You can ask anyone who knows me, I’m not much a fan of horror films, perhaps it’s the disturbing images that follow you to bed at night or maybe it’s all the creepy music followed up by intense scenes that send you flying out of your seat, either way I always find myself fighting to see the new James Bond movie over the horror flick of the week, and if they do get me in to the theater it’s always a little unpleasant watching half the movie through the cracks in my hands that cover my face. I know you’re thinking, damn he’s a chicken but c’mon! wouldn’t you like to go home that night and not have to check under the bed and in the closet to assure yourself that no new found demons plague it, or no axe-wielding marauder waits for you behind a half-closed door?
Anyway, the first time I saw the clips for Drag me to Hell I was impressed, that must have been the very first time in my human life that I uttered the words, “Damn, I really want to see that horror movie!” Well the movie is out now and I still haven’t seen it, I’ve been busy trying to pocket the little bit of cash that I have, and haven’t quite had the 10 dollars to run out to AMC and indulge in a film. I think the reason that the film sparks my interest is that the event of why the horror and suspense occurs is pretty funny, and the over-the-top effects make it even more comical.
So when I finally get enough cash to check it out I’m sure that my horror loving friends will jump at the chance to go and see a horror movie where I wasn’t dragged to my seat and forced to watch as some monster jumped out at an unsuspecting “good guy” and was subsequently torn to shreds as all monsters tend to do to their victims.
