Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (1988)

Horror hostess Elvira sets off on her own spooky adventure in ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK! After being fired from her late night television gig, Elvira learns that she has inherited her great aunt's creepy old mansion as well as her mysterious cookbook. The buxom beauty is left to defend herself against the puritanical citizens of Fallwell, Massachusettes, and the her conniving uncle, who will stop at nothing to retrieve his sister's ancient book of spells! ELVIRA is busting at the seems with the same bad puns and tasteless humor that made Movie Macabre such a smash sensation in the 80s! Cassandra Peterson single-handedly sells the act as the always ditsy (but never dull) Elvira, whose quick wit is only exceeded by her stunning good looks. The Queen of Camp faces off against Edie McClurg as the prissy Chastity Pariah and William Morgan Sheppard as the delightfully devious Vincent Talbot. When it comes to double entendres and Double D's, one can do no better than ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK!

Rating: 7/10.

  1. Ha ha, I've always loved this one. Fun silly times. I'm actually looking forward to buying this one and adding it to my collection, I love that scene where she's spoofing Flashdance! Ha ha! And the way she ends the film...it's freaking hilarious, but interesting to look at for sure.
