    Come Back to the 7-Eleven, Elvis Presley, Elvis Presley

    Welcome to Lantanahootchie, Mississippi — a gothic Southern town where Tennessee Williams meets The Twilight Zone. Come Back to the 7-Eleven, Elvis Presley, Elvis Presley is a modern ghost story that satirizes the clichs and stereotypes of southern drama by serving up a healthy portion of humor, intrigue, spicy southern repartee and a touch of trailer park trash. Far below the Mason-Dixon line lies the mythical Lantanahootchie, a dying town full of dark secrets and broken dreams, whose only claim to fame is as the home of the only living son of Elvis Presley — at least according to Thelma Jean Watkins, proprietor of the local 7-Eleven and supposed mother to the Kings progeny. The towns only source of income are tourist attractions that exploit the Kings legacy, much to the chagrin of Elvis Jr., an introverted, dark-haired teenaged boy whose high cheekbones and bedroom eyes resemble the King's. When a dark stranger (possibly a ghost) rides into town driving a 1958 Corvette, he threatens to destroy Lantanahootchies fragile illusion of bucolic tranquility by exposing the tragic events of the past and the inevitability of the future.
