When something like this comes across our virtual desks here at Dread Central, I usually have a moral dilemma regarding what we should do with it. On the one hand, looking at a breakdown of who the characters are in a film can reveal some important spoilers. On the other, when the film is as hush-hush as Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell, it’s our civic responsibility to spread as much info on it as we can… that’s how I sleep at night.
So when we got this list of characters for Drag Me to Hell today, my moral dilemma lasted about fourteen seconds, including the time it took me to actually read it. Check it out;
Ray Dalton: Late 20’s-Mid 30’s. Stephanie’s boyfriend, handsome, UCLA professor, sensible, understanding, willing to defy his parents to do what is right for the girl he cares about. Lead.
Mrs. Sylvia Ganush: 50’s-60’s. Eastern European woman with an old-world belief system, proud, and when defied and humiliated, becomes vengeful. Lead.
Rham Jas: 50. Mysterious Indian psychic, wise beyond his years and compassionate, a man learned not only in the spiritual world but also in academics
Ellen: Early-Mid 20’s. Stephanie’s roommate, funny, free-spirited
Mr. Jacks: 40’s-50’s. Bank manager who believes smart business decisions should always trump personal feelings
Stu Rubin: Late 20’s-Late 30’s. Conniving loan officer. Stephanie’s competition, out for himself and his own gains
Trudy Dalton: 50’s-60. Ray’s mother, rich and cultured, judgmental, opinionated and protective of her son
George Dalton: 50’s-60’s. Ray’s father, rich, more tolerant than his wife, polite and respectful
Ilenka Ganush: 24, sexy gypsy girl, Mrs. Ganush’s granddaughter, fiery, not afraid to tell it like it is.
Sexy gypsy girl? Yes please! As long as it’s not a Snatch-style gypsy, that’s just wrong. And how much do you want to be the “mysterious Indian psychic” will know more about what’s going on than anyone else? Drag Me to Hell rolls on March 10th in LA, look for more news very soon!
