This is truly a career defining role for Bruce Campbell as he dons the porthole shades and curled lip of the King. Elvis, having tired of the decadence and hype, switches Identities with Sebastian Haff, an Elvis impersonator, "the best of the bunch" he tells us in a series of late 70's flashbacks that show him rediscovering his roots as a rock-a-billy soul man. Unfortunately fate conspires against him and after a stage fall that puts him in a coma we find Elvis convelescing in an east Texas nursing home trying to reconcile his past and confront his demons. These demons manifest themselves in the form of Bubba-Ho-Tep a lesser known 4,0000 year old Mummy with a thirst for souls and a conveniant source for acquring them at the Shady Rest Nursing home. Ossie Davis has us convinced that he is "Jack" Kennedy, hidden away in the guise of an elderly black man who is Elvis' best friend and only confidant. Together, they find a sort of redemption in facing the Mummy who is feeding on their fellow seniors and wreaking havoc in the rundown facility. Reggie Bannister(Phantasm) has a great turn as the corrupt medical director, a nice touch for Coscarelli who also directed Phantasm. This Film is sure to delight horror and Elvis fans alike and truly makes one appreciate the fine nuance of Bruce Campbells too often overlooked abilities.
