chinHail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor by Bruce Campbell with Craig Sanborn

—–

Have you read If Chins Could Kill? If not, then this book isn’t for you. It picks up where that book concludes, telling the second half of Bruce Campbell’s career as a B-Movie actor. Starting here would be unwise, since the bulk of what made Bruce Campbell a B-Movie star is covered in that book.

Also, if you haven’t read If Chins Could Kill, then you’re missing out on an entertaining yarn. It’s not the most well-written memoir on the market, but it’s honest, self-effacing, and a little bit egotistical (in other words, it’s Pure Bruce). Hail to the Chin is written in that same style, complemented with the snarky pictures that made his previous book even more entertaining. It focuses on his life as an Oregonian home-owner, his time making Burn Notice and The Man with the Screaming Brain (among other, lesser-known shows and movies), and takes us up to the revival of Evil Dead with the Starz show Ash vs. Evil Dead. It is, true to its subtitle, further confessions of what it takes to be a B-Movie actor.

Do yourself a favor and read this book, but only if you’ve already read If Chins Could Kill. If you haven’t do yourself an additional favor and read that book first.
