Actor, producer, and author Bruce Campbell has been in a lot of movies that I’ve enjoyed, like the Evil Dead movie franchise, which is now a TV show on Starz Channel (Ash vs. Evil Dead). But perhaps my favorite is Bubba Ho-Tep, in which Campbell stars as an aged Elvis Presley confined to a retirement home and menaced by an ancient Egyptian mummy. It has all the usual elements of a Bruce Campbell production: off-kilter premise, quotable dialogue, supernatural beings. Check it out.
You can catch Bruce in Columbus at the Book Loft on Saturday, August 26, when he’ll discuss and sign his new book Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B-Movie Actor. This is the follow-up to If Chins Could kill:Confessions of a B-Movie Actor and a companion to Make Love! The Bruce Campbell Way.
