Weird! I recommend it to Elvis-loving retirement home occupants high on marijuana brownies.

This was a guilty pleasure for me. I don't know when I have laughed so hard. If they would have toned down the profanity I would have loved this for my library. It just goes to show you if you don't have millions of dollars for a great movie if you have the right actors and writers. LONG LIVE ELVIS!

When is the BPL getting a copy or two?

This is perhaps the best written B horror film I have ever seen. There is no way to explain how this can be a good movie. Outside of saying that Bruce Campbell nails this part and all the acting is worth seeing. The concept of this movie is ridiculous and the special effects are low budget, but it truly shines. If you like oddball B movies and Bruce Campbell you will love this movie.

Joe R Lansdale wrote it (great writer) and Bruce Campbell gives a spot-on performance as an elderly Elvis, This is one of my all time favourite movies (I own 2 copies - one for me and one to lend to friends).
