Writer/star Cassandra Peterson asked for a stuffed toy for a gag in the movie in which she backs over a black cat's tail, but the Romanian crew returned with a brown kangaroo. The toy was dyed black and used, and an insert of a real cat was later shot in California. See more »
When Elvira and the doctor are riding in the carriage to the castle he removes one of her long, lace-up boots. Seconds later the carriage hits a bump and Elvira is tossed outside where she hangs onto the carriage. As she is looking down (over the edge of a cliff) we see that both boots are back on. See more »
Your cloak, ma'am?

Your gloves, ma'am?
Your shoes, ma'am?

This movie gets an 'A+' for trying to be a 'B-' movie.
The BEST worst movie ever! This movie was fantastic! Anyone who can watch "horror" movies and have a good laugh at the corny stuff that makes it to screen today should see this movie. And best of all, it's not a "dirty" movie with lots of unnecessary nudity and bad language like some other horror movies or even spoofs of horror movies. No gag is too cliché; no pun is unworthy of being exploited; no opportunity for a cheap laugh passed up. But this isn't a kids' movie! Elvira is the Mistress of the Night for good reason, and she makes sure you know why...while keeping the rating a very tame PG13. But she still manages to make sure that everything is in good fun!
