More Info:
  • Matthew Sorrento

    With brother Ivan as his co-writer, Sam tosses out a delightful batch of tense, hilarious set pieces. The two are giggling behind the proceeds like the Coen brothers scripting fresh off a critical triumph.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    Raimi has made the most crazy, fun, and terrifying horror movie in years.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    With that fire in his belly, Raimi's Drag Me to Hell does everything we want a horror film to do: It is fearsomely scary, wickedly funny and diabolically gross.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Brilliantly nasty little horror film.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This film is cunningly crafted in every detail--direction, script, performances, comic timing, special effects--from thunderous start to delicious finish.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    As in the best horror movies, Drag Me to Hell keeps the audience on the edge of hysteria throughout, so that every thump sets the heart racing and every joke earns a slightly out-of-control laugh.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Raimi’s new film feels distinctly unburdened and fun, happily frolicking in its own pulp silliness.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Raimi's still very much up to his old tricks, retaining that deliriously over-the-top brand of Grand Guignol horror that he had abandoned by the mid-'90s in pursuit of other genres.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Unlike so much contemporary horror, it's devoid of sadism and mean-spiritedness. The looseness Raimi allows himself here results in an especially joyous kind of filmmaking, the sort where the filmmaker's delight in scaring us (and making us laugh) becomes part of the movie's fabric. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Truly, this is manna from hell.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    After directing three Spider-Man movies, Sam Raimi makes a masterful return to the horror genre.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Nothing short of horror-hound heaven.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Raimi knows how to modulate his technique, as with the coolly controlled morality tale "A Simple Plan," but he's a firm believer in the power of an active, expressive camera, as well as the value of insinuation.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Raimi as a filmmaker is clearly having more fun than he's had in years. So will his fans.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    Thrilling and often hilarious, it’s good to see one of Hollywood’s most inventive directors fully reinvigorated. On this form, Spider-Man 4 should be a belter.

    Empire Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    If the booga-booga shocks are sometimes repetitive, Drag Me does its audience right in its last-act burst of giddy momentum, sustained by crack editor Bob Murawski through a burlesque exorcism.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Drag Me to Hell has a tonic playfulness that’s unabashedly retro, an indulgent return to Mr. Raimi’s goofy, gooey roots.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The picture is single-mindedly devoted to pushing the audience's buttons, and who better than Raimi to do the honors?

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Horror-movie heaven.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The movie is a goofy, ridiculous blast, and yet Raimi means business: Even the precociously cute kitty isn't safe in this one.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    A Raimi-esque mix of gross-out madness and sick laughs.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Amy Binacolli

    If you can stomach the projectile-sputum gags and stapled-eyelid attack scene, it's hilarious.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jason Buchanan

    A popcorn film that aims to entertain -- nothing more, nothing less -- and it achieves that goal admirably.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Drag Me to Hell is unlike any scary thriller in a while: frightening, frenzied and fun.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Working with his brother Ivan, Sam Raimi is laughing with us - and often louder than we are.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    Fear not those who worried about Raimi after the last "Spiderman" debacle. There is no musical number here. The tongue is planted firmly in-cheek. The spirit of "Evil Dead" lives on.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    An unabashedly schlocky, expertly executed blend of jack-in-the-box jolts and humour.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Quick and lowdown-delightful. It's also a graveyard or two up in class from the torture films that, in recent years, have redefined horror for the worse.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Drag Me to Hell is an eyeball-gouging lesson in how to make a genre flick and live to tell about it.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Even if the obligatory third-act twist arrives with all the subtlety of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Drag Me to Hell otherwise steers mostly clear of predictability.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Drag Me to Hell is pure cheese. Goat cheese.

    New York Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Although Drag Me to Hell mostly fails as horror, it achieves sporadic success as a comedy.
