When the lawyer is reading off the items that Elvira has inherited from her late great aunt, the lawyer is clearly wearing eyeglasses, but when Elvira says, "That's it? The house, a dog, and a book?," even though the lawyer is seen from the back, you can clearly see that he is not wearing eyeglasses. In the next scene, the lawyer is wearing eyeglasses again to announce what Uncle Vincent Talbot has inherited. See more »
I don't doubt that the critics panned this movie, especially the artsy fartsys who need a laxative. This is a great vehicle movie in the tradition of Abbot & Costello or more recently Don Knotts. It won't shake the world or change movies forever. What it will do is entertain. When all is said & done that's the most important thing anyway. Watch this movie & forget your troubles. It even has a simple & kind moral message at no extra charge. I always loved Elvira's TV show when I lived in LA. She did not really steal her schtick from Vampira any more than Vampira did from the original, Theda Bara. This sort of mythic character belongs to whoever does it best; & Cassandra Peterson does it best. Long live Elvira; we need more of these kind of movies. There are never enough. The villain, William Morgan Sheppard, was also excellent. He exudes a wonderful refined malice. I could find no technical faults. The execution is as close to flawless as the art form gets. My profound compliments to the director,James Signorelli,& all his crew.
