Trailers make us laugh. They make us cry. They work so hard to make us happy. Trailer Probe rates the geek explosion content, how much it combusts your cortex with a volley of geekitude, and dork disengagement level is reasons you won't dig it.

And you would never know it. And then a gypsy would send you to hell.
Justin Long is in every movie.
He won an essay contest. "Why I Want To Play Random Guy #2 In Every Freaking Movie," By Justin Long.
Bruce Campbell appears to not be in it. Where is Bruce Campbell? I demand to know the location of Bruce Campbell.

Maybe Justin Long gets the hoodoo put on him. That would be fun.
This scary-curse lady is hands-on. I respect that. Most of the scary-curse people just whomp up the cursification and stand back. But this lady gets after it.
That lady's eye is not just crazy. It's crazy awesome.
GAAAAAH! The scene in the bed got me. You win, Drag Me To Hell.
Geek explosion level: 700,000 geek parts per million. 600,000 of that is for the crazy eye.
