Episode Description: Our Month of Horrors Extravaganza continues this week as we discuss 2009’s Drag Me to Hell, directed by Sam Raimi. Alison Lohman stars as a meek loan officer who angers the wrong old lady and winds up with an ancient Gyspy curse. She has three days to figure out how to stop it before she’s dragged to…well, you know. Raimi is back in Evil Dead mode here, but is this a true return to form? All we know for sure is that we never need to see anything enter or leave Lohman’s mouth again for as long as we live.

Summer Blockbuster!?! is a podcast featuring InRO Editor-in-Chief Luke Gorham and Bradley University film professor Steve Warner. The duo look to tackle films each episode which received wide releases during the competitive summer movie season, but which had no sensible reason for such a rollout. And sometimes they cheat and don’t abide by this framework at all. A new episode will be posted each Friday from the beginning of May until the end of October, moving to a bi-weekly posting schedule after. Catch up on past episodes right here, and subscribe through Spotify, the iTunes Store, or for Android.
