Bubba Ho-Tep

4

Newsflash: Elvis Presley didn't cark it on the crapper in Graceland. Instead, he switched places with an impersonator and now lives in anonymous retirement in a Texas care home. Starting with this bonkers conceit, Don Coscarelli's madcap monster mash delivers more insane laughs than a stand-up routine in a mental institution.

With a dodgy hip and possible cancer of the penis, Elvis (Bruce Campbell) gets all shook up when he discovers that a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy is sucking the souls of his fellow care home residents. Before you can say, "What the fuck?", Elvis teams up with Ossie Davis's black JFK to do battle. Extraordinary, hilarious and strangely touching.
