BUBBA AND THE COSMIC BLOOD-SUCKERS
Years before facing the cowboy hat-wearing mummy Bubba Ho-Tep in an East Texas retirement home, Elvis finds himself battling interdimensional body-desiccating beings at the behest of his manager, Colonel Parker. Joining him on this journey is clairvoyant Blind Man, master-planner Jack, hammer-swinging John Henry, bodyguard Johnny Smack, and trainee Jenny Jo Dallas. Down in New Orleans awaits the Big Mama, who would like nothing more than to drain the "Jacked-Up Mojo" from the group.
In this 1994 story that inspired the cult-classic Don Coscarelli film, Elvis is spending his golden years at the Mud Creek Shady Grove Convalescence Home alongside a man claiming to be President John F. Kennedy. Strange sights and sounds leads the two to discover an ancient Egyptian mummy stalking the corridors of their retirement home. They soon face off against the monster...but will anyone believe their story or shrug it off as more tall tales?
