Nightmare Night Applejack

Movie #9: Bubba Ho-Tep

Bubba Ho-Tep


My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Don't bother seeing this. It's about 90 minutes long and doesn't get even remotely interesting until about 70 minutes in. When you hear "geriatric Elvis and a black guy who thinks he's JFK fight a soul-sucking mummy," you think, "How could this not be 100% awesome?" Well, somehow, it managed to be entirely boring.

It has your standard B-movie cheesy special effects, and Bruce Campbell really does a good Elvis, but this is really not worth watching. I wish I could say otherwise. I just kept waiting for it to get started, and by the time it did, I really didn't care.

If I hadn't been semi-surfing while watching it, I probably would have just given up about half-way through.
