Bruce Campbell's Quotes

  • There is a large element of me in every role I do. Actors who say they can dive inside a character are either schizophrenic or lying.
  • [When asked what he would want with him if stuck on a deserted island] "A continent."
  • [about Assault on Dome 4 (1996) and Moontrap (1989)]: The movies that are the easiest to make are the hardest to watch.
  • [about his fans] Thanks for being very loyal . . . they're very well-informed and they're very loyal. Tell 'em I'll need them on that opening weekend.
  • [About the Evil Dead trilogy] For me, the first film was frankly about learning how to act. I can watch [The Evil Dead (1981)] from about halfway on without cringing . . . When Army of Darkness (1992) came around, we decided to make a different type of movie altogether and made an action-adventure picture with the same imbecile.
