Drag Me to Hell


Fangoria..This was an interesting read that popped up this evening over at The Hollywood Reporter. In an article entitled CANNES’ RED CARPET IS BLOOD-SOAKED , the trade reports that ” The 62nd Festival de Cannes is turning into a bloodbath. ” They also state that viewers ” are enduring an onslaught of blood and gore from a lineup that has many questioning what point general director Thierry Fremaux and his programmers are trying to make. “…

Notice the SNOBS at the Hollywood Reporter say the Cannes audience had to ‘endure’ Sam’s film, hey DLTDHYWTLSY baby…there are PLENTY of actual FANS to make this film a success on its merits not some faux aristocratic honorific as far removed from the actual audiences as could be…..I hope Sam gets to Swagga down that gore splattered carpet in Cannes with a grin baby..ohh Bruce would ham it up, maybe we can convince Sam to bring him!

SciFiWire:..Sam Raimi, who directed the horror film Drag Me to Hell, told reporters that he’s as surprised as anyone that his modest movie will play at the Cannes Film Festival this week. Raimi even joked about tarnishing the luster of the prestigious festival.

“I’m super-surprised that the Cannes Film Festival wanted the picture,” Raimi said in a group interview on Monday in Beverly Hills, Calif. “I think it says a lot about the depravity in our society. It’s very disappointing in many ways. No, I’m kidding.”..

..Getting serious, Raimi explained how the genre film landed at Cannes. “Universal Pictures said, ‘Oh, we should show this to the Cannes viewing committee,'” Raimi said. “I don’t know what it’s called. At the time, I just didn’t think that was a good idea, but I didn’t want to say anything. Then I was really surprised when they accepted the picture.”…

‘Colin’ breaks molds, told from the perspective of the zombie,  and brings back the Raimi tradition of  low budget and high profile success…awesome encouragement for young filmmakers!! ITN:
