Fun Movie -- but Definitely Mostly for Bruce Campbell Fans
on June 22, 2013
I"m a so-so fan of Bruce Campbell....he does some awesome work and I've enjoyed him in several movies and TV series (he's fantastic in Burn Notice, for example). He's also done some stuff that isn't so excellent, and that's what THIS movie is a friendly spoof of.
Bruce Campbell plays himself here, as the only "expert monster hunter" a teen-aged fan of his movies can think of to help their town battle an ancient curse. He's a rather stereotypical and shallow guy in this movie, an over-the-top B-grade actor more interested in scoring than being responsible for anything.
It's a fun enough ride, a spoof of many of his B-grade movies with lots of inside jokes for the hard core B.C fans. The special effects are schlocky but that's part of the charm and the spoof; it doesn't detract from the fun at all.
I do think that folks who are NOT Bruce Campbell fans won't really be terribly impressed or think much of the movie, but for those who are it's great fun. Recommended for Bruce Campbell fans and anybody who enjoys campy "horror" movies.
