'''''Bubba Ho-Tep''''' is a small-release film, written and directed by Don Coscarelli (based on a short story by Joe R. Lansdale), starring Creator/BruceCampbell and Ossie Davis. The premise: Three old men far removed from their proper places fight it out for their souls. Did we mention the three are Elvis, an old black man who claims he's UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy, and a {{mummy}} dressed like a cowboy?

In the 1970s, ElvisPresley (Campbell) sought out the world's greatest Elvis impersonator, Sebastian Haff. They secretly switched places, so Elvis could retire in peace. Unfortunately, all the documentation was lost in a trailer explosion, Haff died from a drug overdose, and Elvis fell from the stage while impersonating himself and went into a coma for twenty years. Now alone, assumed crazy, and convalescent in a west Texas retirement home with a mysterious growth on his genitals, he languishes.

The mysterious cursed mummy was stolen from a museum by treasure-hunting rednecks, dressed in a cowboy outfit, and lost in a storm in the river by the retirement home. He rises from the depths to consume the souls of the living, feeding at the retirement home to avoid detection, releasing the residual parts of their souls into the men's room, and scratching obscene hieroglyphs on the stall. The defeated and sick elders aren't very nourishing, but no one misses them. No one believes them. No one cares.

cares. In addition, the film achieves a strong sense of realism by having the mummy prey on elderly people who require walkers, canes, and wheel-chairs to get around, if they are not actually bed-ridden. Being slow and plodding, the mummy would not be a real threat to typical horror movie protagonists who are usually teens or young adults who could easily run circles around it.
