Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)

IMDb plot summary: Elvis and JFK, both alive and in nursing homes, fight for the souls of their fellow residents as they battle an ancient Egyptian Mummy.
Directed by Don Coscarelli. Starring Bruce Campbell, Ossie Davis, Ella Joyce, and Heidi Marnhout.

Oh, this was ridiculous and so much fun. A film about two elderly people fighting an undead mummy would be fun anyway, but when one of those people is Elvis and the other is a black man who's convinced he's JFK, it just gets more fun. It's silly and preposterous and great fun. I thought this one would be pretty high on my list, and I'm happy that it was.

4 stars.

Flickchart: #504 out of 2171, below Big and above Zodiac.
