Finally, a horror film that fulfills its purpose: to scare you (and make you laugh in that way only campy horror movies can). Thanks Drag Me To Hell.
The use of ambient/natural noise to invoke the suspense, and build up to the horrifying moments in Drag Me To Hell is remarkably well done. The sound provokes fear and does not feel manufactured due to its natural and familiar origins. Used at the right moments and at the right level the sound proves more effective than the other techniques in Drag Me To Hell to keep you on the edge of your seat and questioning what will come next.
Everyone loves a little camp when it comes to horror movies. Well, in Drag Me To Hell you will find it and it is plentiful. There is a careful blend of the scary with the comedic, the failed seriousness that is camp, and it works wonderfully to bring you out of the moment of fear and thrills and then sucks you right back in when you least expect it.
Throughout Drag Me To Hell you will be frightened, scared, and even get chills. Expect to have your hair stand on end and to be completely shocked as the scares come out of nowhere more times than not. This is truly a scary movie that makes you jump out of your seat and cover your eyes.
