Bruce Campbell is Elvis in Bubba Ho-Tep Blu-ray cover art
It seems like only yesterday we were reporting that Phantasm: Ravager, the latest movie in filmmaker Don Coscarelli’s horror franchise, will screen at this year’s Fantastic Fest, where a 4K restoration of his original 1979 horror film Phantasm is also playing. And that’s because it was only yesterday.
But these are busy times for Coscarelli completists. Just a day later, Scream Factory has released the cover art for its forthcoming collector’s edition Blu-ray of Coscarelli’s Bubba Ho-Tep, which the horror imprint is releasing Nov. 8. Among the most beloved cult horror films of recent times, the 2003 movie was an adaptation of Joe Lansdale’s short story of the same name.
Bubba Ho-Tep stars Bruce Campbell and the late Ossie Davis as a pair of nursing home residents who believe themselves to be, respectively, Elvis Presley and John F. Kennedy, and who team up to battle an ancient Egyptian mummy. If you’re saying to yourself, “That can’t actually be what this film is about!” then feel free to pre-order the Blu-ray so you can discover how wrong you are, as soon as possible.
You can see the artwork for the Scream Factory Blu-ray above, and the Bubba Ho-Tep trailer below.
