Before instructing two of best superhero movies ever madeSam Raimi directed one of the best superhero movies ever made. Dark man, Raimi’s first foray into major studio films, was a cult classic out of the box. His opera about preserving your dignity in the midst of personal and financial ruin is a gonzo version of Tim Burton’s Batman.

Still, as long as it’s not “horror,” he says, he’d be pretty down for something if the script is good.

And all this contradicts that fact [spoiler alert] at the end of Dark man, Neeson switched his face with Bruce Campbell’s chin. “Bruce Campbell is Dark manHas a pretty good sound over it. We would like to read that. Very.
