She's in competition with a competent colleague for an assistant manager position and isn't too sure about her status with a boyfriend.

The Greek letters surrounding the walls of the Great Room (where they hold the séance) are taken from the Book of Revelation, Chapter 12. Translated they read: "And they conquered by the blood of the Lamb; wherefore rejoice heavens, woe to earth and sea; for the devil has come down to you having great wrath, knowing his time is short." San Dena paraphrases this passage in Spanish when she drives the demon from Milos. For instance, "Lo venceremos por la sangre del Cordero" means "We will defeat him by the blood of the Lamb".

During the fight scene in Christine's car, Sylvia Ganush's old age makeup is uneven and in several shots she clearly appears to be much younger than the character is intended to be. See more »
Sam Raimi hasn't made a bad movie yet, and while Drag Me To Hell has emerged as a case of you hate it or you love it (like Apocalypse Now, Forrest Gump, and Avatar). It turns out to be a fun ride.
Christine Brown is a loan officer in L.A. and is trying to get the position of assistant manager. She decides that in order to impress her boss, she has to be tougher. So when an old gypsy woman comes and asks her for a third extension on mortgage payment, Christine denies her that. Feeling shamed, the old woman puts a curse on Christine, and sends a demon after her. Her life is suddenly in ruins, but with the help of a fortune teller, and his Latin American friends, Christine attempts to rid herself of the demon, before it takes her down to hell.
the ending of the film is more than somewhat controversial, and in fact you could even spend the rest of the day going over it in your mind, trying to figure out what the Raimi bros were thinking. In fact considering what they choose, the entire story is kind of pointlessly staged, but at least it is fun. Raimi takes us on a crazy ride, we the viewers are treated to a handful of shocking and humorous moments, many of which directly resemble, the Evil Dead flicks. You can tell from this that after fifteen years, Raimi is still a master at horror. He has tackled every genre but it is clear now that he is most at home with this genre. I would not say it's lovable, but it doesn't disappoint either.
