SYNOPSIS:
EDDIE PRESLEY is a down-on-his-luck ex-Elvis impersonator. With his days of former glory performing in small to medium-sized clubs behind him, he’s stuck in a dead-end security job, making barely enough to live out of his van. But Eddie’s luck is about to change when he’s offered a comeback gig at a seedy Hollywood nightclub — until he has a breakdown on stage and gives the audience a powerful, improvised performance they’ll not soon forget.

Based on the stage play by star Duane Whitaker (FROM DUSK ‘TIL DAWN 2), EDDIE PRESLEY is a bittersweet drama in the tradition of THE KING OF COMEDY and ED WOOD, with plenty of satirical jabs at politics and life at the bottom of the entertainment food chain. Featuring an all-star lineup of genre favorites, Tempe DVD is proud to bring this cult classic from director Jeff Burr (STRAIGHT INTO DARKNESS, LEATHERFACE) to home video for the first time ever, complete with commentary from the filmmakers!

REVIEWS:
"Wildly entertaining and inventive...so close to perfect, almost overcoming its low budget obstacles to turn into something truly classic. About as well written, expertly acted, and carefully crafted as a low-budget character study can be, this is a magical movie with one eye in the artistic. Tempe's 2-disc DVD set of this special movie is a true milestone in the history of digital distribution for this no-budget movie company." - DVDTalk.com

"An eccentric mix of minimalist humor and downbeat near-tragedy...half Jim Jarmusch, half psychodrama...it’s never dull." - Variety

"A tribute to every rock band in L.A. who truly believes they’ll be the next Guns ‘n Roses and every porn actress who knows she can out-act Julia Roberts..." - Film Threat
