Elvira is all sarky, smutty sex positivity, making a prominent display of her two best assets: her verbal wit, and her ability to laugh at everything and everyone including, first and foremost, herself. Full Review

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark is stupid fun, a distaff, gothic version of Pee-wee's Playhouse. Full Review

A predictable plot and cheapskate effects deaden Elvira's occasional witty lines, while references to the horror genre make the film busy without going anywhere. Full Review

Product Description:

A goofy, campy, poke at puritanism and a sly wink at a host of horror films, ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK is much more fun than it has any right to be. Dreaming of financing her own show in Las Vegas, Elvira leaves Hollywood in her customized "Macabremoblie" to claim what she thought was an inheritance. However, upon arriving in Fallwell, MA, all she finds is two drooling yokels, an overzealous morality brigade and a creepy great-uncle with more on his mind than long-lost relatives. With her penchant for double entendres and low cut dresses, Elvira scandalizes the town and soon finds herself in danger of being burned at the stake, jeopardizing her chances of ever making it to Vegas.

Plot Synopsis:

A buxom, down-on-her-luck TV host inherits a spooky house. The slinky, outrageous Elvira shocks and delights the straitlaced community. To get back to Vegas, she has to fend off horny villagers and sell the house, malevolent spirits included.
