Bubba Ho-Tep (9-Jun-2002)

Director: Don Coscarelli

Writer: Don Coscarelli

From short story: Bubba Ho-Tep by Joe R. Lansdale

Music Composed by: Brian Tyler

Producers: Jason R. Savage; Don Coscarelli

Keywords: Dark Comedy, Texas, Mummy

Withdrawn from society and in beleaguered health, both Elvis and JFK live at an East Texas nursing home. Elvis had switched places with an impersonator years earlier, and this particular JFK is black (fully explained). When an Egyptian mummy starts claiming the lives of the home's residents by extracting their souls via the business end of the alimentary canal, our unlikely 1960s icons find themselves compelled into action. Low-budget, well-crafted independent comedy wallowing in B-movie goodness; exceptional performances from Bruce Campbell and Ossie Davis.
