Trivia

The role of Adrian the stable stud was written to be portrayed by Fabio, who wanted more money than producers could afford. They hired Romanian Gabi Andronache for his looks, but he couldn't speak a word of English. It was quickly decided to dub in an English voice as a parody of the badly dubbed films that Cassandra Peterson had grown up watching, though she wasn't sure that the gag would work until her friend Rob Paulsen started recording his ad-libbed voice-overs many months later.

Great fan fun!
2 October 2002 | by fantasmic1971See all my reviews

I just bought the DVD of Elvira's Haunted Hills today. Elvira's one of my favorite horror hosts (her and Svengoolie). We sure did wait a long time for this movie, and I'm glad to see it finally got made. Some of the sets in this film were really first-rate, and the hokey one-liners can still crack anyone up.

The DVD transfer was very good, both sound & video. There are lots of cool extras on the disc too, including "The Making Of Elvira's Haunted Hills" featurette; Interview with co-star Richard O'Brien and the Original theatrical trailer.

Elvira's Haunted Hills is a lot of fun - you'll enjoy this movie!
