On April 26, Monsters HD celebrates a true movie icon with a marathon guaranteed to wake the dead the Bruce Campbell Triple Feature. The Frighfest is Highlighted by the MONSTERS HD PREMIERE of Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn.
Beginning at 8:00PM ET/5:00PM PT/7:00PM C, the mini-marathon features three freaky features certain to have viewers wondering what really goes bump in the night: THE EVIL DEAD, the MONSTERS HD premiere of EVIL DEAD 2: DEAD BY DAWN and BUBBA HO-TEP.
Armed with an over-the-top, campy acting style and the most identifiable chin in Hollywood, Bruce Campbell has, since the early '80s, cemented his B-movie stardom. With director (and high-school pal) Sam Raimi, he originated the role of "Ash" in the Evil Dead trilogy, a trio of unique horror/slapstick films that today are cult classic legends. And though the fan-favorite Campbell has gone on to star in many other films and TV series such as "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.," the horror genre has remained his calling card. Campbell will be starring in the upcoming 2008 film My Name is Bruce, which he directed and co-produced.
