    I remember this movie was quite popular when it came out. I’ve never watched it but a lot of people claimed it was “way scary.” Of course, I enjoy good horror stories but jump scares bother the shit out of me. If THIS is what passes for scary nowadays…

      I presume the people who found it scary are the same who thought the Paranormal Activity movies were bone-chilling and that Dead Space was great “psychological horror” (I actually liked Dead Space a lot but come on, it’s not scary and no, predictable jumpscares don’t count as psychological horror).

       

      Anyway, I’ve got to say though, the visual of the chick being dragged to Hell was pretty awesome.

        ” Dead Space was great “psychological horror” ”

        LOOOOOOOOOOOL

        DS is not a bad game… but hardly psychological 😀

        “Paranormal Activity movies were bone-chilling”

        I thought that P.A., at least the first one, was OK. Not bone-chilling, but was an interesting concept. The sequels were jsut more of the same… bit like “Saw”… I like the first one, but the sequels were just boring…

    So the movie ends with her going to Hell anyway? So, what was the point of the movie?

    What is it about these recent movies that leave me depressed as hell? First, The Human Centipede and now this? Where are my meds?

    Seriously, I feel sick…

    Odd when the kind-of-funny-horror-movies make me feel this way.

    Jump scares are.. they are for a horror movie what killing of a random little innocent child is for a sad movie, just cheap and uncreative.

    And maybe it’s because I didn’t see the whole film, but that story was kinda.. not really there? At least it was pretty stupid and lazy..

    Dude, what’s up with the audio in this video? Did you have your microphone turned up to 11 for this video? My speakers are crackling, and I have the sound on low…

    Edit: Saw the note in the end credits. Isn’t that something you can alter in editing though?

    I had heard good things about this – what a disappointment. Not counting the audio issues you were having, the jump scares were starting to give me a headache – they used the same windy jump scare noise almost every time too, making it worse.

    Kitten murder makes me sad. 🙁

    I don’t think I’ve seen Alison Lohman in anything before; does she ever change her expression, or is it vacant all the time? The only thing I’ve liked Justin Long in was Dodgeball, where he just kept getting hit in the face.

    I hope Doug doesn’t spot the part of the shack wall where his name is inside a heart. 😉

    I had to watch the video here since TGWTG wasn’t working for me but great review Phelous! I had heard it was “really scary” when it first came out, but then I heard people call it a horror comedy (though I never heard someone compare it to Evil Dead) so I still don’t know which it’s supposed to be. I’m just disappointed with this movie. All the jump scares, plus the protagonist is killed/dragged to hell anyway so it was pointless. I will say though, now I’m going to develop an irrational fear of goats. Thanks for that!

    Thank you Phelous!!

    When this came out I heard so many rave reviews. Needless to say I was greatly dissapointed when I saw it. And yes Alison deserved to go to hell for that…bullshit you hypocritical old bag. Oh and the overuse of CGI gave me gas. Seriously have we had such a drought of good horror that whenever a mediocre or slightly lower movie comes out its praised as the second coming of Hellraiser.

    I quite liked Drag me to Hell. I like how a lot of people just agree to Phelous’ opinion now without even having seen the movie.

    Though its not a great Sam Rami film, I still think its way better than your average recent horror movie.

      Can’t really put any blame on Phelous for that one, though. I’m not sure what it is about Channel Awesome fans, but they tend to jump the gun when judging something. I remember almost kersploding inside when I saw people agreeing with Linkara’s evaluation of The Maxx back when he talked about Darker Image.

        Personally I enjoy the reviews, and sometimes I even decide what to watch based on them, but I don’t take anyone else’s judgment in place of my own. Do I know if Drag Me to Hell is a good or bad movie? No, I’ve never watched it. But I do know it’s got stuff in it that’s funny as hell.

