  Bruce Campbell  
Posted 2001-11-05 by Tony Walsh
Bruce Campbell is North America's most infamous cult movie star. His square-jawed filmography spans two decades, launching with the shlock-horror classic Evil Dead and including such big budget films such as Congo and Escape From L.A. He is also well known for his television roles, most notably the part of Brisco County Junior and Autolycus, King of Thieves from the Hercules and Xena series.

  • I rented Silent Hill 2 for PS2 over the weekend, the sequel to the PSX game. I hadn't played the first game, just watched others play. This one looked similar, although the graphics are stunning. The game play seemed basically the same, and took a loong while to get interesting. Aside from some basic puzzles, I had to resort to the Web for walkthroughs with The Baker telling me what to do next. I can't see how many of these puzzles could be solved without cheating. Anyway, the game is scary, but somewhat tedious. I was more interested in the story moving along than running around the town of Silent Hill in the fog.

  • This is the somewhat inflated intro to my Bruce Campbell interview in November's Exclaim: "His is not a household name. His mug won't open any movies. But Bruce Campbell has made a good living on the fringes of Hollywood. Tony Walsh talks to Campbell about the early days of the Evil Dead, and how Tom Arnold journeyed from hog butcher to McHale's Navy." Umm, yeah... first of all I opened our phone conversation telling Bruce I wasn't going to ask any Evil Dead questions. And Tom Arnold was mentioned in passing. But that's Hollywood, I guess.
