A SIMPLE PLAN
(Director) received international acclaim as director for his
ultra-low budget horror film "The Evil Dead," an immediate
hit at the Cannes Film Festival. Following up that success, Raimi
wrote and directed "The Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn,"
a sequel that firmly established his mastery of the horror genre
here in the U.S. From that beginning, Raimi has shown an impressive
versatility, directing the outrageously comic fantasy "Army
of Darkness," the sci-fi thriller "Darkman," starring
Liam Neeson, and the western, "The Quick and the Dead,"
with Leonardo DiCaprio, Sharon Stone and Gene Hackman.
An accomplished writer of horror and fantasy, Raimi's other writing
credits include the Coen Brothers' corporate satire "The
Hudsucker Proxy," starring Paul Newman, Tim Robbins and Jennifer
Jason Leigh, "Army of Darkness" and the pilot for "M.A.N.T.I.S."
When he isn't directing or writing, Raimi is busy executive producing
the blockbuster syndicated series "Xena: Warrior Princess"
and "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys." He also executive
produced the feature films "Hard Target" and "Timecop,"
starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
