Film & television actor Bruce Campbell grew up in Royal Oak, Michigan.
Since then he has become a cult movie actor and has cheekily embraced it.
In the late 1960’s, he met filmmaker Sam Raimi at West Maple Junior High School (Inkster rd & Maple rd, Bloomfield Hills, MI), then they both attended Groves High School (Beverly Hills, MI) where they shot home movies together.
Bruce left for Western Michigan University and Sam went to Michigan State University. They reunited in 1978 to film Within The Woods. This film was a prequel to one they shot a few years later called The Evil Dead (1981).
The Evil Dead has its world premiere at the beautiful Redford Theatre (Lahser and Grand River Ave, Detroit) on October 15, 1981. After that, they made the phenomenal horror movie Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn (1987) and the rest is history.
