Waitress: So you're just going to sit heredrinking coffee all night long.Christine: Yes... Maybe! What's it to you?Waitress: Honey, I make my money on tips.Coffee drinkers don't tip.Christine: Honey, just keep the coffee coming,or I'll give you a tip you won't forget!
Since Drag Me to Hell came out ten years ago today (!!!) Sam Raimi has made... wait while I count this all up, carry the zero... Sam Raimi has made ONE movie since this came out. ONEEEE. That is a bucket of goat's blood worth of awful. I don't even want to get into the fact that actress Alison Lohman has also all but vanished since then -- this movie about a curse was cursed!
Even though DMTH got great reviews (here is mine) and remains one of Raimi's finest accomplishments -- I would call it one of the best horror films of the new millenium, easy peasy -- it didn't do great at the box office because people are awful, and when Raimi followed it up with his flop Oz movie, which even diehards like me couldn't defend, well I don't blame Sam for taking a breather. Making some Evil Dead TV was a plenty fine breather. You can come back now, Sam. We're ready. Drag Me to Hell 2 is a'callin...
