Bubba Ho-tep (2002)

A very silly and cheesy movie. At a nursing home in East Texas we meet a man who claims to be the real Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell). We learn that he traded places with an impersonator and that is the man who died. He fell off a stage while performing as an impersonator of himself one night and broke his hip. In the home he befriends a man who believes that he is John F. Kennedy (Ossie Davis). Together they soon realize that something is not quite right at the home. One night JFK is attacked by a soul sucking Egyptian mummy. Soon JFK and Elvis are researching how to get rid of the ancient soul sucker before it is to late.

This movie is not for everyone but I enjoyed it. It was not the best movie I have seen but it was mildly entertaining. It was nice to see Ossie Davis in a comedic role. I love how he walked around saying the government painted him black to cover up the fact that he is still alive. Bruce Campbell was at his usual cheesy best as Elvis. There is a sequel scheduled for release in 2008 called Bubba Nosferatu and the Curse of the She-Vampires. Sounds like another interesting one. However, if you like B horror movies you will enjoy this movie.
