Hilarious, a little scary and strangely poignant. Campbell's cranky, valiant, sad-sack King is a soulfully funny creation.

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.

A lot less a horror film, and much more of a film about the horrors of getting old.

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.

Don Coscarelli still doesn't know how to make cookie-cutter genre films. Let's hope he never learns how.

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?

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.

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.

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

A fiendishly funny comedy horror.

About halfway through this offbeat horror comedy you realise you're watching a cult classic.

Who would have thought that such a far-out B-movie premise could result in this sharply directed, wonderfully acted, and laugh-out-loud-funny tale of courage and redemption?

Simply too cool.

Actually pretty quiet and could be considered seriously pensive if it wasn't for its inherent goofiness.
