It'd be weird enough if Don Coscarelli simply made a film about an elderly Elvis (Bruce Campbell) and JFK (Ossie Davis, who is decidedly black and not Irish) battling a resurrected Egyptian mummy from their nursing home. But the dude behind Phantasm and The Beastmaster ups the bizarro factor on 2002's Bubba Ho-Tep by turning the oddball story into a genuinely affecting meditation on aging. Campbell, embracing his destiny of playing the King, makes Elvis a fat, horny and devastated shell of a man who groans his way into action. It's the saddest, most moving film about a geriatric rock star and president squaring off against the undead ever made.
