Don Coscarelli's BUBBA HO-TEP finds Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell) alive but not so well, living in a small Texas nursing home. Although he's preoccupied with his ailments and his memories, the elderly Elvis befriends another resident, John F. Kennedy (Ossie Davis), when they both begin to suspect that their neighbours aren't dying of natural causes. Their investigation leads to the discovery of an evil mummy with a fondness for cowboy gear and an appetite for the souls of senior citizens. Armed with little more than a walker and a wheelchair, the King and JFK must take on this ancient evil. Based on a short story by Joe R. Lansdale, BUBBA HO-TEP mixes comedy, drama, and horror to create a remarkably quirky film. As the aged and ailing Elvis, Campbell gives an outstandingly funny and poignant performance, while Davis exudes intelligence and warmth as JFK. Although horror is a key element of the story, much of the movie focuses on the life of Elvis and his new friendship with the former president, leading to many oddly comical scenes and even a few genuinely touching moments. Of course, their embalmed foe and his creepy minions must be confronted, making this the first movie about Elvis and JFK to appeal to horror enthusiasts, or, conversely, the first horror movie to appeal to Elvis and JFK enthusiasts. Either way, it's a highly unconventional tale that no adventurous filmgoer should miss.

I really enjoyed this movie too, thought Bruce Campbell did a good Elvis Presley!

Bruce Campbell is a God!

Quirky, funny and oddly thoughtful film.

This film is odd but strangely keeps you watching and draws you in to its very humurous and interesting story..

I liked it..:thumbsup:

Brilliant film, snap it up at this price!

Awsome movie nice dvd extras too. !!

plus Bruce is doing a UK appearance @ collectormaniamidlands.com/

I adore this film and at this price you cant go wrong, just bought myself a copy ! Thank you !

:thumbsup:

I have to agree with everyone else - it's a great film.

If you like it I'd recommend getting hold of some of Joe R Lansdales books too - in particular the Leonard and Hap series are a great read.

I'd also recommend everyone to get Bruce's autobiography...If Chins Could Kill.

Its worth it alone for the unbelievably hilarious intro...containing a Sam/Ted Raimi escapade!!!!

from the website:

AUTOGRAPHS:
There will be a charge for each actor's autograph. This will generally be between £10 - £25 per signature depending on which guest.
You can have this autograph on one of a selection of free 8"X10" photographs supplied at Collectormania, or on your own items.
(Please note: Charges are for the autographs themselves, so apply to personal items as well as available photographs. Paying for an autograph does not guarantee you will be able to chat or be photographed with the guest. Some free 8"X10" photographs are made available to be autographed)
It is sometimes necessary to limit the number of autographs per person. This is to help as many fans as possible to meet the guests. If this limit is neccessary we will endeavour to put up signs making everyone aware of this

money grabbing scum. pay to see their movies and buy their books but that's not enough to get their autograph. i live in walking distance of the ricoh arena but they can go f**k themselves.

Cheers - looking forward to this, saw the trailer yonks ago and thought it looked great.

From the few conventions that I've been too in the past, this is normal practice.

doesn't make it right though. if you go you'll have to pay £25 for something signed. i don't know about you but it seems very wrong to me.

Just finished watching this - great film, really enjoyed it!

No extras whatsoever though, just Play option on the DVD 'menu'.
