Bubba and Bruce
Watched the movie "Bubba Ho-Tep" last night. I'll just say that Bruce Campbell is the king of modern B movies. Which, in a way, is a shame. He seems like he has some decent acting chops. I'd like to see him get a chance at something legit. The movie was pretty dumb. The premise: Elvis and a black man claiming to be JFK (Ossie Davis of all people) battle a mummy who is sucking the souls out of the residents of an East Texas nursing home. It's all based on a short story by Joe R. Lansdale who I know to be a pretty freaky author. I liked his book "The Bottoms" but then I read another one by him called "Freezer Burn" and it was very, very strange. So, if you're into weird and like Bruce Campbell, check it out. If not, skip it.
