Drag Me to Hell
Sam Raimi has a new horror movie? How can this not be a good thing? Yes, he's been directing the adventures of Spider-Man in recent years (and really should have stopped before the third installment), but Raimi's first film was the horror classic The Evil Dead, and The Evil Dead 2 was one of the few sequels to improve upon the original. The plot for Drag Me To Hell is fueled by that old horror movie chestnut, the gypsy curse. When a young bank officer refuses to give a payment extension to an old woman, she is soon being stalked by a demonic entity which, as the title says, ultimately wants to take her to hell for all eternity. This one hits on May 29th.
Here's the latest entry in the long running "creepy little kid" sub-genre of horror, and it reminds me quite a bit of 2007's Joshua. A seemingly angelic child is adopted by a loving family but things take a dark turn when bad things start happening to anyone who wrongs the newest addition to the family. Nothing too original here, but it could be good for a few scares. No release info for this one yet, in fact it's not even listed on IMDB.
