Bruce Campbell, the star of the "Evil Dead" trilogy and voice of Ash in "Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick," will be appearing at the THQ booth (Petree Hall #4001) on Friday, May 24 from 11 AM - 12:30 PM for autograph signings and photos. "Collaborating with THQ on the development of ’Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick’ has been a great experience," said Bruce Campbell. "The ’Evil Dead’ universe translates perfectly to a compelling interactive experience so fans can look forward to destroying hordes of Deadites on their PlayStation 2 and Xbox." "’Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick’ will continue the storyline of the classic ’Evil Dead’ trilogy while offering non-stop action complete with Ash’s signature humor," said Michael Rubinelli, vice president of product development, THQ. "With more than fifty characters onscreen at one time, ’Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick’ truly captures the feel and experience of the ’Evil Dead’ movies." Developed with the full support of creators Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert, and Bruce Campbell, "Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick" allows players to assume the role of Ash, the chainsaw-armed hero from the "Evil Dead" trilogy.
