After a long (13 years) absence since her first motion picture (1988's Elvira, Mistress of the Dark) the wise cracking horror hostess is back. Now it's the mid 19th Century, the setting Transylvania, the star none other than Elvira. While en route to Paris, to star in "Yes, I Can Can," Elvira and her robust French maid Zou Zou find themselves in creepy mysterious castle Helsebus.
A foolish choice to hitch a ride on a stage coach lands them in Weird Central, where the family is cursed, the Master of the House (played by Rocky Horror's Richard O'Brien) is a lunatic, and Elvira apparently bears a striking (like a frying pan across the head) resemblance to the House's late lady, Elura who was said to have committed suicide exactly ten years to the day. However one is lead to believe foul play was involved, that one happens to be Elvira.
Can Elvira survive this creepy castle and its inhabitants for two full days and nights? Will she escape and make it to Paris? Or will she suffer the same fate of Elura Helsebus?
---
This movie pays fiendishly fun homage to the old Corman/Poe, Vincent Price flicks of the 1950's. Complete with dramatic sets, secret passages, curses, wall entombment and even a pit complete with full swinging (and actually dangerous just ask Elvira) pendulum.
While Elvira fans will find this gothic romp a hilarious hay ride, non Elvira fans are sure to find something to enjoy. Besides Elvira's gravity defying pair this movie actually proves to hold up against today's market of CGI laden movies, with Hollywood big names and multi million dollar budgets.
All said and done, Elvira's Haunted Hills are definitely worth surveying. Mr. Price would be proud.

If you don't know who Elvira (actress Cassandra Peterson) is, I'd certainly recommend that you find out before investing in this DVD reissue. Elvira fans will undoubtedly proclaim "Elvira's Haunted Hills" as a masterpiece of comic horror. Some less enthusiastic for the Mistress of the Dark shtick, however, might dismiss the movie as utter nonsense. In truth, the movie successfully serves up the Elvira brand of deadpan humor, double entendres, and mild sexual silliness all by spoofing the haunted house films of yesteryear. This is a cheesy homage to the exact type of movie that Elvira presented as a television horror hostess--and the tale fits her character persona comfortably. It won't necessarily be embraced by everyone--but its fans will be vocal and fervent. Already available on DVD, "Elvira's Haunted Hills" is getting a major upgrade for its ten year anniversary. And if you love the movie, you won't want to miss this one!

Elvira plays a buxom ingenue named Elvira (what else?) traveling through the Carpathian Mountains of Romania with her faithful maid (Mary Jo Smith). It's a treacherous journey, to be sure, but she must make it to Paris to captivate society with her dubious singing ability. After a bit of slapstick mayhem, she hitches a ride with a dashing doctor who takes her for a stay in a nearby castle. Bad mistake! The estate is inhabited by a deranged Lord (Richard O'Brien of Rocky Horror fame), his second wife, a plucky niece, and a hunky handyman. Elvira is the spitting image of the Lord's first wife. And as the circumstances of her death seem shrouded in mystery, Elvira's brassy presence is a bit off-putting to everyone involved. Of course, aficionados of this type of film will delight in the expected plot rendered through a new vision of silliness.

The ten year anniversary edition of ELVIRA'S HAUNTED HILLS is an absolute must for fans - and many others too for that matter! Besides the gorgeous new print of this amazing camp parody there is a myriad of reasons why you'd want to own the new enhanced edition; mainly for the entirely new revealing and interesting featurettes that provide some awesome behind the scenes making of gossip behind Elvira's second feature film.

ELVIRA'S HAUNTED HILLS was made in Transylvania on a cobweb of a budget of a $1 million dollars in 1999 (or was it 2000?), as compared to the big studio ELVIRA MISTRESS OF THE DARK which cost $14 million back in 1987. You wouldn't have known it as the films sets, look, and atmosphere that was captured often excels Elvira's first feature and more than matches the films it pays homage to in gothic grandure. What has unfortunitely been missed by the casual fan and audience member who are not familiar with the source material from which it is pulled from is how well ELVIRA'S HAUNTED HILLS pays a campy homage to the Vincent Price, Roger Corman, Edgar Allen Poe films of the 1960s. To have the Elvira character forever imprinted in the 1850's period composite of the story/themes is absolutely perfect - the brilliance of this idea and how well it was pulled together often tragically goes unreconized to most viewers.

With all the new special features we learn of the many details, drama, and delirium that enshrowded this crazy cauldron of comedy. While it was mostly exciting and fun for the cast and crew we learn it was most strenuous for its star Cassandra (Elvira) Peterson. This being an independant venture meant that she wore many hats (witches no doubt!
