365 Movies Day #50 "Bubba Ho-Tep"
So Elvis isn't dead. Neither is JFK. It seems the ex-president underwent a complex surgical procedure to render him black. They live peacefully together in the same nursing home. That is, until an Egyptian mummy wrecks the place. No this isn't an Alex Jones show, it's a really cool horror comedy starring indy icon Bruce Campbell as Elvis.
This film is a classic in the making. It's hilarious in so many ways. I have always been a huge fan of Campbell's ever since Evil Dead 2. He delivers his best performance to date in Ho-Tep. Definitely not to be missed. I'd be remiss not to mention what a wonderful job Ossie Davis did as our beloved former president. JFK would be proud.
