Bubba Ho-Tep

Elvis Presley isn’t dead; he just fell into a coma. After years of being unconscious in an East Texas nursing home, an elderly Elvis (Bruce Campbell) awakens and discovers he and the other residents of The Shady Rest Retirement Home are in danger, being feasted upon by a re-animated, malevolent, Egyptian mummy. Elvis and his only friend, Jack (Ossie Davis)—an African American nursing home resident who claims to be President John F. Kennedy—are the quiet retirement community’s only chance of survival against Bubba Ho-Tep’s ancient appetite for geriatric destruction. Based on an alternate history novella by Joe R. Lansdale, the horror comedy Bubba Ho-Tep brought together much of the same crew that worked on Director Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm films and is certainly crafted in the same audacious spirit. (HD Presentation)
