As my friend put it, it's a horror movie about two people that have never seen a horror movie. And most of your description in the fourth paragraph there pretty much confirms it. I remember seeing all the hype for it and also remember thinking that it did have to be pretty contrived.

Look up the alternate ending. I believe it's the ending used in Europe. It doesn't make up for the rest of the movie, but it's a much better ending.

I never once thought that this movie seemed interesting enough to make me watch it.

I'd ask for your $2.00 back if I were you.

Drag Me to Hell was a tad disappointing to me, but I did love the ending.

Don't let Dread Central see this. They are still circle jerking over how great this film is supposed to be and how anyone who does not like it is probably a pedophile cannibal. Drag me to hell any day of the week over this mess.

Count me in as one of the ones who was disappointed by this. It was tense, but not scary.

Drag Me To Hell, on the other hand, actually scared me, and it was only PG-13. Sam Raimi is a master.

I still don't feel like seeing this, doesn't appeal to me, and got tired of Dread Central's continuous gushing over it.

Two and a half pickles is way to generous for this piece of crap.

I couldn't agree more. The only part that even made me jump was the drunk guy in the theater who decided to scream at the top of his lungs during the breakfast scene.

This was the kind of movie you needed to watch at home alone.

This movie was terrible, boring, and not at all scary. The alternate ending on the copy I got from Netflix was better, but nothing new. And the way the characters interacted was so unrealistic, most women aren't okay when their husband doesn't listen about picking up dirty socks. I'm pretty sure I'd leave a guy who was dead set on pissing off an evil spirit that's been haunting me my whole life, especially after I warned him repeatedly.

I did actually watch this movie home alone, in the middle of the night, but I found it boring as hell.

Terrible movie, I simply hated it. The part where the Ouija board caught on fire made everyone in the theater laugh.

I want to know why any self respecting demon would have followed that annoying beyotch around for years and years going so far as to keep childhood photos of her in the attic is beyond me. Seriously, demon, get a life already. If you had supernatural powers and could haunt any lady you like, why would you choose her? Sheesh.

In all honesty, besides the main characters both being stupid, right up until things start getting really freaky, all the "scary things" could easily have been explained away by a cat. Or squirrels in the walls. You know, seriously, my cat does way more disturbing things than the demon does, in fact, I'd rather have a demon than the cat. At least the demon politely goes and hides in the attic when caught, my cat just meows at me and tries to attack me going up the stairs.

Come to think of it, a horror movie about my cat would have been scarier!
