It Came From Netflix:Bubba Ho-Tep(2003)
File this under the 'better later than never' tab. Bubba Ho-Tep has grown into such a strong cult following that doing a straight review of this is rather useless. What I would like to say is Bruce Campbell does an awesome impersonation of Elvis, perhaps the best. This movie is hilarity wrapped in a scare flick. Ossie Davis has JFK was the perfect complement to Campbell it could have been horror comedy's answer to Clint Eastwood/Morgan Freeman had Davis not passed away in 2005. How the ancient Egyptian entity extracts his souls is rather...ummm...cleansing.
In comparison to other horror comedies, Bubba Ho-Tep is funny, scary, sad, and memorable! "Don't f*** with the king!"
