Hilarious, a little scary and strangely poignant. Campbell's cranky, valiant, sad-sack King is a soulfully funny creation.
February 28, 2017
This is a bizarre film that absolutely lives up to its insane premise ... Bruce Campbell turns in one of his most muted performances while playing Elvis Presley - it's a testament to his range.
November 7, 2016
Despite having a fascinating set-up and an excellent turn from Bruce Campbell, Bubba Ho-Tep becomes a missed opportunity due to director/writer Don Coscarelli's inability to take advantage of the bizarre premise.

A lot less a horror film, and much more of a film about the horrors of getting old.
December 27, 2007
September 24, 2007
A mismatched marriage of offbeat character study and unimaginative horror riffs.
September 24, 2007
Writer-director Don Coscarelli piles on unpleasant details and cynical asides as if they were the stuff of wisdom, though they seem intended to produce guffaws rather than thoughts
August 14, 2007
This absurdly clever caper is elevated by Bruce Campbell's pensive Elvis into a moving meditation on the diminutions of age and the vagaries of fame.
August 11, 2007
Don Coscarelli still doesn't know how to make cookie-cutter genre films. Let's hope he never learns how.
June 21, 2007
Elvis is in a geriatric care centre with JFK (who's black) and he's got to kick some ancient Mummy ass. What else is there to say?
April 1, 2006
Not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, but there's enough here to entertain even those for whom 'cult' is a four-letter word.
February 9, 2006
There's plenty of scatological humour and knockabout fun to get one through the slower passages.

It's outrageous and full of novel ideas that will tickle the fancy of anyone who is stimulated by the absurd.
December 27, 2004
There may be some deeper meaning to all this madness about living beyond your prime and regret, but it just barely escapes me how it all fits in
October 30, 2004
the true horror here, far from being some middle-eastern revenant in a cowboy hat, is the indignity of disease, the anonymity of old age, and the inevitability of death
October 19, 2004
A sharply written, surprisingly moving little film with a terrific performance by Bruce Campbell.
October 6, 2004
A fiendishly funny comedy horror.
September 30, 2004
Bubba Ho-Tep tries ineffectually to be both a lyrical character study and a darkly satirical horror flick.
