A VERY SPECIAL AUTHOR & FILM EVENT!!
SF in SF, The Balboa Theatre, and Tachyon Publications present
AUTHOR JOE R. LANSDALE
with a FREE screening of
(R) 1 hr., 32 mins.
Starring Bruce Campbell and Ossie Davis
Based on the acclaimed short story by legendary author Joe R. Lansdale,
Bubba Ho-tep tells the “true” story of what really became of Elvis.
We find the King (Bruce Campbell) as an elderly resident in an East Texas rest home, who switched identities with an Elvis impersonator years before his “death”, then missed his chance to switch back. Elvis teams up with Jack (Ossie Davis), a fellow nursing home resident who thinks that he is actually President John F. Kennedy, and the two valiant old codgers sally forth to battle an evil Egyptian entity who has chosen their long-term care facility as his happy hunting grounds.
“Mind-blowing in its originality, Bubba Ho-tep transcends the “late-night cult” genre by virtue of captivating performances by Campbell and Davis…you actually believe that Elvis and JFK are alive and not quite well. Bubba Ho-tep, with its cinematic flash and terrifically offbeat humor, is a fantastic story of redemption, courage and friendship.” — CineVegas International Film Festival
