Elvira, Mistress of the Dark 07/25/20

Arrow Video

We love Cassandra Peterson, a smart woman who made a go of horror host work in the tough Los Angeles TV market, long after the short-lived Vampira and just a few years after the passing of Sinister Seymour. After Elvira’s Movie Macabre she got to make this lively comedy feature, and thus planted her stake in the cinema firmament while at the top of her game. I’d give it an A+ for nostalgic sentiment, a B for quality, a B+ for wit, even if the adult humor does skew a bit infantile. Well, that was part of the Elvira personality too!   With Edie McClurg and William Morgan Sheppard. On Blu-ray from Arrow Video.
