“When her great aunt dies, famous horror hostess Elvira heads for the uptight New England town Falwell to claim her inheritance of a haunted house, a witch’s cookbook and a punk rock poodle. But once the stuffy locals get an eyeful of the scream queen’s ample assets, all hell busts out and breaks loose. Can the Madonna of the Macabre find love with a studly cinema owner, avoid her creepy great uncle, titillate the town’s teens and become a Las Vegas dance sensation all without being burned alive at the stake?”
Elvira is every young horror fan’s secret crush, no doubt about that!
This film is a whole bunch of fun, with Elvira in full-form here and quite hilarious in certain scenes. Cassandra Peterson had (by the time this came out) made a name for herself as the Queen of Scream, a horror-lover, the “hostess with the most”…and we’re not referring to her wonderful cleavage (seen in almost every scene here), but the lady knows her horror, and also knows how to make people laugh!
This is good clean fun, a few scares here and there, but purely safe for anyone over the age of say maybe 8-12 years of age (I believe it is now listed as a PG-13).
If you need a good laugh, and want to see Elvira, check this out!
7 out of 10 – A whole lot of fun, with cleavage 😉
