Sam Raimi

Samuel Marshall "Sam" Raimi (October 23, 1959) made his way through film school creating low-budget horror films - a skill from which he would benefit for years to come. Now, in the world of horror and fantasy, you can hardly hear a sentence without catching his name. Sam is the proud director of several immensely successful film. His exploits began with directing several low-budget horror flicks, including It's Murder! (1975) and Within the Woods (1977), both starring his close friend and eventual genre star Bruce Campbell. Raimi also created the immensely popular Evil Dead series, Darkman (1990), The Quick and the Dead (1994), and Crimewave (1985), which was written with another up-and-coming brother team, Ethan and Joel Coen. Since then, he's done everything from dramatic romances (1999's For Love of the Game), paranormal mysteries (2000's The Gift), and superhero action-adventure (2002's Spider-Man). He's also acted as executive producer to the popular television series Hercules, the Legendary Journeys and Xena, Warrior Princess with his lifelong friend, Robert Tapert. Although not an actor, Sam has also occasionally appeared in several movies, including Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except (1985) and William Lustig's Maniac Cop (1987). His plans for the future include going back to his independent roots and filming another low-budget picture with his childhood buddies Campbell and Tapert.
