Evil Dead 2 celebrated its 30th Anniversary earlier this week. The remake of the first Evil Dead tamed down the gore and upped the comic element (which seemed more unintentional in the original). The result was an enduring cult classic that made Bruce Campbell a minor mainstream star and an icon of indie horror.
Along with the Evil Dead movies (and Ash vs Evil Dead on Starz), Campbell faced danger and delivered mayhem in films like Bubba Ho-Tep, Maniac Cop, Dark Man, Congo, Escape from LA, and Oz the Great and Powerful. While he doesn’t always win his battles, Campbell consistently gives his all—and he never backs down!
