Description

"Campbell is an amusing raconteur, sharing stories about shooting the indie film My Name Is Bruce in his backyard, working on his old friend Sam Raimi's Spiderman movies, and spending seven seasons on Burn Notice. . . . Campbell is always entertaining, and his smart-ass style makes for a groovy ride. . . . Fans will eagerly await a sequel." --Publishers Weekly

"Die-hard fans will embrace it as canon..." --The Washington Post

"Whether recounting his life in the boondocks of south Oregon or the making of the dud The Man with the Screaming Brain in Bulgaria, Campbell, backed by co-author Sanborn, and his B-movie anecdotes, are thoroughly engaging and witty." --Booklist

"Campbell sheds further light on the (decidedly unglamorous) existence of a B-list actor, and fans of his work will undoubtedly be excited to read more from the enigmatic movie star.... Chock-full of amusing anecdotes about the underappreciated B-list movie industry. Hand to admirers of Campbell's previous book and fans of the talkies." --Library Journal

"A breezy read through a breezy life." --Kirkus Reviews

"Much like his Campbell's on-screen presence, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor is wildly vivacious. As he explains in the book's prologue, Campbell sees his memoirs as a trilogy. If If Chins Could Kill was the hero's origin story, then Hail to the Chin represents the second act." --Broke Horror Fan

Praise for If Chins Could Kill
"The book offers insights into the world of independent filmmaking and the life of a "B" actor, but most importantly it succeeds as an evocative memoir that allows the reader to know Campbell."--School Library Journal

"An insightful and rant-filled guide to being almost famous."--GQ

"Exceptionally literate yet conversational, wide-ranging but never wandering, and copiously, gleefully illustrated..." --Booklist

"entertaining and witty...Forecast: While a boon to film cultists and to Campbell's many fans, this book also has enough insights and smarts to appeal to readers with a serious interest in popular culture."--Publishers Weekly

"Campbell forgoes Hollywood anecdotes for more entertaining tales of struggling to break into the biz (even after Evil Dead II, he had to work security). With a quirky assortment of rants, as well as self-deprecating chapter titles like "The Higher the Budget, the Lower the Part," he's like the dinner guest you wish would never leave."--Entertainment Weekly

"This book is indispensable to anyone aspiring to a career as an actor, director, producer, or just about any other aspect of movie making...A fast, enjoyable read that is sure to garner Campbell even more of a following."--Fangoria
