SDCC 08: Drag Me to Hell Update

It's just a loan, lady!So, why did Sam Raimi finally decide to come back to the horror genre after years of making one of the most successful comic book film series of all time?

Andrew Kasch is reporting in to answer that question. Raimi decided after Spider-Man 3 that he wanted to get back to the basics and concentrate more on a story than an FX heavy film. The horror genre is where he believes that opportunity lies and Drag Me to Hell is that chance to show off his story telling skills. The Evil Dead director told attendees of the San Diego Comic-Con that the PG-13 flick will be a fun spook house ride.

Drag Me to Hell is about a woman who denies an old woman a bank loan. This small mistake costs her severely as the old hag places a curse on the young woman.

What about Spider-Man 4? Sony is most likely going to make one and Sam Raimi would really like to be on board again to direct.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
