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).
