31 Days of Horror 3: Bubba Ho-Tep

DAY 28
Wonder if the Elvis Presley that died was just and impersonator and the real one was still alive, what do you think he would be doing? Well according to this film he would be hunting down an evil Egyptian entity.
Bubba Ho-Tep is a film that is a mixture of black comedy and horror. The movie stars Bruce Campbell as the King himself, Elvis Presley. Presley is in an elderly resident home in East Texas because he switched identities with an impersonator years before his so called death. Because the other Elvis dies the real Elvis was never able to reclaim his identity and now he's stuck in a home with John F. Kennedy played by Ossie Davis. Soon the home is under attack by an evil Egyptian entity that sucks the life out of people and it's up to Elvis and Kennedy to stop him.
I know it sounds weird and it is, but it's also original. Something that is disappearing more and more nowadays.
Campbell gives an outstanding performance, he is really able to disappear in his character. Because of that the movie has some surprisingly moving scenes, which make the film all the more interesting.
This movie is a cult classic in every sense of the word and is something everyone should see.
