Trailer For Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell

Universal Pictures has debuted the trailer for director Sam Raimi's new horror movie, Drag Me to Hell, opening in theaters on May 29th.

In the film, Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charming boyfriend, professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) arrives at the bank to beg for an extension on her home loan. Should Christine follow her instincts and give the old woman a break? Or should she deny the extension to impress her boss, Mr. Jacks (David Paymer), and get a leg-up on a promotion? Christine fatefully chooses the latter, shaming Mrs. Ganush and dispossessing her of her home.

In retaliation, the old woman places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Haunted by an evil spirit and misunderstood by a skeptical boyfriend, she seeks the aid of seer Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) to save her soul from eternal damnation. To help the shattered Christine return her life to normal, the psychic sets her on a frantic course to reverse the spell. As evil forces close in, Christine must face the unthinkable: how far will she go to break free of the curse?

Looks pretty good and the film has been getting positive reactions from test screenings. Its also nice to see Raimi going back to horror and taking a break from doing more Spider-Man films.

I'm also glad that Raimi finally back to his root and directing this film. I think this film will be one of the best horrors of the year and absolutely way way better than "The Unborn".
