    Must-see fare for fans of the bosomy camp horror queen.

    Peterson and her longtime writing partner, John Paragon, as well as director Sam Irvin, clearly worship the Poe-inspired Roger Corman/Vincent Price films of the 1960s, so of course there’s a pit and a pendulum in that dungeon, but who’d have expected it to be so beautifully designed?
  3. 50
    Elvira fans could hardly ask for more.
  4. Don't go to this movie looking to be actually scared, but as a gothic romp it's surprisingly effective.
  5. 50
    At 52, Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) still looks a treat and, more important, effortlessly wields her double entendres like a Romanian Mae West.
  6. It's so cheerfully cheesy, you can't help but be amused.

    She's like Bob Hope with fake breasts and a wig. Now, that's scary.
