Synopsis (excerpt from If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B-Movie Actor)

“Dear knuckleheads,

So, you just couldn’t get enough carnage and mayhem in the first ”Evil Dead” film, huh? Oh no, you needed more. Well, strap yourselves in and prepare for the “mother of all sequels”. In “Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn” we follow, once again, the misadventures of Ash, the movie world’s most abused hero.

Hit the road, Freddy. Hang it up, Jason. Here comes a modern day zombie killer extraordinaire – ASH! He’s not a cop – No special skills or CIA training for this guy. He’s just a regular schmoe waging war against the walking dead with a sawed-off shotgun, a chainsaw, and a bad attitude. Smarter heroes? There’s plenty. But just hope this guy’s in your corner when the deadites come calling.

I recommend at least one viewing per week to promote health, happiness, and longevity.

Best to ya,

Bruce Campbell”
