Book Review: Bruce Campbell’s Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor

In 2002, Bruce Campbell - who needs no introduction to horror fans - released his first memoir, If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor. The best-selling autobiography details his arduous journey to becoming a cult actor, with a heavy focus on the beloved Evil Dead franchise and the knowledge of low budget filmmaking he acquired along the way. In the 15 years since the book’s released, Campbell has continued to traverse his way through the Hollywood system, including a supporting role on the hit show Burn Notice and returning to the Evil Dead universe with Ash vs Evil Dead.

Needless to say, Campbell has garnered more than enough life experiences to fill a second memoir. Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor chronicles the last decade and a half of Campbell’s life, from movies to TV, from Hollywood to independent, from conventions to home life. Unlike his first book, Campbell shares the byline with Craig Sanborn. Campbell lovingly refers to the co-author as his “indentured artist,” as Sanborn handles all of Campbell’s graphic art needs - including many of the images that accompany the text in the book. A longtime friend and collaborator, Sanborn is the perfect person to help put the actor’s storied career to paper.
