What was the last Bruce Campbell movie you saw? Was it the one where they were trapped in a snowed in airport and one of them was an alien? Was it the one where he may or may not be Elvis and fights a zombie pharaoh? Maybe it was one of hismany cameos?
The last film in which I saw Bruce Campbell be anything but a reflection of what Bruce Campbell once was, was actually the single film that made Bruce Campbell what he was in the first place. It seems as though he has been riding an image for decades now while the people who actually made the single franchise that gave him any cred at all are off to doing bigger, better things. Sometimes they throw him a bone, sure, but where is the work for this guy that everyone seems to think is the greatest actor ever born?
AICN posted this one-sheet today for a film made in 2007 that has been struggling for almost a year to find a distributor:
It’s one of those films where the main character is actually the actor himself and is sought out by people who don’t get that it isn’t really him doing those things in the movies he’s made and he has to bungle his way through what he’s only done on set to save the day.
The trailer looks fine. It is definitly camp, and it is cool that Campbell is making fun of himself, but haven’t we done this already?
Actually, where the hell is my Brisco County Jr. ??
