Bruce Campbell gave the performance of his life as an elderly
Elvis (complete with big belly, graying hair/ sideburns and walker) and also
did a spectacular job as a younger Elvis in flashback sequences. He had the
look, walk, moves, and voice down pat! I have never seen anyone play Elvis so
well! Ozzie Davis was also very impressive as JFK, delivering some hilarious
lines in a totally serious fashion and conducting himself with the manner one
would expect of an ex-president. The dialog throughout the movie was priceless,
the writers really did a great job at being hilarious without delving into the
stupid-type silliness that plagues a great deal of modern comedies. While some
of the special effects could have definitely done with a higher budget (the
mummy for example) everything looked pretty damned good. Don Coscarelli's direction
was great, with camera angles and styles very reminiscent of the "Phantasm"
movies. Amazingly I have NOTHING bad to say about the movie at all, it's that
good! I fear saying anything else would ruin a lot of laughs and surprises so
I'm going to close by saying that this is hands down the best movie I have seen
this year. If you are a fan of horror movies, comedies, Bruce Campbell, or Elvis
you simply can NOT miss this movie. If you have any film festivals in your area
pay attention to the schedules as you can't miss the opportunity to see this
on the big screen. One word of advice, buy your tickets as soon as they go on
sale, they went really fast here in Seattle.
