After increasingly dangerous and criminal missions, Michael comes face to face with the man who burned him and the one closest to him who knew about it all along. 

Those who have come to love Bruce Campbell as Sam Axe on Burn Notice may not know about his huge fan base from years of starring in cult classics like Evil Dead and Bubba Ho-tep. What is it about this quirky guy that draws crowds to his films and made his autobiography a best seller? We will take a look at some of Campbell’s biggest cult hits, leading up to his run on Burn Notice

The Evil Dead (1981)


Bruce Campbell starred in The Evil Dead very early on in his acting career. Campbell played the lead role of Ash, one of five teenage friends who traveled to the woods, and unknowingly released a hoard of flesh eating monsters upon the community. The film received mixed reviews upon its release, but later became a camp classic, due in part to its over the top gore and violence. 

Maniac Cop (1988)

1988 boosted Bruce’s cult status once again as he scored another starring role, this time portraying young cop Jack Forrest. The film follows Jack’s story as he is falsely accused of murdering innocent people and sets out to try to find the true Maniac Cop before he strikes again. The film later spawned two sequels, despite the fact that it was panned by critics at the time of its release. 

Crimewave (1985)

Crimewave is a 1985 slapstick crime comedy, in which Campbell plays Renaldo "The Heel", a man trying to purchase the Trend-Odegard Security company. The film’s plot revolves around a pair of cartoon-like killers who are hired to kill Odegard to stop him from selling the company to Renaldo. Due to their garish nature, the pair’s crimes pan out in a hilarious fashion, making this weird crime comedy a big hit with fans of cult films. 

Escape from L.A. (1996)

John Carpenter’s Escape from L.A. was released in 1996 to mixed reviews. Campbell plays a smaller role in this film, the Surgeon General of Beverly Hills, but that doesn’t mean that he went unnoticed by fans of his campy, cult classics! Escape from L.A. takes place in 2013, when earthquakes have turned L.A. into an island of the damned, and something has gone wrong within America’s new moral order, as the President's daughter has stolen a doomsday device and fled to L.A., leaving it up to one man to find the President's daughter and retrieve the device before its too late. 

Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)

Bubba Ho-tep is a 2002 comedy horror film starring Campbell as Elvis Presley — now a resident in a nursing home. In the film, Elvis’ only friend is an African American man who claims to be JFK. Eventually, the two must fight for the souls of their fellow residents as they battle an ancient Egyptian Mummy. The film received generally positive reviews, and fans loved it for its absurdly entertaining story line.
