Bubba Ho-Tep

I saw Bubba Ho-Tep on Friday night. It’s a brilliant movie. Bruce Campbell plays an old Elvis Presley. No, he’s not dead. Elvis traded places with an impersonator back in the 70’s and it’s the impersonator that’s dead. Of course, nobody believes poor old Elvis – they just humour him. Ossie Davis plays the only guy that believes him. Mind you, he also thinks he’s John F. Kennedy. Anyway, the movie’s set in a rest home in Texas that’s haunted by a mummy, and Elvis and JFK take it upon themselves to destroy the mummy. The movie won awards at the US Comedy Arts festival, and was an official selection at both the Toronto and Hong Kong international film festivals. Definitely worth seeing.
