Bruce Campbell stars in this strange, hysterical, comico-horrific (yes, I made that up, but you get the point) movie. Bubba Ho-Tep is the kind of movie you either love or passionately hate. There is no in between. You love it or hate it. If you take everything to the first degree then Bubba Ho-Tep is not for you. If you are a fan of Bruce Campbell and haven’t seen this movie then shame on you. Only Bruce Campbell can play in this kind of low budget B movie and pull this performance! This is one hell of a trip.
Bubba Ho-Tep: Is This Movie For You?
If you have problems with any of the following, maybe you should stick to less bizarre and unusual movies:
Elvis is alive
JFK is alive and…..black
A mummy wants to suck their souls
If this is all kosher then buy the Bubba Ho-Tep DVD. You will have a hell of a night! Here’s the short version:
Old Elvis and John F Kennedy are residents of a creepy rest home somewhere in Texas. One day, strange things started to happen. Residents are disappearing, there are strange noises in the night. JFK and Elvis team up to investigate. They soon find out that an ancient soul-sucking mummy is preying on the elderly!
Some of the classic quotes from the movie:
Elvis: “Ask not what your rest home can do for you, but what you can do for your rest home.”
Elvis: “But Jack uhh, no offense but…. President Kennedy was a white man.” JFK: “That’s how clever they are. They dyed me this color, all over. can you think of a better way to hide the truth than that?”
Elvis: “Even a big bitch cockroach like you should know… never, but never, fuck with the King”
