Review If you're tired of conventional horror movies, try Bubba Ho-Tep, a cinematic oddity from director Don Coscarelli. Based on indisputable facts, the film finally reveals what really happened to Elvis and why so many people are reluctant to admit that he's dead. In fact, the man buried in the King's grave is a fake...As a satire and an off-the-wall comedy, Bubba Ho-Tep hits the bullseye. As a horror movie, it's less successful. Maybe we're too busy laughing to be scared, but the title character isn't that frightening and we instinctively recognize that he's no match for Campbell's Elvis. Nevertheless, as I enjoyed this low-budget tale of a dead Egyptian let loose on today's world, I couldn't help wonder how much better the recent big-budget Mummy movies could have been with Coscarelli at the helm. Without a doubt (and with virtually no budget), Bubba Ho-Tep blows them away. To the writer/director, I have only one thing to say: thank you very much.

Review A clever idea remains funny for a while but is done in by some supernatural mumbo-jumbo in "Bubba Ho-Tep," a mismatched marriage of offbeat character study and unimaginative horror riffs. Most compelling element by far is Bruce Campbell's inspired performance as a nursing home patient who insists he is the real Elvis Presley...While some good acting remains, introduction of the mummy plot basically derails the film at about the 45-minute point, and the silly climax, in which Elvis and JFK battle the ragged ancient apparition and have to burn it not once but twice, is so rote and generic that it could have come out of any ordinary horror film...Pic finally reps a blown opportunity, but Campbell's Elvis stands as one of the very best screen interpretations of the King seen thus far, even if he's arguably not even playing the real thing...End credits promise -- or threaten, according to one's disposition -- a follow-up: "Bubba Nosferatu."

Quotes
Aaron Hillis, Premiere A wildly creative amusement, thanks mostly to Campbell...
David Ansen, NewsWeek A one-of- a-kind horror movie: hilarious, a little scary and strangely poignant.
Megan Lehmann, New York Post It's a credit to the actors, particularly the superb Campbell...
Pete Vonder, Film Threat ...simultaneously hilarious and poignant, with great performances.
Scott Foundas, LA Weekly Campbell is flat-out great, muting his beloved Sam Raimi shtick in favor of a genuine character turn...
