Any film director that didn’t start off making horror films or have roots in horror rarely jumps into the genre. Why is that? The answer could be a multitude of reasons, but quite possibly the primary reason is because horror is not exactly their cup of tea so to speak. But we can dream, can’t we?

Sam Raimi is probably one of the most beloved genre filmmakers. He is often categorized as a horror director, even though he has only directed five films that fit the genre (six if you want to count Darkman). Raimi is the creator of the Evil Dead franchise, director of the Spider-Man trilogy (2000's), and the co-founder of Ghost House Pictures. The man is a wild-card filmmaker, whose name has been attached to many distinct products over the years.
