It took Daily News columnist Elmer Smith several years to start talking to me again after I recommended he see "Darkman," but I still think it's one of Sam Raimi's best movies. In conjunction with the opening today of Raimi's "Drag Me to Hell," here are his top five flicks.

1. "Darkman." (1990)

2. "Spider-Man." (2002)

3. "Spider-Man 2." (2004)

4. "Evil Dead." (1981)

5. "Evil Dead 2." (1987)
