Sam Raimi Returns to Horror Film Roots With 'Drag Me to Hell'

Raimi's five children are ages 15, 12, 10, 5 and 2, and all are "vocal" movie critics, according to their father. The kind of advice he gets from them: "You have to get a better performance! Why did you put the camera there?" Three of his children (daughter Emma Rose and sons Lorne and Henry) appeared as extras in "Spider-Man 3" during the movie's climactic final battle.

Raimi, a self-avowed comic book geek, said, "I felt I really knew Peter Parker's character inside and out ... admired him and looked up to him."

He is tight-lipped about any speculation on "Spider-Man 4" and would not respond to questions about whether the new villain will be a vampire, simply saying, "I'm not at liberty to discuss it."

Critics' praising or panning his work concerns him but is not a priority. What will always be important to Raimi is the viewer. "I live and die by audience reactions," he said. "They're the people I have to please."
