BUBBA HO-TEP
2002, 92 min, USA, Dir: Don Coscarelli

THE KING OF ROCK VS. THE KING OF THE DEAD! Based on the Bram Stoker Award nominated short story by cult author Joe R. Lansdale, the stylish and funny BUBBA HO-TEP tells the "true" story of what really became of Elvis Presley. We find Elvis (Bruce Campbell) as an elderly resident in an East Texas rest home plauged by an evil Egyptian mummy. It seems he switched identities with an Elvis impersonator years before his "death," and now he's lost his desire. But now he has the chance to save the other residents from losing their souls (not to mention their lives), so he 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 the mummy and save the nursing home. At once a fun sci-fi/horror romp and an exploration of aging, dignity and the meaning of life.


MANIAC COP
1988, 85 min, USA, Dir: William Lustig

When a series of innocent people are brutally murdered by someone posing as a police officer, rookie cop Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) finds himself the chief suspect. Lieutenant Frank McCrae (Tom Atkins) isn’t so sure, and before long he stumbles onto what he thinks is a nefarious cover-up involving the maniac cop of the title - a superhuman monster taking on the entire police force and anyone who stands in his way. Scripted by genre movie master Larry Cohen, MANIAC COP is one of the great down-and-dirty action movies of the late ’80s. Look out for cameos from Sam Raimi and Jake “Raging Bull” LaMotta!


ARMY OF DARKNESS
1992, Universal Pictures, 96 min, USA, Dir: Sam Raimi

The third EVIL DEAD movie sends Ash (Bruce Campbell) back in time to 1300 to battle skeletons with his chainsaw and shotgun. The result is a hilarious, action-packed hybrid of JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, the Three Stooges and Mark Twain.
