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

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A sloppy slapstick throwback to long gone bottom-of-the-bill fare like The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.
More entertaining than much of the big-studio schlock out there.
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.
The campy results make Mel Brooks' Borscht Belt schtick look sophisticated.
[Star] Cassandra Peterson hasn't lost her wit, edge or... ahem--assets...
This horror-comedy doesn't go for the usual obvious laughs at the expense of cheap-looking monsters -- unless you count Elvira's hooters.
