Elvira's car's front tag says KICKASS and the back tag says 2MACABRE. While illegal in any state that requires both tags be displayed, this isn't a goof. See more »
I run the movie house.
Oh, really? I'm in movies too! Have you ever shown, uh, "I Married Satan"?
How about the sequel, "I Married Satan 2"?
I, ah... I can only play G-rated movies.
Oh well, there's nothing wrong with G-rated movies, as long as there's lots of sex and violence.

The widescreen version is actually the regular full screen version but with the top and bottom blacked out. This is proven in the scene were the teenagers are watching Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! at the theater. For the scene were a woman with a shopping cart is running from an oversized tomato, the board with rollers the tomato is sitting on is cut off. As is the shot of Elvira's Elvis T-shirt when she suddenly sits-up from her nightmare. This is because the movie was shot in full screen, and matted for theaters. The extra space in the full screen version is dead space that was never meant to be seen. See more »
OK, this movie is stupid. I mean that in a good way though.It was stupid on purpose, and was one of the better "stupid" movies I've seen. The jokes and gags are purposefully bad, but delivered in a way that it struck all the right notes with me. The supporting characters were pretty shallow and mediocre. There is a pretty weak plot, but it works just fine.
Elvira's character is the focus here.She is lovable and adorable.Cassandra Petersen has a world of acting talent that just glows in this movie.On top of that acting talent she had physical attributes which were frankly, stunning. Few men could disagree with that. The parts that show off her figure were also some of the funnier scenes in the movie.
I had a smile ear to ear from the first scene to the last.
Highly recommended to fans of comedy, and to fans of beautiful women. I wish they had made a dozen more Elvia movies.
