Drag Me to Hell

I went to see Drag Me to Hell. I think I was hoping it would be cathartic or releasing for me, but it left me feeling down.

I suspect this is just me, my phobic reaction making me take it too seriously. I guess many people who enjoy boisterous daft supernatural horror films would like this one. It's just I didn't like it. I thought the heroine was great, really good actress, and the scary scenes were both ridiculous and pretty scary in places. But the overall thing left me with a bad feeling. Probably this isn't a very useful review to help anyone else to judge whether they would like it.

Actually I think that's probably more unclear than it needs to be. Basically I was very frightened of going to hell when I was a little girl. I thought this film would be about a feisty young woman fighting back against damnation, as a sort of metaphor for fighting off the fears of my youth. I thought it would be scary but inspiring. Instead all her efforts are futile, her courage and kindness avail her nothing, against inexorable damnation. it made me feel pretty gloomy actually.
