This creative director has won a cult following for his campy horror films Evil Dead (1983), Evil Dead 2 (1987), Darkman (1990), and Army of Darkness (1993). His work reveals his fascination with comic books, The Three Stooges, and horror flicks of the 1930s. He brought the 1960s comic Spider-Man to the big screen in 2002. The film, which starred Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, earned a record-smashing $114 million at the box office on its opening weekend. Also an actor, he has appeared in films such as Intruder (1989) and Indian Summer (1993).
