The man who produced The Evil Dead and Xena on bringing Pleasure Dome to NZ



Simon Pound writes:

What do The Evil Dead, Xena, Spartacus and an immersive 80s extravaganza live theatre spectacular have in common? If you guessed Rob Tapert, you’ve got the chocolate fish.

It’s very exciting to get a chance to talk to a person who’s brought jobs and about a billion dollars of overseas investment to New Zealand. He’s helped build an industry and inspire local film and TV.

Which is no mean feat, especially when you’re doing it on the other side of the world from his native America. That’s the kind of extra challenge that Tapert has thrived on and had a track record of pulling off. The latest of these is Pleasure Dome. To find out about what that is and about show business, Rob joined me in conversation in a secret location in West Auckland.

‘Evil Dead’ icon Bruce Campbell loves his fans, but he knows they're not always right



The actor, on tour with his new memoir, brings “Last Fan Standing” game show to Salt Lake City.

For Bruce Campbell, who’s gone from iron-jawed B-movie icon to journeyman actor and back, fan love comes in cycles.

“You have the whole new generation now,” Campbell said this week, on the way to Austin, Texas, as part of a 35-city book tour. “You have kids who are 18 going, ‘I saw you as Coach Boomer in “Sky High” at age 9,’ or ‘I watched you on “Xena” or “Hercules” on Saturdays when I was 10.’”

A lot of fans know Campbell for the role that first made him famous: Ash, the chainsaw-wielding demon killer in “The Evil Dead,” the 1981 horror movie he made with his boyhood buddies, director Sam Raimi and producer Rob Tapert.

He returned to the role for the TV series “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” which debuted on Starz in 2015. (The third season has been shot, Campbell said, and he and Tapert are awaiting approval from Starz for a fourth.)

Hail to the chin, baby



Cult actor Bruce Campbell to visit Alamo Drafthouse

He may not command the salary of Tom Cruise or Leonardo DiCaprio, but for a large percentage of moviegoers, he is just as essential to the history of cinema. He is Bruce Campbell, the self-proclaimed B-movie and TV actor with more than one hundred IMDB credits, and he is this generation’s Robert Mitchum: tall, physically imposing and professional; only Campbell does slapstick a hell of a lot better than Mitchum ever could.

Known primarily for his turn as Ash — the hapless Michigander who recited a passage from the Necronomicon and awoke the evil dead — Campbell has found a wide variety of success in film (Bubba Ho-Tep and The Man With the Screaming Brain) and television (Hercules, Xena: Warrior Princess and Burn Notice); as an author (his current book, Hail to the Chin, debuted at number eight on The New York Times best-sellers list) and now as the game show host of Last Fan Standing.

The untold truth of Evil Dead



More than 35 years after the release of its low-budget, outrageous, and audacious first installment in 1981, The Evil Dead is still alive. With four movies and a TV series under its banner, the Evil Dead franchise has rightly earned a reputation as the little horror series that could. From its DIY beginnings at the hands of a few aspiring filmmakers to its serialized tenure on Starz, here's how the crazy, campy, chainsaw-happy Evil Dead went from the backwoods of Michigan to the delirious nightmares of horror fans worldwide.

A New Book Will Tell You If Your Favorite Hero Should Actually Be Dead



From io9.gizmodo.com:

We’ve all watched a movie where a character gets hurt and thought “They’d never survive that in real life.” Well, a new book will put that to the test with some super gruesome and awesome drawings.

It’s called Ain’t Got Time To Bleed and it’s written by Andrew Shaffer. He takes 29 of your favorite movie heroes, and villains, breaks down their injuries, and attempts to figure out if they would have actually survived the movie or not.

Bruce Campbell - Hail to the Chin - Book Tour - Oklahoma City - 9/11/2017



The always great and classy Bruce Campbell stopped through Oklahoma City on his "Hail to the Chin" book tour, making time for a nice Q&A, filled with classic Bruce charm and smarm. This was a surprisingly well organized event, I'm not sure if that was due to the efforts of Full Circle Book Store or Bruce's competent staff, but it was much appreciated (especially those of us with small children), and the value... two signatures and a quick meet and greet with Bruce for the retail price of the book. You won't find a deal like that at any Comic Con. This was a great event all around, please enjoy this Q&A.
