All is well
Who would have thought it? Don Coscarelli, the man who wrote and directed Phantasm a long, long time ago comes back out of nowhere, after spending his entire career in the dregs, with something like this. A film that is more an exploration of regret, fading dignity and growing old than it is about a soul-sucking mummy.
Very old Elvis is brilliantly played by Bruce Campbell. The voice, the hair, the mannerisms are all perfect. He’s stuck in Mud Creek rest home where the cynical staff believe he’s really called Sebastian Haff, the man Elvis traded places with back in the 70s. And when Haff died, so did the Elvis the public loved. This only left the REAL Elvis free to live his life in peace and eventually indignity.
He pals up with a man who believes he’s JFK, only problem is he’s black. Though it’s more likely he’s senile rather than a truth-teller like the so-called Sebastian Haff. Both men have one concern, to stop some kind of Bubba Ho-Tep mummy from taking the souls of all the rest home residents.
Yes, it’s insane. But also wildly imaginative and more than balances out the endless, heartless, conveyor belt Hollywood productions. Elements of the story will stay with you and the character development is graceful and important.
The finishing touch is Brian Tyler’s awesome score. The main theme is one of the best ever and will flood you will feeling and emotion. Not only is Bubba Ho-Tep blessed with a cast and crew who care about the film their making, it also has wonderful music too. I am lucky enough to have the rare score CD (autographed by Coscarelli and Tyler). Hunt it down, it’s seriously worth it.
Keep a lookout for Reggie Bannister as the rest home manager. And watch all the way to the end of the credits for a weird message…
ELVIS RETURNS IN ‘BUBBA NOSFERATU: CURSE OF THE SHE VAMPIRES’
When I first heard about his film I thought the idea of Elvis in a rest home doing battle against a mummy with John F. Kennedy was pure genius, and after having seen it, my thought was only confirmed. Not often is there a film that I will hype so much in my head that when I Do actually get to see it I’m still hyped about it. But this is one of those films. It was all that I was expecting… and then some. It has everything anyone could want in a film, original story, original direction, horror, comedy, drama and more than one stand out performance. Something lacking in the motion picture industry these days is originality, so when this came along it was quite refreshing.
We have Bruce Campbell giving the performance of a lifetime, and almost no recognition. The part of Elvis could have come across as just sad and pathetic, but instead, he brought a sense of realism to it, and heart. At times we felt bad for him, but we never forgot that he was the King of Rock and Roll. And he was still very much capable of “Takin’ Care’a Business”. We do have the option of believing he is Elvis, or that he could really be Sebastian Haff who impersonated Elvis for so long that he actually believes he is “The King”? As for myself- I’m a believer.
Yet another overlooked performance is Ossie Davis. He played the part of John F. “Jack” Kennedy to perfection. His performance was all class. It came off in such a way that We don’t believe he is J.F.K. – but we believe that He believes he is J.F.K. Too confusing? Sorry.
Let’s not forget Ella Joyce as The Nurse, and the old kleptomaniacal woman who was attacked by the “Cock-a-roach”. And fans of Don Coscarelli’s “Phantasm” movies will surely recognize Reggie Bannister as the rest home administrator. Well I could name everyone in the movie, they all did a swell job. But I can’t stop without mentioning Bob Ivy as “Bubba”. He did a fine job as well, and starved himself in the process just to appear undead and severely dehydrated! And KNB Effects made a very spooky looking mummy, I might add.
I’m not sure why this movie is classified mostly as a horror when it’s so much more than that. I think there’s a much wider audience out there that could (and would) appreciate a film like this but are missing out because it’s been marketed strictly as horror. I actually know people who won’t even watch it because they think it’s all blood and gore! I guess that’s because when they see it on the shelves at the video stores it’s classified under “HORROR”. Oh well, sometimes it’s nice to feel like you’re in on a secret.
“Where’d my youth go? Why didn’t fame hold off old age and death? Why did I leave fame in the first place? Do I want it back? And could I have it back? And if I could… would it make any difference?”
