This documentary fills in the backstories of the making of Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988), as well as much of Cassandra Peterson's career. It also provides a lot of insight into the workings of Hollywood production.

The chainsaw prop used by Sophie was non-functional and lacked a start chord. Whenever actor Lyndsey Craine pulls on the chord to start the chainsaw, she is actually miming the action. Sound design and visual effects were used to make it seem like the blade is spinning. See more »
If I was a Monster Hunter I'd have kept a shotgun above the fireplace.

SPOILER: After the first set of credits, there is a scene in which Sophie, Mona and Beth are barging into a building, ready to take on the next monster. See more »
Book of Monsters stars Lyndsey Craine as Sophie, Who on her 18th birthday, has a party that goes awry. Is it spoilery if I say there are monsters? Or maybe even a Book of Monsters?
Monsters, fun kills, silly practical effects make this an enjoyable watch.
Ok, here is what I jotted down:
What kind of weirdo keeps an open pocket knife in their back pocket?
Has a fun BBC/E4 vibe to it, and I love a lot of Brit tv and movies.
Funny kills and monsters. Who doesn't love killer gnomes in a Evil Dead-ish scene?
I liked the music. A mix of silly overly-dramatic music and synth.
Fun practical effect mixed with the kind of bad CGI that is funny and not just bad.
Bad sound design throughout.
It has a montage, complete with 80s style Jean Claude Van Damme music.
Loved the music in the end credits how it was self aware and funny.
The post credit scene teases what could be a fun TV show similar to the cancelled Crazyhead.
All in all, if you're looking for a fun and entertaining watch that you can toss on and not take too seriously: this is a good choice.
