trailer break: ‘Drag Me to Hell’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Or, Hell Is Other People’s Housing Crisis. Or Final Foreclosure. Or Mortgagalypse. Try it, it’s fun!

It’s always cause for celebration when Sam Raimi has a new movie for us. But Sam Raimi making a big-budget horror movie? This is a new, um, creature entirely. Can we hope for the same gonzo nightmare we usually get from Raimi? Should we hope for that? If there’s any of Raimi’s trademark comedy here, there’s no hint of it in the trailer.

On the other hand, his A Simple Plan (one of the rare movies that actually improves upon the book it’s based on) and The Gift are superstylish and downright chilling dark dramas that border on horror, and without a lick of humor either. They’re not quite the kind of horror we seem to be promised in this trailer, but I’m gonna remain optimistic.

One question: Bruce Campbell cameo? Can it truly be a Sam Raimi movie without one?

Drag Me to Hell opens in the U.S. and in the U.K. on May 29.
