The second film in our three-part Egyptomania Film Series, Bubba Ho-Tep is a cult classic that tells the “true” story of what really became of Elvis Presley. Starring Bruce Campbell as Elvis, and Ossie Davis as John F. Kennedy Jr., the story begins at the Shady Rest Retirement Home in Texas where both are now spending their days. When mysterious deaths start occurring in the home, it’s up to these two old legends to show they have what it takes to defeat a 3,000 year old soul-sucking mummy!
