Actually, it's a serious movie. It's about growing old and how you don't have to die before you die- if you get my drift.
I've got a couple of reservations; there's a miasma of Cuckoo's Nesty misogyny hanging about the rest home corridors; and it's all kinda slow. But maybe the last is a virtue in this age of low-attention-span actioners.
Otherwise it's funny and smart and scary. What more do you want? It's like Buffy with a couple of old codgers in place of the Scoobies.
Bruce Campbell (unrecognisable in sideburns and prosthetic chin) is great as grouchy Elvis and Ossie Davis is a charmer. What timing he has ! I guess it must have been one of his very last roles (if not the last.) RIP Ossie!
They miss one trick. They don't get Campbell to sing.
