10 years of Flick Filosopher: his name is Bruce

It looks like Bruce Campbell will not be appearing in Bubba Nosferatu, but we’ll always have its prequel, and Campbell’s inspired performance. From my review of Bubba Ho-Tep:

This may be the pinnacle of Campbell’s cult-serious career, which as far as I can tell encompasses only one other role so far, but I bet there’s more to come. We all know the goofy stuff he’s done — the Evil Deads and the Brisco Countys and the Tornado!s — and he’s done some straight-serious stuff, too, like on TV’s Homicide. But other than the demon he played, intensely and balefully, on The X-Files, I don’t think Campbell has taken what could have been a throwaway genre role to this point of earnest solemnity. He plays Elvis here, and that’s funny, of course — how could it not be? — but Campbell is also touchingly poignant. Who’da thunk?
