Bruce Campbell on the horror franchise that launched his career: 'All roads lead to "Evil Dead" '

Bruce Campbell is currently starring in USA's top-rated spy romp "Burn Notice" as the wisecracking Sam Axe, but for some fans, he'll always be Ash, the beloved hero of Sam Raimi's cult favorite "Evil Dead" trilogy: 1981's "The Evil Dead," 1987's "Evil Dead II" and 1992's "Army of Darkness." Precisely for those ardent enthusiasts, Anchor Bay has just released the original film in the series on Blu-ray featuring two new HD transfers that were supervised by Raimi himself. Consequently, the thriller about a group of unsuspecting friends vacationing at a remote cabin in the woods who inadvertently unleash an ancient demonic force has never looked better. Campbell, Raimi and producer Rob Tapert also teamed up for a new commentary track that details how three young guys from Michigan launched one of modern horror's most enduring franchises -- it involved a lot of fake blood and equal amounts of sweat and tears. Campbell recently took time out of his "Burn Notice" shooting schedule to speak with Hero Complex's Gina McIntyre about what it was like to revisit his past and to speculate about whether he's likely to pick up that boomstick once more (spoiler alert: prospects don't look good).
