"Yeah, go ahead and fire me. I need this job like a leper needs a three-way mirror!"

Every year or two I remember that this movie if funny, silly and quite a bit different than just about anything else out there. If you are looking for a silly comedy that incorporates casual witchcraft, really bad puns and double entendre, the 1980s and boobs, then you should see this movie. This movie has a pretty familiar plot: Elvira (the outcast weirdo) needs a fresh start, so she moves to a sleepy little boring town where she shakes things up, much to the dismay of the local squares. No, I didn't write "SPOILERS." If you consider that a spoiler, then you sure haven't seen any 80s comedies before, because that's just about all of them. What makes this movie different and charming is Elvira herself. She is corny, overdone and more than a little bit inappropriate. Her two favorite co-stars are worth the cost of the DVD all by themselves.
I paid about $6 and received a single DVD in a case. It is a real produced disc (not a DVD-R) and the presentation is nice, but no -frills. I watched the movie and I was pleased with the quality of the audio and video. It wasn't really impressive, but for a cheap movie that was shot almost 30 years ago on FILM (whatever that is), or possibly on video tape (that was a thing, right?). . . it was good enough.
If you are easily offended by comedic depictions of witchcraft, really blatant sexual references and (probably) some mild bad language. . . stay away. Personally, I find everything in the movie to be too cutesy to be offensive, but I wouldn't let anyone under 14 or so see this movie. Parents should check it out before letting kids anywhere near it.
