Movies Directed By Sam Raimi You May Not Know About

If you don’t know who Sam Raimi is by now than you are probably just an old turd –  or you just watch a movie because it looks good and not because of who directed it.  But who does that?  Which means you are probably just an old turd.  Don’t you worry, there’s a cure for that.  So listen up you primitive screwheads because I’m going to write you the prescription.

First off, Mr. Sam Raimistein is famous for directing The Evil Dead trilogy:  deadites, chainsaws, and Ash…housewares.

This is not to be confused with Evil Dead, directed by , that comes to theaters April 5, 2013 (Though he did produce it).

Still not ringing a bell?  Sam Raimi is probably most famous for directing the original Spider-Man trilogy.

Side note – how old does that make me feel that I have to write original Spider-Man trilogy so you know what I’m referring to?  Another side note – it appears that Raimi loves a franchise.  Another side side note – I tend to state the obvious.

But there are quite a few movies directed by Raimi that you’ve probably seen but had no idea he was responsible for it:
