He is best known for creating the cult supernatural horror franchise "The Evil Dead"—in which he directed the first three installments (1981–92)—and for directing the original "Spider-Man" trilogy (2002–07) starring Tobey Maguire. He also directed the superhero film "Darkman" (1990), the action western "The Quick and the Dead" (1995), the neo-noir crime-thriller "A Simple Plan" (1998), the supernatural thriller "The Gift" (2000), the supernatural horror film "Drag Me to Hell" (2009), the Disney fantasy adventure "Oz the Great and Powerful" (2013), and the Marvel Cinematic Universe film "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" (2022). Raimi is also a prolific producer of both film and television projects, including notable horror films such as "The Grudge" (2004), "30 Days of Night" (2007), "Don't Breathe" (2016), and "Crawl" (2019), and successful television series such as "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" (1995-99) and its spin-off "Xena: Warrior Princess" (1995-2001). He founded Renaissance Pictures in 1979 and Ghost House Pictures in 2002.
