Sam Raimi hates his work

'Drag Me to Hell' director Sam Raimi is appalled by the "disgusting" tastes of horror movie fams

Sam Raimi is disgusted by his films.

The movie director - whose latest horror film 'Drag Me to Hell' stars Alison Lohman, Lorna Raver and Justin Long - is appalled by the extreme effects needed to keep the audience entertained these days.

He said: "Alison Lohman swallowed a lot of fluids on this movie. It's disgusting what the audience wants nowadays. It's really sad. I am ashamed and embarrassed by the crowd these days."

The 49-year-old director - who is also behind the 'Spider-Man' trilogy - insists that nothing about the film industry is glamorous.

He explained: "I almost died of cold making 'The Evil Dead'. My hands were covered in Karo syrup, which I used for the pus and blood effects, I was freezing and I couldn't even load the film. It was a nightmare."

Despite his cinematic achievements, Sam says he still gets a thrill from watching the latest horror films at the movies with the general public.

He said: "I want to be able to hear them gasping loudly. My favourite part of horror movies is screaming together and laughing together."

'Drag Me to Hell' - which is about a female banker placed under a curse by an elderly Slavic woman - is due for release on May 27.
