Elvira's Haunted Hills
Sam Irvin directed this 2001 send-up of the classic horror films of the '50s and '60s. Starring Cassandra Peterson as her tradmark character, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, the film finds the well-endowed goth gal spending the night in a mysterious house while en route to Paris, France, circa 1851. Once there, the spooky gags fly as the movie lampoons everything from the work of Roger Corman to the Hammer films. Along with Peterson, the film also stars Richard O'Brien, Mary Scheer, Scott Atkinson, and Heather Hopper. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sloppy slapstick throwback to long gone bottom-of-the-bill fare like The Ghost and Mr. Chicken."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"The campy results make Mel Brooks' Borscht Belt schtick look sophisticated."
‑ Mark Rahner, Seattle Times
"This horror-comedy doesn't go for the usual obvious laughs at the expense of cheap-looking monsters -- unless you count Elvira's hooters."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"More entertaining than much of the big-studio schlock out there."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"[Star] Cassandra Peterson hasn't lost her wit, edge or... ahem--assets..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
""Plague. Schmague. I have a show to do in Paris." If that makes you chuckle, Elvira is for you."
‑ Brandon Judell, PopcornQ
"While Peterson and her ageless alter ego keep an ironic detachment from the melodramatics, there's no irony in the end-title dedication to Price -- it obviously comes straight from the heart."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Elvira fans could hardly ask for more."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
