Bubba Ho-Tep

Elvis Lives! In a retirement home in Mud Creek Missouri. And there is an egyptian mummy stealing souls there. Bruce Campell did a compiling portrayal of The King and got to deliver some of his classic attitude as a geriatric Elvis. The character was well thought out, and certainly made me think about the lives of the elderly. And the current mythology around Elvis provided a wonderful gateway of discarded disbelief to the soul-sucking mummy.
Very good movie. I highly recommend it.
