4.0 out of 5 stars There really is nothing else quite like this, 23 Mar. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bubba Ho-Tep [2002] [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this after reading some reviews and a brief interview with the star Bruce Campbell. This really is one of the strangest black comedies I have ever come across.

If you expect something serious, or a horror film, or an out and out comedy, this will not be for you. Let's face it, any film with an OAP Elvis (real or otherwise never quite answered) and a black guy who claims he is JF Kennedy as the CIA put his brain into the black guys head, hunting an undead mummy that dresses like a cowboy is going to be way off the beaten track. But that is what makes it so special.

I have no idea how or why someone came up with this idea, and to be honest the first 20 minutes are odd and almost play like a z rate horror movie, but when it gets into it's swing and the snappy dialogue starts it is just a complete laugh until the final frame.

The Elvis impression from Campbell is sensational, and some of his one liners are fantastic. And I have to say the scene in which he comes around the corner in slow motion using a zimmer frame almost gave me a laugh induced hernia.

People always ask "what on earth is that" when they see it on the shelf - that's all it takes for it to be put on and for them to be initiated to the Bubba club.
