“Elvis and JFK did not die, and today they're roommates in an East Texas nursing home whose residents are being killed by an ancient Egyptian Soul Sucker named Bubba Ho-Tep. I want to get that on the table at the get-go, so I can deal with the delightful wackiness of this movie, which is endearing and vulgar in about the right proportion.” -- Roger Ebert
After a long run with the PHANTASM franchise, writer/producer/director Don Coscarelli gave the genre film world yet another long-favored midnight movie gem in the form of 2002’s BUBBA HO-TEP.
Starring Bruce Campbell in his other role-of-a-lifetime as Elvis Presley, BUBBA piles on “foulmouthed ancient mummies, conspiracy theories and the ultimate battle between good and evil. It’s also a surprisingly layered tale about growing old, regrets and redemption” (Gizmodo). Also starring the brilliant Ossie Davis (DO THE RIGHT THING) as John F. Kennedy!
