It was typical for Raimi horror...
Again: how so?
(That's not a rhetorical question, BTW: I would honestly like to know how you see it as typical, since it doesn't seem that way to me)
Have you seen the movie Thinner? It's about a guy who is cursed by a Gypsy, gets thinner, and dies.
This is a movie about somebody who is cursed and Dragged to Hell.
It's just conventional horror movie crap. Often times in horror films, they go for the downbeat "scary ending" even when it's one we see coming miles away. Hence, Typical horror movie ending.
Twin Peaks had a better ending.... It was an unhappy one... But at least it wasn't what we expected. Nor was it simply "Haha hero dies bad guy wins" which, by the way, was what this was. It was a terrible ending that's become too common.
And we all knew it was coming. If you didn't, I really think you should tear up your high school diploma because damn, I really don't think you deserve it.
