If Chins Could Kill

Bruce Campbell rocks. And not just because he saved the world from demons in Evil Dead and had a recurring role on Xena: Warrior Princess. This guy can write!

Bruce Campbell's book If Chins Could Kill tells the story of the actor's rise to B movie fame. Fans of the Evil Dead series will probably buy this book for all the inside details on how the movies were made, but it's worth reading even if you have no idea who Campbell is. The book is fascinating and funny, whether he's writing about his childhood in suburban Detroit, the difficulties of raising funds for a low-budget feature, or his experiences interacting with fans.

What's this all about?
Popcrazy introduces you to books you can comfortably discuss during a commercial break from Smallville or when a lame song comes on the radio.

Our selections all have pop culture relevance (you know Oprah never cared about that!). Once in a while, we'll even throw in some discussion questions.
