Sam Raimi Takes Alison Lohman To Hell… We Hope

alisonlohman Sam Raimi Takes Alison Lohman To Hell... We HopeAlison Lohman has replaced Ellen Page in Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell.

We first reported last week that Page had dropped out due to “scheduling conflicts”.

Luckily for Raimi, Lohman was available to star in the film that’s based on a script which he wrote with his brother Ivan fifteen years ago. The movie begins shooting on March 31st, two weeks after it’s planned start date.

The rush was on to get an actress for the film as Ghost House Pictures and Mandate Pictures wanted to get the film in the can before the possible SAG strike in June.

Lohman’s film credits include Robert Zemeckis’ Beowulf, Ridley Scott’s Matchstick Men and Tim Burton’s Big Fish. Not a bad list of directors to have on your resume!

However, Lohman doesn’t have the current buzz of Juno star Ellen Page, and you have to wonder how that will affect the film’s financial prospects or even its funding.

That said, I’m sure that Drag Me To Hell will be sold as “From the director of The Evil Dead and Spider-Man“.

The main question is: Did Ellen Page really walk away because the script sucked, or was she really too busy to film Sam Raimi’s return to the horror genre?

Either way, I’m sure that Raimi will deliver a film that’s horrific. Let’s just hope he does it intentionally!

  1. Does anyone care about this film?
    I for one couldn’t be less interested.

    You want to see Hell, just visit Downtown Los Angeles at 6th Street and Broadway around 10pm.

  2. Alsion Lohman always looks like she’s 15, but she’s in her late 20s by now. She’s a great actress who has been typecast as a teenager too often. Let’s hope this helps her out.


  3. Dude, have you never seen the Evil Dead movies and Army of Darkness?


  4. Boy who pays 10 bucks to be dragged into hell.
    I mean come on arnt we all trying to avoid that place?
    This title sure makes me write negative posts.
    How fitting….

    Sam Raimis name on this only angers me.


    Niall, I was expecting a Sarrah Connor finale review instead this dumb film keeps annoying me.


  5. Yes to both questions.

    So is Bruce Campbell in this film because the supporting actress thread is really boring me to death.

  6. want to get email Alison Lohman
