Bruce Campbell Talks All Things Evil Dead
Slasher flick cult hero Bruce Lorne Campbell embarked on his first foray into film and acting as a teenager at high school in Michigan, where he could be found making Super 8 shorts with his friends, one of whom was future American filmmaker Sam Raimi. The pair continued to work together, later collaborating on the first 30-minute version of the first Evil Dead Film, solidifying a life-long friendship that would spawn the smash hit franchise of legendary undead adventures.
Together Campbell and Raimi would work together on a spectacular array of different films including the Superman seires, Darkman and The Quick and The Done, but none as iconic as their delightfully dark, initially-no budget trailblazer of a film series. Starring as the Evil Dead's central character Ash Williams, Campbell turned his career-defining role into one of the most popular horror anti-heroes of all time. Rude, selfish and very much in touch with his own insanity, Ash is the world's only hope against the Deadites and the nefarious Kandarian demon agenda.