    It’s funny that out of all the colorful background stuff behind you, the first thing I noticed was that wooden sign from the Troll 3/The Crawlers review. 🙂

    I’m glad you didn’t like this movie. There were so many good reviews when it first came out, but I thought it looked silly – and I like the whole supernatural horror thing. The CGI was ridiculous, too. And I really don’t like Justin Long, although I’m not sure why. Also, I’ll be sure to pass on this movie’s advice to my mom who works at a bank.

    Am I the only one reminded of that “button, button, who’s got the button” kid’s rhyme thing?

      Like Evil Dead 2 doesn’t have abourt 20 jump scares in it too? This is one time where I am in total disagreement with Phelous. Drag Me To Hell was great for what it was, a dumb, funny horror movie, that’s all it was intended to be. I wonder if Evil Dead 2 had come out recently, rather than being a cult classic,  would Phelous hate that too and give it a shitty review? Probably. The youth of today, so entwined in cynicism.

       

      Still love the show! still a fan, but yeah, I totally disagree with this review. No way in hell should DMTH be in the same category as movies like birddemic and Troll 2!

        Yes I full make my decisions based on when something came out. Not if I actually enjoyed it or not. If you want to play it like that I’ll say I wonder if people think this thing successfully pulled off being comedy or satire is simply because Sam Raimi’s name is on it. 😛
        And, no, DMTH isn’t in the same category as Birdemic or Troll 2, cause those WERE enjoyable dumb movies.

          I thought it was hilarious myself. And I’m not a sam raimi fanboy, I’m preparing for a shitstorm here but… i didn’t even like Army Of Darkness, or any of the Spiderman movies, or Xena or Hercules; but I did find drag me to hell quite funny, that scene where she bled all over her boss and he said “did any go in my mouth” cracked me up. Only Raimi films I liked were Evil Dead 1 and 2, Darkman and Drag Me To Hell. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it was a masterpeice or anything, but I found it funny and actually JUMPED a few times, which is more of a reaction than most movies can get out of me. 

          Like I said I’m still a huge fan of your show, and maybe it was dumb of me to insinuate that you took the date of its release into account.The world would be a boring place if we all shared the same opinons.

    I get why you didn’t like the movie and when you make valid arguments you make me realize that I loved this movie so much only because at the moment there were only awful horror movies. So it was the “least worse” movie.
    But hey, I liked more your review.

    I don’t know if I’m going to like seeing Phelous giving a good review for a movie. That would be just awkward.

    I absolutely loved Drag Me to Hell. It’s not scary and it’s cheesy to the point of humor, but that’s the whole point. It’s like Raimi’s way of setting up a spiritual Evil Dead sequel, and while not nearly as good as Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness, it’s still pretty great. Looking at something like this with scares in mind is going into it with the wrong mindset. It’s like expecting serious drama from something like The Toxic Avenger or genuine scares from Gingerdead Man; it exists to be cheesy, overdone, and fun. Great review, though.

    why Phelous why did some one have to make her stab a kitty ;^; no seriously call me a werid cat lady but that made me sad I hope she dies…which given the title “drag me to hell” its probably going to happen.

    haha eyeballs in mouth. that made me laugh out loud, No idea why.

    okay so if they are going to kill a goat why bother killing that cat. was it just to waste our time 8D ?!??! I HATE YOU MOVIE.

        In Evil Dead Ash pours boiling hot water down his throat, punches himself in the face repeatedly, saws off his own hand with a chainsaw, gets laughed at by a bunch of previously inanimate objects like desk-lamps, chairs and taxidermied animal heads, a man jumps on a trapdoor squishing a zombie’s head who’s eyeballs pop out and land in a screaming woman’s mouth, it’s supposed to be cartoony, and over the top.

          I’d like to address your comments, if I may. First I think it’s important to understand that something isn’t either objectively funny or objectively not funny. Some people will find it funny and others will not. This is a matter of personal taste. Now, there may be a general consensus over whether something is funny, but that doesn’t mean everyone will find it funny. For example, I’ve never liked shows like Friends or Seinfeld. To me, they aren’t funny. But other people like them, which is completely fine.

