In the Independent Reviews site Bruce Campbell talks about the EVIL DEAD re-releases, his latest film Running Time and Lavender farming. Bruce is probably the best looking geek I've ever met. He's tall, dark and handsome, yet goofy and approachable.

With films like REPO MAN, STRAIGHT TO HELL, WALKER and FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS to his credit, he would appear to be a cynical American white boy filmmaker. But looks, as they say, are usually deceiving. Born in England in 1954 Cox studied at UCLA on a Fullbright where he won two Jack Nicholson Awards for screenwriting.…
