‘Bubba Ho-Tep’ Prequel ‘Bubba and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers’ New Book!

All you fans of Don Coscarelli’s 2002 comedy horror film Bubba Ho-Tep are in for a treat come this October, because a prequel written by Joe R. Lansdale will be getting a release via book form, which is titled Bubba and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers. If you’re still waiting for Coscarelli’s official sequel Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires, we think this is the next best thing to a follow up film.

Dark Universe are huge fans of the film, so obviously we can’t wait to check out this thing out. To find out more about the new novel, you can read the full description below.

About the Book:

Part of a secret government organization designed to protect civilians, Elvis Presley and a handful of hardcore warriors set out to save the world from an invasion of hive-minded, shape-shifting vampire-like creatures from a dark dimension who have taken up residence in a New Orleans junkyard.

Besides Elvis, among these righteous warriors is a hammer-wielding descendant of John Henry of railroad fame; a Blind Man who sees more than those with sight; Jack, a strategic wizard; and Elvis’s right hand man and journal writer, Johnny, all thrown in with Raven (real name Jenny) a female recruit who is also a budding pop star – and like Elvis, high on the charisma chart.

Their leader is none other than Colonel Parker, Elvis’s cutthroat manager, and a warrior himself, directly in contact with President Nixon… or possibly one of his doubles.

It’s an unnerving peek into a secret world, and a possible delusion. It’s what happened before Elvis, aka Sebastian Haff, found himself in an East Texas rest home, mounted on a walker, fighting an Egyptian mummy and worrying about a growth on his pecker.

Strange monsters, wild fights, sex with a beautiful ghost, a drug-induced trip into another dimension, and all manner of mayhem ensue, along with a Mississippi riverboat ride on a giant paddle wheel, and of course, there will be 3D glasses, fried peanut butter and ’nanna sandwiches, and a few hard working zombies.

Bubba and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers will be available in October and you can pre-order the book right here!
