Some directors make low-budget horror films because they love the excitement, the transgression, and the lack of boundaries that are inherent in working with such an unregulated arena; some directors make low-budget features in the hope of creating a calling card for their skill and work their way up into big-budget, mainstream filmmaking. And there are those rare occasions when someone works in low-budget horror, gains the notoriety and mainstream success, and comes back to low-budget horror simply because they still love it. Sam Raimi is one of those rare occasions.

The Raimi name is synonymous of horror of course, but that is in large part because of Sam. He's a big name these days in director circles. There's another Raimi out there though that has plugged his face into many a background scene; that would be Sam's brother, Ted.
