Creator: Sam Raimi

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 Evil Dead, he also gained a greater level of fame for directing a trilogy of movies based on the long-running Spider-Man comic books.

Raimi is also no stranger to television as well, as he executive produced the syndicated shows Hercules The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess (and, currently, an executive producer on Legend of the Seeker and Spartacus: Blood and Sand). Early on in his career, he was a frequent collaborator with The Coen Brothers: Joel was an assistant editor on The Evil Dead, the three of them wrote Crimewave and The Hudsucker Proxy together, Raimi had cameo apperances in Millers Crossing and Hudsucker, and finally (whew) Raimi directed a montage sequence in the latter.
