From Texas Frightmare Weekend: “We’re excited to welcome prolific director/producer/writer/actor Sam Raimi to Texas Frightmare Weekend 2019!
Sam Raimi first came to the attention of film fans with the horror film saga, The Evil Dead. From his childhood, Raimi was a fan of the cinema and, before he was ten-years-old, he was out making movies with an 8mm camera. He was a devoted fan of The Three Stooges, so much of Raimi’s film work in his teens was slapstick comedy based around what he had observed from “Stooges” movies.
As a director, Raimi’s films include Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness, Darkman, The Quick and the Dead, A Simple Plan, For Love of the Game, and The Gift. In 2002, Raimi was given a real opportunity to demonstrate his dynamic visual style with the big-budget film adaptation of the Stan Lee comic book superhero, Spider-Man. The movie was a runaway success at the box office. He also returned for the sequels, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. Raimi returned to horror with Drag Me to Hell in 2009, and in 2013 he directed the Walt Disney film Oz the Great and Powerful.
As a producer, Raimi is responsible for multiple hit TV and film projects including Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Jack of All Trades, Xena: Warrior Princess, The Grudge, Boogeyman, 30 Days of Night, Don’t Breathe, and Ash vs Evil Dead.
Sam joins previously announced EVIL DEAD guests Bruce Campbell, Ted Raimi, and Lee Majors.”
