Drag Me to Hell and Suck My Blood Out While You're At It!
There's some good news for horror fans today, because Sam Raimi's "back to basics" fright-fest "Drag Me to Hell" is being released on DVD today.
I wanted to see this movie in the normal theater, but I never had the chance to, instead I went to the dollar theater... but I still had a good time!
"Drag Me to Hell" was a fast and fun horror flick that never took itself seriously (in true Raimi fashion), but scared the crap out of you at the same time. Alison Lohman and Justin Long did pretty well in the film, and their characters were enjoyable. There was a lot of physical action in "Drag Me" for a horror movie, but to Raimi fans, that sort of thing is commonplace. Overall, the film is a lot of fun and it's sure to get newcomers to the genre squirming, screaming and laughing as they watch. Horror fans need to seriously check it out!
Secondly, there's going to be a new vampire film released in January of 2010 called "Daybreakers." The film stars Ethan Hawke, Sam Neil and the creepster himself, Willam Dafoe. The basic synopsis is this: Mankind has been inflicted with a disease that has changed everyone into vampires. Now that the blood supply is running low, they become more frantic in developing a plan to survive. In the meantime, the humans work secretly with vampires to save the human race... a bit confusing...
"Daybreakers" looks like a pretty cool movie, but I wouldn't say that it's a straight horror flick. Judging by a recent poster, it seems to that it's going to have a more sci-fi flavor (pun intended) than a "blood and guts" feel. Then again, I could be wrong. The trailer does look exciting though, and the cast should be able to hold the script together well enough. So yeah, I'm looking forward to "Daybreakers," it should be interesting to see.
Here's the HD trailer for "Daybreakers."
