Date of Birth:23 October 1959, Royal Oak, Michigan, USA

Height:5' 11" (1.8 m)

Trademarks:[The Three Stooges] He uses Stooge-like sequences in many of his movies (especially in the Evil Dead films). Raimi is a huge fan of The Three Stooges. He made many super-8 films that resembled classic Stooge shorts. [Shemp] Often credits a character called a "Shemp", another homage to The Three Stooges. Most frequently, it is a "Fake Shemp", a reference to the Three Stooges shorts where a stuntman was used in place of Shemp Howard. Often has a voice-over from a principal character at the end of his films (Army of Darkness (1992), all the Spider-Man films). On-going in-joke feud with Wes Craven Frequently casts Bruce Campbell, James Franco, J.K. Simmons, and his brother Ted Raimi. Kinetic, wild camera movement (Includes the Evil Dead and Spider-Man films) Likes the "whip pan", possibly inspired by Martin Scorsese Frequently figures out difficult shots by "reverse motion acting" (filming the actor acting backwards and playing in reverse). Usually wears a jacket and tie on the set of his films, a tribute to Alfred Hitchcock. Often includes scenes in his movies in which large clocks/clock towers play important parts (The Quick and the Dead (1995), Spider-Man 2 (2004)). Always has his car (a yellow 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 dubbed "the classic") somewhere visible to the audience in all of his films (including a modified covered wagon, according to Bruce Campbell, in The Quick and the Dead (1995)). It is even visible in the Spider-Man (2002) trailer (the car that Spider-Man jumps on). [POV] Often features a shot from the point-of-view of the villain/monster (The Dark Spirit in the Evil Dead films, the camera view of Dr. Octopus' mechanical tentacles in Spider-Man 2 (2004), the black blob from outer space in Spider-Man 3 (2007)). Often collaborates with the Coen Brothers Supernatural and fantasy themes Bloody but comical set pieces Known for inflicting physical violence on main characters either with large violent scenes or smaller ones throughout. Known for humorously "abusing" actors, i.e, hitting them with tree branches to simulate getting hit with debris, throwing popcorn at them. Frequently films scenes in which a main character is on the receiving end of an extremely brutal attack References to classic comedy films, horror films and the works of Alfred Hitchcock Unflinchingly graphic and brutal depiction of violence His characters are often ordinary individuals caught up in extraordinary circumstances Often has a character who has a bad temper: Peyton Westlake in Darkman (1990), Peter Parker in Spider-Man 3 (2007), Theodora in Oz the Great and Powerful (2013). Close up or zoom into a character's eyes or mouth before said character is attacked or inflicted/inflicting pain.
