More Pleasant Alternatives to Drag Me to Hell

At least they sound more pleasant.

Take Me to Lunch

Drive Me to the Country

Dance Me to the Bathroom

Row Me to the Other Side of the Lake

Write Me Into Your New Novel

Sing Me to Sleep

On the subject of the actual film, I’m somewhat bothered by its title. Though I suppose it could be explained away in the same manner as I did with phrases like “fuck you” and “bless you,” the title still sounds wrong to me. Presumably, the girl in the poster (the Alison Lohman character) is the one being dragged to hell, but if that’s the case, then she would never speak the title outside the context of something like “That horrible monster wants to drag me to hell.” As titles go, however, I suppose That Horrible Monster Wants to Drag Me to Hell is somewhat clunky.

I’m eager to see how producers use any of my ideas for the sequel to Drag Me to Hell, which, I’m sure, will exist some day.

  1. Maybe the sequel will be "Drag Me to Purgatory."
