Fun!

An affectionate (and dead on) parody of Roger Corman horror films and those Hammer horror films.

Elvira and her maid are traveling to Paris for a show. Unfortunately in Romania they get waylaid in a creepy castle with mysterious characters and going ons. Basically the plot is a combo of Corman's "House of Usher" and "The Pit and the Pendulum" with huge dollops from Hammer films thrown in.

Every single cliche in those films is trotted out and hilariously torn apart. Still it's not vicious...just fun. Also the film has a PG-13 rating so the humor is pretty tasteful. Some of the one-liners from Elvira are hysterical and there's even a song and dance number which stops the show. Also the "stable stud" with his purposeful awful dubbing is a scream!

Cassandra Peterson is just perfect as Elvira. Richard O'Brien goes all the way over the top doing a mean Boris Karloff impersonation. Actually, all the cast plays it over the top but it totally fits the material. Also there's beautiful, atmospheric settings and a Hammeresque score to top it all off. Only the ending is a bit of a let down. Still, this is well worth catching. A must see!!!!!