          As for something being intended as a comedy…The director’s intent of having something be a comedy doesn’t mean that everyone has to find it funny. I think that, if you’re likely to find something funny, you’ll do so even if you go into it thinking it’s supposed to be serious. If not, then either it’s not your taste or the director hasn’t conveyed their point clearly. Telling folks that it’s supposed to be funny is unlikely to change their response to the film. Also, it’s important to point out that horror comedy means something should be both scary and funny. If someone feels it does not work on one or the other level (or both), then they will not like the film.

          Obviously many people like Drag Me to Hell. Other people don’t for whatever reason. It’s not about “not getting it” or not understanding the director’s intent.

          Thanks if you read this whole thing!

    I actually went out and bought this movie on the recommendation that it was “like Evil Dead”, and even at 6 bucks for the DVD I felt ripped off. If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s jump scares especially when they’re over used and obvious; a few jumps scares in a movie are fine but this movie just beats you over the head with them.

    I can see how this movie would appeal to some, if you’re a big fan of gross-out, out of place over the top gore/humor than it might be your thing, but personally I felt the genres were terribly mixed in this movie. If you’re twelve years old and still think nosebleed and barf humor is funny then you’ll love it but for those of us whose brains have developed beyond fart and vomit jokes this thing is just a mess.

    Lastly I was wondering if that says “Pat is good” or more likely “Pot is good” on the wall? Being a Nova Scotia boy myself (born and raised!) I think I know, but I’m just curious. Another great review Phelous…JUMP SCARE! 😀

        @ Emyn. I get where you’re coming from, but some of these comments are clearly from the point of view of people think this film was suppsoed to be serious, especially the one about the talking goat. It disheartens me to see people forming an opinion on a movie based on Phelous’s comedic review. I love Phelous, he’s awesome and his reviews are incredibly enertaining, most of them more-so than DMTH, but I still think people should form their own opinions and when doing so they should form them in the correct context. For example, if someone judged Citizen Kane on the basis of it being a slapstick comedy, their conclusions would not warrant any kind of validation. I find people often tend to have a hard time judging a dark comedy, they don’t know how they’re suppsoed to feel when watching it, this is why American Werewolf in London was a box-office failure, people tend to want a one-note movie, they’re not comfortable with alternating between hysterical laughter and extremely graphic violence. I’m not saying Phelous is one of those people, I actually respect the fact he made this review, knowing that a lot of people would disagree with him, in essence he is the completye opposite of some of the sheep making comments here.

          Thanks. I see what you’re saying. Two things, though: I think Phelan is quite comfortable with violence and humor mixed together – he himself uses that technique a lot. I suspect many of the folks who watch his show like it as well. The other thing is that I assume most people, myself included, are agreeing with him because we already had these opinions before watching the review, not because we are sycophants. I don’t think Phelan would want that anyway.

            Yeah I think Phelous just thought it was  bad movie, which is fair enough because we all have differing opinions,as it should be! But some of the commentators clearly haven’t seen the film, so judging it on a Biased representation isn’t in any way logical or fair.  A lot of people didn’t like DMTH, I don’t think anyone is wrong in that opinion, as long as they’ve actually seen the movie themselves. I hated Army Of Darkness, outside of a few very funny moments, I felt it was a sterilized version of Evil Dead made for a more broad, mainstream audience, I know that isn’t how most people feel about the film and I don’t begrudge anybody for thinking otherwise.

            I see how you can feel frustrated at seeing people bash the movie without seeing it themselves. I haven’t seen DMTH, was not really intending to see it, and Phelous’s review has now cemented it.

            This is not from a kneejerk, synchopantic reaction to the review – I don’t think he’s ever told anyone not to see a movie, actually. I like Sam Raimi just fine – I enjoyed the Spider-Man movies and warmed up to the Evil Dead movies, and I like stuff he’s just produced like Hercules and Xena.

