Sam Raimi Night! DRAG ME TO HELL

(From my tumblr post!!)

This past Tuesday I went out to the movies, it’s been a while since I’ve been out to a movie on a week night! (Weird for me to say that right?!?!)

It was actually for a TERROR TUESDAY event, sponsored by the Alamo Drafthouse, yup! At the screening we heard that, the L.A. Alamo is coming; “Sometime in the near future.”

 

 

The movie of the night was DRAG ME TO HELL! Directed by Sam Raimi! Because it was a RAIMI night I wore my DARKMAN shoes!!! Yes, I have DARKMAN SHOES!

DARKMAN SHOES, a gift from someone who knows me well!

I saw DRAG ME TO HELL when it first came out in theaters, I loved it and had a blast. If I ever find it on TV, I watch it.

It’s about a girl, Christine, who crosses a gypsy, get cursed and has 3 days of torture that may lead to a trip to Hell!

Should she go to hell???

Watching it again I jumped, closed my eyes and got the creepy feels. It’s classic Raimi who assaults you with sound and makes inanimate objects horrific! A floating lacy handkerchief was never more sinister.

At the screening there was a slew of guests; actor Dileep Rao, Producer Grant Curtis, Composer Christopher Young, and fellas from the sound department; Jussi Tegalman, Marti D. Humphrey, and Chris Jacobson then lastly Christian Cordella who worked on storyboards and the titles. (I hope I got all the name right, I was scribbling fast!)

Q&A Time!

All the fellas gushed about working with Sam Raimi, and shared how they created the sounds of hell for the big screen.

On the way out of the theater I was able to thank Dileep for coming out! Woot! He stayed through the whole movie!

I really do miss going to the movies, and this movie energized me, taking me to my happy place, mostly because it was a Sam Raimi movie! Yup!

Now, don’t upset gypsies, and just be nice! YUP!!
