Where it all began the Legendary Pairing... Sam and Bruce
We first saw Bruce star as the epic cult character Ashley J "Ash" Williams in The Evil Dead, Sam Raimi's earliest film. A low budget horror flick that became one of the biggest cult movies of our time. He supported his friend Sam by not only starring in the film but also working on the camera. The Evil Dead series continued to prosper as the cult following grew behind the epic Horror film. Sam would be Bruce's Golden Fleece as film after film grew his popularity; the pairing would be as epic as George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg. Following on from Evil Dead Bruce would star in the sequels to follow Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness. The pair would go on to work on the legendary series Xena, Warrior Princess and Hercules as well as short but hilarious appearances for Bruce in the Spider-Man series. It is often said you cannot throw a rock in a Sam Raimi movie without hitting Bruce or Sam's brother, Ted.
