When her great aunt dies, famous horror hostess Elvira heads for the uptight New England town Falwell to claim her inheritance of a haunted house, a witch’s cookbook and a punk rock poodle. But once the stuffy locals get an eyeful of the scream queen’s ample assets, all hell busts out and breaks loose. Can the Madonna of the Macabre find love with a studly cinema owner, avoid her creepy great uncle, titillate the town’s teens and become a Las Vegas dance sensation all without being burned alive at the stake?

This is one of the most fun films to come out of 1988, and certainly the best movie staring everyone’s favorite horror hostess. Showing Elvira in real life, or what we all wish was her real life, as the badass goth goddess we all know her to be – There’s plenty of Corruption of Youth, Witchcraft and making straight-laced people nervous, for all to enjoy.

A great, fun, teen movie to enjoy around Halloween, and one of my guilty pleasures.
