Drag Me to Hell is Not About "Blood and Guts"

Sam Raimi, co-writer and director of DRAG ME TO HELL, defends the film's PG-13 rating.
Today's generation of moviegoers are likely only familiar with the films of Sam Raimi that deal with a certain wall-crawling hero named Spider-Man. However, Raimi's origins in film are somewhat...darker than the adventures of Peter Parker. Raimi dropped out of college in 1981 to film The Evil Dead, which was a huge success and effectively launched his career.

It's been seventeen years since Raimi took a turn at the genre that began it all, but instead of being excited many of his fans are disappointed by the PG-13 rating on his latest contribution to horror, Drag Me to Hell. Raimi defended the rating in a recent interview saying:

"...those are just letters that people have prejudices about. It's not about the rating; it's about the intent of the film. If people want to see a blood-and-guts picture, this will not satisfy them and they should see an R. In fact, why not an X-rated or unrated film? R is for wussies if you're talking about blood and guts.

Drag Me to Hell stars Alison Lohman as Christine Brown a loan officer who angers a hell-dwelling demon by refusing to grant an elderly woman a mortgage extension.

Drag Me to Hell opens Friday, May 29th!
