My name:  Brian Martin

Drag Me to Hell (2009), directed by Sam Raimi

Cursed by an old gypsy woman (Lorna Raver) after refusing to grant a third extension on her mortgage, young loan officer Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) has only three days to either end the curse or shift it to someone else, knowing that if she fails her soul will be dragged to hell and eternal torment. These gypsies are hardcore. The movie opens with a kid who gets the same curse for stealing a necklace. Not a scary movie, but with buckets of blood and other bodily fluids, it’s certainly nauseating. Christine and her professor boyfriend both look like kids playing dress-up. For the slapstick horror crowd, the one that finds humor in excessive gore.
