The lovely Cassandra Peterson dons her famous black dress and wig for the big screen in this hilarious 1988 cult-camp-comedy-classic, and the result is a good time for all! Well, maybe not ALL. Naturally, the humor can get a bit racy, though it's a far cry from today's downright shameless standards! In "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark," Cassandra reprises her legendary TV horror hostess role as the character comes to a turning point in her career. Frustrated with an unsatisfying job and blatant sexual harassment from her new boss, the always intrepid Elvira drops everything to pursue her dream of doing her own show in Las Vegas. She THINKS her agent has arranged everything, but gets a rude awakening when she discovers that SHE must come up with fifty thousand dollars to secure the theater. With perfect timing, a message arrives with news of Elvira's mysterious great aunt's sudden passing and requesting her presence at the reading of the will. Elvira's hope is restored, and she packs her bags and hits the road to Massachusetts!

Unfortunately, once Elvira arrives in the small Rockwellian town to which she has been summoned, she discovers that she has only inherited a house, a book, and a dog, none of which she has any use for. Things are only made worse by the fact that the local townsfolk do not want her around; that is, all except for the teenagers who admire her and the men who desire her. In-between fending off unwanted advances and worrying about how she can make worthless lemons into profitable lemonade, Elvira somehow finds the time to take the local kids under her wing and pursue the naive town beefcake as well. In fact, she develops one ingenious solution to bring all of her pet projects together: Putting on a late-night movie show for the kids at her beau's downtown movie theater!

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Cassandra Peterson stars as everyone's favourite campy horror hostess Elvira, in her debut starring film ELVIRA MISTRESS OF THE DARK. Filled with the kind of cornball fun that only she can provide, the movie is a laugh-a-minute campfest.

Fired from her late-night Public Access television show, Elvira gets another chance at fame and fortune when her long-lost Great Aunt Morgana dies and leaves her as the sole heir of the will. It's off to the small G-rated town of Falwell (get it?!), where Elvira soon finds herself a duck out of water in a community full of dim-witted yokels, led by Chastity Pariah (Edie McClurg).

Can Elvira manage to save her skin--before the town morality leaders decide to burn her as a witch? And what the heck was the "secret ingrediant" in Elvira's casserole?!

ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK is full of the same fun and campy good humour that marked her appearances hosting "Elvira's Movie Macabre" on television. She has an instantly appealing comedy style and holds the entire film together with her zany character. The cast also includes William Morgan Shepperd, Susan Kellerman, Jeff Conaway, Daniel Greene and Pat Crawford-Brown.

The DVD from Anchor Bay includes a great new anamorphic print (with 5.1 Chace Digital sound mix); plus bonus Cassandra Peterson bio pages and trailers.

(Single-sided, single-layer disc).

Format: DVD
Dispite what Leonard Maltin has to say about this film, Elvira's huge, uh, ratings proves that she is definately no slouch when it comes to making a great comedy. Weither you are young or old, Elvira is one person you just gotta love. A great send-up to old horror movies, and a few recent pop-culture favorites, this movie doesn't miss a beat. From Elvira's failed attempt at cooking to her standing ovulation Flashdance number, you just have to laugh. Starring as a bored Horror Hostess on a local syndicated network, Elvira soon discovers that she has an inheritance from a long lost aunt. She leaves her crummy job and sets out to find her fortune. Little does she know she's inherited more than she's bargained for. Like the knowledge that she's decended from a major mata-physical celebrity! From then on she must contend with an evil sorcerous uncle, a shy hunky local, a jealous girl named Patty and a nosey gossip who's catty, all while trying to keep up that gorgeous do! (Try saying THAT three times fast.) Watch this movie and you'll agree, Elvira is just too funny for words.

Camp is the best word to describe this film. Camp just oozes from every moment of Elvira's film debut. From the outrageous costumes, hilarious one liners and double entendras, simplistic characters and flimsy plot, this films greatest desire is to shock you into laughter. Thankfully, it succeedes in spades.
After only having a bad VHS copy for years I was amazed at how clear and crisp the image on this DVD is. I found myslef wondering if restoration had been done on the image since blacks are so deep and colors are so vibrant. Even the special effects seem more real. Thank goodness it's all presented in widescreen, so you can enjoy all the crisp images.
Bonus wise, the disk is pretty skimpy, but what's offered is great. The teaser and trailer are suprisingly thight and funny and I found the bio on Cassandra Patterson quite informative. Keep your eyes open for an easter egg or two!
If you like Camp, sexual plays on words and double entendras, you can't do much better than Elvira. Three cheers for her big opening!