            I don’t think I’ll like this because I hate books/movies that kill/hurt pets. It’s a cliche you find in horror especially, and it upsets me to have it used as a cheap emotional tug/shock on the audience. It tends to rip me out of it. I don’t like Justin Long as an actor. I’m sure he’s a lovely person in real life, but he always annoys me when I see him – when I’m seeing an actor/actress instead of seeing the character it can be a problem. Jump scares every 2 minutes get annoying after a while. Jump scares are really effective when they’re used well, but you can’t build any atmosphere and creepiness if you’re yelling “Boo!” all the time. And to be honest, the biggest problem with the movie is the premise – you get cursed to hell because you do your job correctly? I realize that most horror involves bad stuff happening to good people, but maybe it’s the mortgage/economy part of it that I find depressing.

            Anyway, I love Phelous’s reviews. Sometimes I have seen the movies and agree with the beatdowns, sometimes I’m glad I haven’t seen the movies, and sometimes I find new favorites (like Birdemic). I don’t always agree with the reviews either – I really enjoyed RE: Degeneration and felt he was being too harsh on the “doy” moments of Claire, for example.

            I’m enjoying this discussion!

    @octo7: just to defend my previous point, this wasn’t marketed as a comedy. The trailers made it seem decently serious. Evil Dead has camp value, but to be honest, anything with the name “Evil Dead” is going to employ some camp. DMTH seemed like it would take itself seriously, so it’s audience tried to as well.

      It’s even sillier than Evil Dead, there’s no real horror aspect to it at all except grossout stuff like saliva and snot. The cross falling on her head is a prime example of the sheer slapstick, and the goat! Maybe it was marketed incorecctly but you can’t really blame the film on that. Twin Peaks FWWM was marketed as a teen slasher film but it wasn’t the movie’s fault that cinema-goers were disappointed to discover it was a surrealist nightmare centering around incest instead  😀

        You CAN blame the film for the fact what your saying it’s supposed to be (comedy) didn’t come through to a lot of people. Honestly I can’t see how you can say this was a sillier movie than Evil Dead (fun wise anyway). I of course say the movie didn’t know what it wanted to be leaving it a confused mess.

          It definitely wasn’t as fun as Evil Dead, didn’t mean to imply that, but it was just as OTT and silly. I’ve only seen the film once, and it was at a time when I was starving for a new comedy/horror movie that might be fun like those of the Raimi of old, if I watch it a second time I may see more problems with it.

           

          I thought the film was primarily a comedy, really, I didn’t take it in any way seriously or realize it was intended to be serious, if I’d watched it as a serious film, I probably would have hated it too. I wonder if you’re a fan of American Werewolf? A lot of people seem to hate that movie because they felt it didn’t know whether it wanted to be a comedy or a horror, I loved it.

    and wow, the reaction of the boss when she’s heavily bleeding “omg..stop it!” as if it looked like she did it on perpose or had control over it. “did I get any in my mouth?” what? seriously? was it misplaced comedy or a realy heartles character. confusing.

    You, sir, are THE BEST reviewer I have found on the internet. Your lackadaisical style of review allows for the funniest sarcastic remarks. Honestly, I saw this film in theatres and thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was nice for Raimi to at least pretend to be some version of himself. But, yeah, this movie sucks. If I heard one more person tell me how impressive and/or scary this film is, I was going to lose it! Thanks for spreading the word!

    Seriously, these damn movies and their damn jumo scares. That’s what the Paranormal Activity 1 movie looked like to me when it first came out- Jump Scares and the Endless Footage of Nothing Happening Before Hand. This film also looked that way (minus the douche with a cmarea filming the inside of his house) in it’s trailers. And so does Sinister for that matter!

    When I first heard about this movie, I just dismissed it as some generic horror movie… But after looking at what you showed me in this review, I’d have to say it’s the bare bones definition of a ‘generic horror movie’. Well, the one that isn’t “crazy guy with a knife kills people who go to a party”.

    And some people constantly try to defend this movie?

