2 NEW BUBBA HO-TEP POSTERS
If you consider yourself to be a 'real movie geek', you would know every move that actor Bruce Campbell makes, along with his favorite drink, his favorite fast-food restaurant and what he thinks his severed hand from EVIL DEAD 2 is doing at this very moment. Either way, you must have heard about his latest project by now, a film that seems to have been doing the Film Festival circuit for some time now and getting nothing but great response from genre fans around the world. The film is called BUBBA HO-TEP and here's what it's all about:
'Based on the Bram Stoker Award nominee short story by acclaimed author Joe R. Lansdale, BUBBA HO-TEP tells the ?true? story of what really did become of Elvis. We find the King (Bruce Campbell) as an elderly resident in an East Texas rest home, who switched identities with an Elvis impersonator years before his ?death?, then missed his chance to switch back. Elvis teams up with Jack (Ossie Davis), a fellow nursing home resident who thinks that he is actually President John F. Kennedy, and the two valiant old codgers sally forth to battle an evil Egyptian entity who has chosen their long-term care facility as his happy hunting grounds.'
