Lorna Raver as Sylvia Ganush in 'Drag Me to Hell'

It took a special someone to pull off the terrifying one-eyed gypsy with really bad teeth in Sam Raimi's smart, scary return to horror. Raver was a study in hellish intensity -- with her claw-like grasp, her eye-popping, um, eyes and that horribly diseased mouth, sometimes pleading, mostly screaming, always open. Yes the make-up was tripping, but it was Raver who gave Ganush her very black soul.
