From Back Cover:

Bruce Campbell (the Evil Dead trilogy) "gives his greatest and most entertaining performance to date" (Premiere) as an aging and cantankerous "Elvis" in this "zinger-filled crowd pleaser" (The Hollywood Reporter) from writer-director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm)! When mysterious deaths plague a Texas retirement home, it's up to its most sequined senior citizen to take on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy with a penchant for cowboy boots, bathroom graffiti and sucking the souls from the barely living!

My Comments:

So let's say that Elvis didn't die. Let's say he's now some old guy living in a retirement home in Texas. Only, nobody believes he's really Elvis. Well, nobody except this crazy old black man who believes himself to be John F. Kennedy.

Now let's say that some mummy in cowboy duds has begun sucking the souls from the other old people at the rest home, killing them off one by one. And Elvis and J.F.K. discover this and decide to take on the mummy to defend their home and their friends.

That's basically the plot and it's freakin' hilarious.
