    Synopsis:
    Something very strange is going on at the Shady Rest Retirement Home in Mud Creek, Texas. It is the present day, and the King of Rock 'n' Roll (Bruce Campbell) is quietly living out his twilight years in the company of fellow resident, former US president John F. Kennedy (Ossie Davis). Contrary to popular belief, JFK managed to dodge the assassin's bullet but in the aftermath had his skin dyed black and his head messed with by "Them" at the White House. But that's not half of it. According to the former president, there's a malevolent Egyptian mummy on the loose in the halls of the home intent on devouring the residents' souls. Reluctant to take this evil threat lying down, Elvis and JFK decide it's time to kick some mummy ass! Armed with just a Zimmer frame, a wheelchair, a makeshift flamethrower and some dubious karate moves, the decrepit duo set about taking care of business…
