Synopsis

A quartet of comedy horror films starring cult actor and director Bruce Campbell. In 'My Name Is Bruce' (2007), in which the actor plays himself, the mining town of Gold Lick is terrorised by Guan-di, the ancient Chinese evil spirit and protector of the dead. Infuriated by the desecration of their graves by youngsters, Guan-di has come back to protect the spirits of Chinese miners, who died in a cave-in many years before. Bruce Campbell-obsessed Jeff Graham (Taylor Sharpe), who really seems to think that Bruce can slay devils, brings him to the town and sets him loose on Guan-di. In 'Bubba Ho-Tep' (2002), two residents of a Mud Creek retirement home, an aged Elvis Presley (Campbell) and a black man who thinks he's JFK (Ossie Davis) have to join forces to stop a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy from sucking the souls out of the retirement home's other residents. In 'The Man With the Screaming Brain' (2005), wealthy businessman William Cole (Campbell) ends up with half of his brain replaced by that of Russian taxi-driver Yegor (Vladimir Kolev) when he is brought back to life by mad scientist Dr. Ivan Ivanovich Ivanov (Stacy Keach). Having both been killed by the same woman, William and Yegor's brain now plots revenge. Finally, in 'Alien Apocalypse' (2002), astronaut Dr. Ivan Hood (Campbell) returns to Earth after a 40-year cryogenic sleep to find the planet under the rule of gigantic termites. After being captured, Hood resolves to set things straight by escaping, forming a rebel army, and sending the bugs back to outer space.
