A good-enough, and frequently amusing, bio-ramble.

A must-read for any Bruce Campbell fan. It's less a memoir than it is a guidebook for new actors punctuated by a series of illustrations from his life and career. Great fun.

Bruce's earnest and irreverent voice comes through in this amusing memoir that just about brings his story up-to-date. It's all here: life in rural Oregon, making B movies for SciFi channel, making Burn Notice, remaking Evil Dead. Bruce is that guy with dozens of funny stories that will keep you entertained for hours and still want more.

I got the bug to read this when I watched The Evil Dead with Bruce Campbell’s commentary and I thought “man, this guy is witty. I bet his writing’s good.” So I picked up this book and it’s just as funny as Bruce himself. The guy’s too genuine.

Bruce Campbell gives us his memoir/biography of his life up to 2002. That includes memories of growing up, meeting Sam Raimi, doing stupid little Super-8 movies together, and eventually the Evil Dead franchise and what it was like to make that. If you care more about Evil Dead than Bruce Campbell, you might want to watch the DVD extra features and documentaries (I especially recommend “Medieval Times – The Making of Army of Darkness“, which is free on YouTube). But if you want to read a biography of an actor who really pounds the pavement for his work (I was appalled he had to make cold calls begging for investment money) and other stories of the life of an actor who doesn’t get the mansions and endorsements, then this is it. This is the story Hollywood doesn’t want you to know.

I think he’s written more, but I’m not sure if I’ll pick up anything else by him. He kinda told the story he wanted to tell. It contained the most important parts–Evil Dead, Brisco County Jr., Hercules–and I wonder what else there is to tell. But we’ll see.
