Aroview: Strangely brilliant horror-satire with an outlandish plot where Elvis Presley (living but aging and impotent) fights the evil of a reincarnated Egyptian mummy.
In a Texas elderly rest-home it is discovered that the forces of the undead are using the residents as a convenient form of sustenance, and it is up to 'The King' (Campbell) and a black man who insists he is JFK (Davis) to put a stop to this gruesome harvest. And throughout, Presley and JFK argue their claim to being the famed ones with other residents, who think they are a few shades of senile (Campbell giving a particularly good impersonation).
Remarkably, amid the ensuing carnage and finely observed B-movie conventions, important themes about life, death and aging imaginatively explored. All up, an amazing one-off and destined for legendary status.

3 stars (Good Enough) B-grade champion Bruce Campbell is perfect as the aging Elvis, teaming up with a black JFK in preparing their resting-home fortress from an undead Egyptian monster. Thank you. Thank you very much. ~Tom H
