Elvis didn’t leave the building in 1977 – he switched places with an impersonator. Unfortunately, the impersonator died leaving the real King (cult movie hero Bruce Campbell) destitute and ill-prepared for everyday life. Currently the resident of a low-rent retirement home, E spends most of his days dwelling on the past, until a series of odd deaths raises his suspicions. Now, the former King of Rock & Roll and a fellow resident who claims to be JFK (Ossie Davis) team up to stop an ancient evil from killing their neighbors. Directed by Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli, Bubba Ho-Tep is funny and touching horror movie that you won’t soon forget.
