Drag Me to Hell (2009)

This is a scary movie that's executed in a funny way. Josh would say the movie is very visual. It's true, nothing in this movie (again as Josh commented) is included without a reason. We watched, as with most movies I watch, with caption and through the credits.

There are at most four "scary-scary" scenes. But I would say there are two or three. But which of the many scenes that build tension are "scary-scary"? Definitely worth watching, but overall it isn't that great. Oh right, we watched the unrated version which adds, as far as Josh noticed, three changes, that weren't as great as the original. But it tends to be with changes, that there are those that like changes, and those that don't. The level of scariness was for me less than The Shining, but this might depend on the person.

The blu-ray disc had extras which featured comments and details on certain parts of the production. For example, they talk about the scene with the goat in it and how that's done. Or the scene at the end of the movie. I can't say what, but the extras are cool to watch. We didn't watch them all, but the ones we watched were interesting.

I haven't watched that many scary movies; in fact, besides the above I only remember having seen Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining', 'Suspiria', part of 'Halloween', part of 'Gothika', 'Signs', part of 'I Know What You Did Last Summer', part of 'Alien', 'Thir13en Ghosts', 'Sleepy Hollow', and a day after watching 'Drag Me to Hell', 'Pickman's Model' and 'Chilean Gothic'.
