"Greed" is at the Core of Drag Me to Hell

Sam Raimi claims it is "just a coincidence" that the plot to DRAG ME TO HELL is timely.
The plot to Sam Raimi's return to horror, Drag Me to Hell, may seem tailor-made for our current economic crisis--a loan officer angers a demon by rejecting an elderly woman's request for an extension on her mortgage--but Raimi actually wrote the script for the film years ago with his brother, Ivan Raimi. In a recent interview, Raimi said:

"It wasn't written to reflect anything about our society or to paint banks as villains. It's a simple morality tale about a good woman, Christine, who makes a choice of greed, then hides behind the rules of the bank to avoid coming to terms with the sin she's committed."

While debuting the film at Cannes, Raimi further elaborated on the core concept of the film , saying:

"It's a simple morality tale about how greed leads to destruction."

Drag Me to Hell stars Alison Lohman as Christine Brown, the loan officer, Justin Long as Projessor Dalton, Christine's boyfriend, and Lorna Raver as Mrs. Ganush, an elderly gypsy in league with the devil.

Drag Me to Hell opens Friday, May 29th!
