A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
Christine Brown is a loans officer at a bank but is worried about her lot in life. She's in competition with a competent colleague for an assistant manager position and isn't too sure about her status with a boyfriend. Worried that her boss will think less of her if she shows weakness, she refuses a time extension on a loan to an old woman, Mrs. Ganush, who now faces foreclosure and the loss of her house. In retaliation, the old woman place a curse on her which, she subsequently learns, will result in her being taken to hell in a few days time. With the help of a psychic, she tries to rid herself of the demon, but faces several hurdles in the attempt. Written by

During the séance there is a thundering noise that gets so loud that the participants cover their ears. When it stops, the faces of the participants are shown. A closeup of Christine shows her without her hands over her ears. After the closeups of the others with their hands over their ears, the group as a whole is shown and Christine is taking her hands away from her ears. See more »
Best horror movie with good script , direction, special effects and music.
I saw a Sam Raimi movie after a long time and find this movie really exciting. All the cast was perfect the leading characters were all good. It was best of the demon movies I remember viewing, not scary but this movie keeps you engaged. I enjoyed the whole movie its running time is perfect as much as required to summarize the story, no twisted plot yet enough thrill to keep viewers engaged. You can easily guess which turn the film is going to take which keeps your interest and keeps you connected to the film.The direction and typical horror music of Sam Raimi makes the film above average, I really loved the music of this film which is vital to any horror film, and the special effects of this movie are just brilliant this movie has everything you need from any horror movie. The creativity in movie writing which is missing in most of films of modern age. Almost all the horror movies made fall in the category of slasher and torture porn but this movie has got some good script, with minimal violence and good screenplay. I highly recommend this movie It is resurrection of horror genre, a truly compelling movie which anybody can see.
