Wondering why times are missing?

Bubba Ho-Tep

From the tweaked-out imaginations of director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm) and writer Joe R. Lansdale (Hap and Leonard) comes this inspired horror comedy about an aged Elvis Presley (the great Bruce Campbell) laid up in an east Texas rest home. When a soul-sucking Egyptian mummy shows up to harvest some easy pickings, the King teams up with an elderly black man (Ossie Davis) who claims to be J.F.K. Together, the two (possibly crazy) oldsters battle the forces of evil. The budget is low and the action is slow, but the cast is great and the dialogue is endlessly quotable. Pure cult film fun.
