When mysterious deaths plague the Shady Rest retirement home, it’s up to an aging, cantankerous Elvis Presley (Campbell) and a decrepit – and black – JFK (Davis) to defeat a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy with a penchant for sucking the souls from the barely living! Will this Bubba Ho-Tep make sure there’s never another Elvis sighting? Or can the King show the world that he can still take care of business?
