Drag me to Hell - 1 on 1 with Director Sam Raimi
www.blacktree.tv BlackTree TV Hostess Jennifer Johnson goes 1 on 1 with veteran director Sam Raimi. More than 10 years ago, brothers Sam and Ivan Raimi penned the first draft of the screenplay that would become Drag Me to Hell. In its earliest incarnation, the script was simply titled The Curse. Weve always loved the idea of curses, Ivan Raimi explains. We loved thinking about what would 10 Mrs. Ganush surprises Christine in her car. happen to an ordinary person if they were cursed and put into these extraordinary circumstances. In this instance, forces beyond her control torment young bank loan officer Christine Brown after she commits what seems to be a mild trespass and denies a loan extension to an elderly woman named Mrs. Ganush. As Sam Raimi puts it, the film is a simple morality tale where the protagonist is a really good girl. She means well, and shes trying to make it in Los Angeles. Christines got a boyfriend she really cares about, and to get him, she does one bad thing. Shes makes a choice to sin; it sets the ball in motion, and the movies about payback to her. We made Christine morally complex, adds Ivan Raimi. Shes trying to get ahead in her job, like anyone else. Shes just a normal person with all of the attributes that we might have, colored in grays instead of black and white. Thats what makes her interesting to me. Shes put into a situation where her punishment does not fit her crime, and it is exciting to watch how she has to deal with it.
