If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor

I’ve seen some terrible B-grade movies in my time (Manos: The Hands of Fate was the absolute worst). But I’ve also seen some very good ones. Bruce Campbell’s involvement pretty much guarantees the latter.If Chins Could Kill is Campbell’s autobiography. He tells of his childhood, his development as an actor and his collaboration with Sam Raimi (who is probably most famous for directing Spider-Man). He covers his work on the Evil Dead trilogy, Xena: Warrior Princess and much more.
It’s not a self-important book. Campbell is clearly happy with the career he has forged for himself and even though he isn’t a superstar he is at least a cult hero. Much like his movies, his book is humorous and engaging.
