Okay, fellow Dead-ites, I was willing to give Mr. Raimi the benefit of the doubt; even though he didn't direct this unfortunate happenstance of a movie, he did have a say in who did direct it. Therefore, I was willing to believe it would be something that his fellow Dead-ites would enjoy, but that just was not what happened. It was like watching Cabin in the Woods, with a mish-mash of The Ring and The Exorcist thrown in for good measure. I mean, really? Really? Do NOT watch this film and expect it to be even remotely entertaining as the original is. It does not have the same grit and fun, and the characters are a joke (but not a joke as in ha-ha, but more like, Oh God, no no). It's hard to have empathy for cardboard, so who cares if they get killed? Disappointing doesn't cover it. Mr. Raimi, get out of the backseat and start driving. Obviously it only works when you are at the wheel. When we watched Drag Me to Hell in the theater, we were laughing our asses off while the rest of the audience screamed and gasped...that's the magic we are missing.
