If someone were to tell you that the original Spider-Man trilogy was linked to The Evil Dead films you probably wouldn't believe them... except Sam Raimi did just that. Before he was the director of Spider-Man, Sam Raimi was known as the twisted mind behind The Evil Dead franchise and he loves to remind you of that. (He also directed another twisted superhero film).
Did you catch All The Evil Dead referneces hidden in The Spider-Man movies?
Bruce Campbell aka the one and only 'Ash Williams' has appeared in all three Spider-Man films, and as a different character each time. Did you spot all three cameos?Great reference?
Turns out both 'Ash' and 'Uncle Ben' drive the same 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88! The Oldsmobile actually belongs to Sam Raimi and has actually appeared in most of his films to date.Great reference?
The chainsaw and The Evil Dead franchise go hand in hand (quite literally). The infamous 'deadite' killing weapon makes an apperance in Spider-Man 2 when 'Doctor Octopus' attacks the operating room.Great reference?
The evil "alter ego" is a frequent theme in the Evil Dead films, specifically with 'Ash' as the forces of evil try to lure him to the darkness. The scene of 'Norman Osborn' speaking to his 'evil' self in the mirror mimics the Evil Dead II when Ash is mocked by his mirror doppelgänger.Great reference?
