      EVENT DETAILS
      Bubba Ho-Tep

      There have been many stories about what really happened to Elvis Presley and JFK. BUBBA HO-TEP, based on the short story by cult author Joe R. Lansdale, presents the most outrageous and entertaining one yet. "Elvis and JFK did not die, and today they're roommates in an East Texas nursing home whose residents are being killed by an ancient Egyptian Soul Sucker named Bubba Ho-Tep. I want to get that on the table at the get-go, so I can deal with the delightful wackiness of this movie, which is endearing and vulgar in about the right proportion. -- Roger Ebert After a long run with the PHANTASM franchise, writer/producer/director Don Coscarelli gave the genre film world yet another long-favored midnight movie gem in the form of 2002s BUBBA HO-TEP. Starring Bruce Campbell in his other role-of-a-lifetime as Elvis Presley, BUBBA piles on foulmouthed ancient mummies, conspiracy theories and the ultimate battle between good and evil. Its also a surprisingly layered tale about growing old, regrets and redemption (Gizmodo). Also starring the brilliant Ossie Davis (DO THE RIGHT THING) as John F. Kennedy! "Hilarious, a little scary and strangely poignant. Campbell's cranky, valiant, sad-sack King is a soulfully funny creation." - Newsweek
