Bubba Ho-Tep (2005)

Bruce Campbell as the best movie Elvis and Ossie Davis as JFK fighting a fucking mummy in a care-home. I can’t believe this movie exists. Also Coscarelli’s art-film pacing is inspired. He never goes for the easy, self-aware gags that this material could easily be mined for. He works harder than that and forces the audience to work harder by finding the weird in less-obvious places. Pretty spectacular. Even Reggie Bannister shows up. A four-star masterpiece.

Watched on blu-ray
