Hail to the king, baby.

Sam Raimi has the distinct honor of being one of the few director/producers in existence that can actually make films that are campy AND scary at the same time and have them come off as excellent pieces of film. Known mostly for his cult series ''Franchise/EvilDead'', he also gained some notoriety for directing a trilogy based on some obscure comic series known as ''[[Film/{{Spider-Man Trilogy}} Spider-Man]]''.

Raimi is also no stranger to television as well, as he executive produced the syndicated shows ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''XenaWarriorPrincess'' (and, currently, an executive producer on ''LegendOfTheSeeker'' and ''SpartacusBloodAndSand''). Early on in his career, he was a frequent collaborator with Creator/TheCoenBrothers: Joel was an assistant editor on ''The Evil Dead'', the three of them wrote ''Crimewave'' and ''TheHudsuckerProxy'' together, Raimi had cameo apperances in ''MillersCrossing'' and ''Hudsucker'', and finally (whew) Raimi directed a montage sequence in the latter.
