Who doesn’t love a good horror flick? Drag Me to Hell is the upcoming horror film making a lot of noise. Written and directed by Sam Raimi and stars Alison Lohman and Justin Long.
The plot entails Christine (Lohman) who denies the request of an elderly Slavic woman for an extension on her mortgage. In return the woman, enraged and humiliated, exacts revenge by placing a curse upon Christine, who later learns from a psychic that she is to be tortured for three days by a Lamia before being dragged to hell to burn for eternity.
Hollyscoop caught up with the films star Justin Long at the Los Angeles premiere and asked him about the fear level of the film. “Scary! What Sam does is he manipulates sound and shadows and creaking floorboards. He does it in the way that like can create absolute terror out of just the slightest everyday thing. I’m excited for people to see it. How would I describe the fear level? An 11 on a scale of 1 to 10. “
When we asked Justin how one can avoid being dragged to hell, he said, “I don’t know, I just hope I live my life and I’m good to people and I don’t disrupt the natural balance.”
With all this talk about hell and voodoo, we wanted to know if the star believes in it himself. “I do," said Justin.
"I believe that there is a supernatural. I believe in another element. I believe there is a part of me that does. I don’t know to which extent. I believe in superstition. I knock on wood, if it’s fake wood I’m gonna be dragged to hell. “
The film doesn’t hit theatres until May 29, 2009, but until then, check out the movie trailer below.
