Yes, it’s true, Bruce Campbell is back. That said, don’t go getting your Wonder Woman underoos all in a bunch right away. In fact, just cool your jets. Hell, take a deep breath, while you’re at it, too. Yes, the ever loveable Bruce “Don’t Call Me Ash” Campbell is again hitting the spotlight, but before the insane thought even ventures into your cerebral cortex it should be noted that he ain’t announcing, promoting or even mentioning the words Evil Dead IV (or Bubba Ho-Tep II, for that matter).
Instead, what BC is on the road promoting is a new book and a new film. The former is entitled Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way and marks the versatile actor’s second foray into the realm of the literati (he released his first tome, If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor, back in 2002).
The latter (that would be the film, for those of you with faulty short-term memories) is called Man with the Screaming Brain. Written, directed, and produced by Campbell, it’s a genre film that the man himself describes thusly: “Man with the Screaming Brain is a story of greed, betrayal and revenge in the former Eastern European block. William Cole, wealthy industrialist, goes looking for a tax shelter in the wrong part of the world and winds up the guinea pig for a mad scientist, having his brain merged with that of Yegor, a former KGB operative. The two couldn’t be more different, but they share one thing – both were killed by the same woman. William and Yegor form an unlikely partnership to track down their common nemesis. If I were pitching it in Hollywood, I’d say it’s The Out-of-Towners with a brain transplant.”
For those lucky enough to live on the West Coast (the San Francisco Bay area, in particular), Mr. Campbell will be hosting a book signing and film premier in The City on Tuesday June 14th at the venerable Balboa Theater. The film will have four screenings throughout the day: 2:20, 4:30, 7:00 and 9:15. Mr. Campbell will be on hand to sign copies of his book and talk about the film at the evening screenings.
