Joe R. Lansdale Releases BUBBA HO-TEP Prequel Book BUBBA AND THE COSMIC BLOOD-SUCKERS!

Whaaaaaa? I love BUBBA HO-TEP. It’s not only one of my fave of Don Coscarelli’s flicks, but I also think it’s the finest performance Bruce Campbell has ever given. Sure, the idea of him playing an elderly Elvis Presley that teams up with a black JFK to battle an ancient Mummy in an East Texas […]

I’m not the first to compare PHANTASM […]
