Introducing Bruce Campbell...
19 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

...But not THE Bruce Campbell. Bizarre, salacious story about a former fat singer getting herself killed by a host of possible candidates. It seems that Rachel - played by Ann Noble who also wrote this dreck - has a thing for younger men including her own son. A terrible actor poses as a policeman and we hear various characters go through their whereabouts at the time of Rachel's demise as well going into detail about their relationships with her with him brooding over what they say. It seems that a fairly plump, older woman in her late 40's or early 50's with little money can have the pick of all the young studs in town. The film is cheap, the story flimsy - particularly if you are buying the above pretext which was way too hard a sell for me. The acting is overall bad but I have seen much worse. Most of these actors have maybe only one other screen credit. so we are talking about negligible talent at best. Yes, the film introduces Bruce Campbell - but this is a Bruce Campbell that didn't go on to bigger and brighter things in the movie business.
