Eight college students traveling to Florida for Spring Break stumble into a remote town in Georgia where they are set upon by the residents who are out to avenge their deaths by Union troops over 100 years earlier during the Civil War.
Four teenage kids from the tiny mining town of Gold Lick vandalize a nineteenth-century cemetery of Chinese laborers when one of them disturbs a demon who's been guarding the souls of 100 workers killed in a cave-in. Jeff, the surviving teen, goes in search of his hero, over-the-hill B-movie star, Bruce Campbell. Jeff kidnaps the actor and brings him to Gold Lick to save the town. Bruce thinks it's a birthday treat engineered by his agent, so he plays along, humoring the townsfolk and chatting up Jeff's unimpressed mom. Bodies pile up as the demon slashes. What will the sorry, boozy Bruce do when he realizes that Guan-Di, the demon, is for real? Written by
As of this writing, I've only seen the "work in-progress" version at the CineVegas film festival. But for a work in-progress, it was amazing.
"My Name Is Bruce" is pretty much a movie for Bruce Campbell fans. It contains references to almost every movie he has done in his 26 year career, and every fan should pick up on all the references within this film.
The plot is very simple. Dumbs**t teenagers, whom are messing around in a graveyard built for Chinese people who mined gold in the town of Gold Lick, Oregon, unleash the Chinese war deity, Guan Di.
The film then cuts to Bruce on the set of his latest movie, Cave Alien 2. A fan then kidnaps Bruce, thinking he is the only one who can stop Guan Di, and brings him to Gold Lick in order to save them from the monster. Bruce thinks this is an elaborate joke and plays along until he finally sees Guan Di.
The movie is filled with laughs, which I think only Bruce fans will enjoy. But if you are a Bruce fan, as I am, you will be laughing throughout the whole movie.
Although this was an unfinished version I saw, it was still incredibly satisfying. I can only wait for the complete version to hit theaters, where I shall watch it as many times as humanly possible.
