at Bloody Disgusting today (where they have a total of five clips from the flick), and I immediately stopped watching after the first because I don’t want to see anything more. I’m not even going to dig up the trailer.

But, if you are interested, here’s the one I scoped:

Holy shit, that already looks awesome. I’ll be seeing this in the theater, hopefully.

  • I definitely want to see this one, and I'm still hopeful there will be an Evil Dead IV.

  • I never understood the big deal with Sam Raimi. Evil Dead was boring and Spider-Man was OK. Maybe I just don't get it.

  • Snooze

    I had no idea what Sam Raini had done, but now that sounds kind of cool [I enjoyed the movies that I've seen in your list]. I think I'll go check it out. Or perhaps wait until it comes out on DVD and watch it during daylight.

  • You will probably see the remake of the first before that. 🙁

  • Give “A Simple Plan” another spin. “The Gift” is Okay, too.

  • WRONG.

  • If the little clip up there is any indication, daylight may be a viable option.

    I've seen all of Raimi's movies (with the exception of the Baseball one, which I have no interest) and have really liked them all for one reason or another. This one, though, I need to check my expectations so I'm not disappointed. lol.

    It's good. A real return to his roots. Whoever said it was Evil Dead 4 was right on the money…(only, without Ash)
    And James Ferguson's GOTTA be joking. Evil Dead was boring?

  • It's a fun movie. It reminds me of a really long Tales from the Crypt episode, especially with the ending. Watch it and you'll see what I mean.
