“Honey, just keep the coffee coming, or I’ll give you a tip you won’t forget!”
The Halloweenies have good jobs, great friends, and a bright future. Today, though, they’re going to Hell as they face the wrath of Lamia, the omnipotent evil force within Sam Raimi‘s 2009 horror comeback Drag Me to Hell. Worst of it all? They’re taking you with ’em.
Button up, deadites.
Join the gang as they chart Raimi’s ambitious career following 1993’s Army of Darkness, break down the formation of Ghost House Pictures, revisit the oddity that is 2013’s Oz the Great and Powerful, explain how the 2008 housing crisis informs this picture, and debate whether or not this deserves a seat the table that is the Evil Dead franchise.
