Really Big Payback

If you're the kind of person whose appetite for retribution was whetted rather than satisfied by Bernie Madoff's guilty plea this morning, and if the news of the huge jump in foreclosures has you gunning for banks, we've got a little something for you.

"Drag Me To Hell", a new movie by Sam Raimi, the director of the "Spiderman" and "Evil Dead" trilogies. Hell's plot centers around a young bank employee (Alison Lohman) who forecloses on a home owned by a frail old woman. In response, the crone saddles Lohman with a curse that somehow involves demons, flies in the mouth, mud, bearded dudes with accents and Justin Long. Can you think of better punishment?

Somewhat scary trailer after the jump.
