Take The Mistress of the Dark Home With You

New DVD release


Everyone's favorite horror movie host makes her first appearance as a title character in the feature film Elvira: Mistress of the Dark. Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) quits her television job in Los Angeles because of fallout with the new station owner, and she heads to uptight New England to claim an inheritance. Upon arriving, she finds her great aunt has left her a punked-out poodle, a tatty book of potions and spells and an old haunted house. Comedy ensues as the stuffy residents of Falwell get an eyeful of Elvira's assets, her villainous great uncle (W. Morgan Sheppard) tries to steal the powerful book of spells, and a romance blossoms between the macabre mistress and a local cinema owner.
