BUBBA HO-TEP (2002) After falling into a lengthy coma following a freak accident involving hip gyration, a now aged Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell) wakes up in an East Texas nursing home, where he befriends Jack (Ossie Davis), an African-American senior who claims to be President John F. Kennedy. After residents of their quiet retirement community start dying of dubiously unnatural causes, Elvis and Jack discover that the perpetrator is Bubba Ho-Tep (Bob Ivy), an Egyptian mummy with murderous intentions.
Don Coscarelli became the youngest director to ever have a film distributed by a major studio, at the age of 19. He went on to direct the PHANTASM horror series, which garnered a massive cult following, and continued his career with BEASTMASTER, BUBBA HO-TEP and JOHN DIES AT THE END.