    How can anyone defend this? You can’t say this is a good horror movie! You just can’t! Because when a movie is just jumpscares, it’s not good horror, it’s just suprising! A good horror movie works on building tension and atmosphere, not just throwing loud noises at you. Sure, when a person notices a sudden change in their environment, it’s human nature for them to ‘jump’ (hence the term jumpscare), that’s just how it is, but that’s not scary! It’s suprising! It’s not scary.

      I do not know why people defend it either… or even praise it (92% on Rotten Tomatoes… fuck my donkey!)

      I suppose some people defend it as an “horror comedy” and claims it is supposed to be stupid and silly… but I think that even as a horror comedy it does not work.

      Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness were Horror-Comedies. They were horror movies and they thwere funny too.

      This is garbage. Sam Raimi failed in my opinion. Filling the movie with jump scares just makes it obnoxious and annoying. At some poit the scares become so predictable that they lose any appeal as a scare or as a joke…

      If you told me Drag me to Hell was directed by Uwe Boll instead of Sam Raimi I would believe it…

      ==================

      The ONLY explaination I can find on why critics like this movie so much is that it is PG-13, hence “safe”. Since more critics have no idea what a good horror-movie is, they think this is the golden standard: a non scary “boo-jumpscares” movie. Something that your 2 years old maybe would find scary…

    I absolutely hated this movie. I couldn’t get past the first 5 mins. I could barely watch the review, the only saving grace was Phelous to make me laugh.

    This movie is SO BAD…

    I do NOT understand how it could get “almost universal critical acclaim”… I mean it holds 92% on Rotten Tomatoes… (although the audience score is a mere 61 %, which is still too damn high)

    WTF happened?

    OHHH and I thought that I would just get rid of the cursed button not sewn into my skin or something because it was so tacky. Nah I’ll keep it for my next blood bath show.

    The iconic Evil Dead style humor just serves to take you out of the movie by telling you, “Hey, we put much more effort into that one, didn’t we?”

    The only iconic feature of this movie is the amount of phlegm on the screen.

    Alright, everything wrong with the whole premise of a teller at the local bank making decisions about foreclosing on a property. This is like a cop sentencing someone to prison! The cops can only investigate crime and make arrests, they can’t prosecute, convict, or sentence anyone!
     
     
     
    Likewise local bank branches typically do NOT deal with mortgages/deeds of trust or the generic term “home loans.” Those are brokered by “loan officers” whom rarely work in bank branches because they are too busy making real money on the phone and specifically want to avoid dealing with the public at large like crack pot immigrants such as the witch in this film.
     
     
     
    It’s rare but possible that a lone officer at the local branch did help the witch get a mortgage/deed of trust. So what? Loan officers don’t enforce payment or make decisions about foreclosures!
     
     
     
    The bank wouldn’t even own the mortgage/deed of trust! ALL home loans are rolled into packages and sold off within 60 days! Meaning a totally different company would be responsible for collecting payment!
     
     
     
    The other companies which buy home loans are NOT local bank branches like the one seen here! At best the witch would have to deal with them over the phone not in person!
     
     
     
    The single most unbelievable thing is Stu stealing the file off her desk. WTF? Home loan files have been electronic since the late 90s! All he would need is the loan # and he could have looked it up in the system without raising any red flags.
     
     
     
    Also, getting foreclosed on is VERY difficult. The banks will work with anyone under any circumstances. Can’t make your payments because you’re serving years in prison? They’ll wait until you get out. Seriously! Because the banks know that it’ll be very difficult to recoup any losses on a foreclosure. Those getting foreclosed on almost always want to be because they realize their situation is hopeless and it would cost more to save the house than to just walk away. Foreclosures are NOT due to unemployment. 10% of foreclosures are due to nasty divorces and the other 90% are on investment properties that went bad.

    I loved this movie because I like an over-abundance of jump scares without any tension or suspense and I can’t get enough gross-out humor.

    No, wait, that’s not right… This movie sucked on an epic level. That anyone liked it is beyond me.

    What a movie….Terrible CGI effects, a jump-scare every 5 seconds, & even though she didn’t deserve her curse, you dislike her enough by the end to wish she’d have died & she doesn’t.
