Despite its mildly raunchy tone and obsession with Peterson's considerable cleavage, the film is a decent, good-hearted comedy that never takes itself seriously.

It's not just dumb fun. The script contains a few genuinely smart one-liners (even if the relentless flood of innuendo will weary even the hardiest Carry On fans) and there's far more to Elvira than a perilously plunging neckline.

It may not be the comedy that re-invented horror comedies, but Elvira's feature film debut is an entertaining and raunchy foray...

But there's nothing dark about Elvira's cleavage.

A predictable plot and cheapskate effects deaden Elvira's occasional witty lines, while references to the horror genre make the film busy without going anywhere.

With a solid humor lineage...Elvira: Mistress of the Dark is one of the best comedies of the late 80s.

Goofy, enjoyable, and it might have been better if it didn't try to please everybody.

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark is stupid fun, a distaff, gothic version of Pee-wee's Playhouse.
