What it is, though, is a wild, tongue-in-cheek, faaaaabulous homage to those really, really bad slasher movies that somehow get financing and a distribution deal. The whole thing plays like an inside joke, only you're in on it. If the movie strikes you at first as awful, realize that the awfulness is on purpose. If it seems way over the top and, frankly, totally unbelievable, even for a horror movie, keep in mind that the movie-makers intended it to be that way.
I knew absolutely nothing about this movie or the people who made it, but I learned that the woman who plays the "Elvira" character was in it. Cassandra Peterson has starred in a couple of spoofy comedy movies as "Elvira" and I enjoyed their campy-ness, as well as Ms. Peterson's adorable, stand-out personality and talent as a comedic actress.
In this movie, Ms. Peterson plays a concerned mother of a teenage boy. The "Elvira" costume, wig, and makeup are gone. She plays the role straight--i.e., no buffoonery or hamming it up. And even though she isn't using comedy to "act," her skills as a dramatic actress shine and are just as fascinating to watch. She isn't given a lot of screen time, but that's okay because her brief appearance lends a spark of credibility to the motion picture.
It's also deliciously ironic that Ms. Peterson does not appear in "drag" as Elvira because there is so much drag in the rest of the movie. The man who directed the film also stars in it as a female -- a big, overly exaggerated version of a female, to be precise.Read more ›
The story concerns a mousy librarian with an axe to grind, when her evil step mother threatens the future of her inherited movie theater. Unknowingly have her crime filmed by security camera, she screens the murder as an accidental short film, bringing business back to the Victoria. But the show must go on, and Deborah has a few more vic- I mean, movies to cut!
The movie is quite an enjoyable roller coaster ride, with some truly genuine moments of hilarity counterbalanced by some awesome gore. The performances were top notch and a few moments with Peaches are played for humor will get a hardy chuckle, there literally isn't a dull moment in this film. I highly recommend this future cult classic!
