Bruce Campbell Shuts Down A Heckler
Bruce Campbell is known for his role as Ash in Sam Raimi’s popular horror film franchise ‘Evil Dead Rise.’ He recently took part in the Q&A session of the film’s world premiere at the South by Southwest festival.
According to Variety, Campbell slammed a heckler who had enough of the hour-and-a-half-long horror flick and the 10 minutes session. A man fell asleep with his legs crossed and yelled something.
He then screamed, “This movie fucking sucks!” and threw an empty bucket of popcorn at that venue. In response, Campbell, who is one of the executive producers of the film, said: “What are you doing here? Get the fuck out of here!” It was followed by the crowd erupting into a cheer.
