I would say Sam Raimi is a master of the genre. His presence, his friendship, his staging, all of that, he was just really, really brilliant. That’s all I can say as it might get me in trouble. It’s pretty crazy, I would say the clue is in the title, it’s the multiverse of madness, they went very far this time.
