Dumb comedy with excruciating jokes

ELVIRA'S HAUNTED HILLS is a follow-up to 1988's ELVIRA: MISTRESS OF THE DARK, starring Cassandra Peterson as the TV horror host turned movie star. Peterson certainly looks the part - she's all Morticia wig and barely-concealed bosom - but sadly the quality of jokes in this would-be affectionate spoof of the horror genre is awful, which really drags things down a lot.

The story is set during the 19th century and sees Elvira and her maidservant arriving at a spooky old haunted castle, where the crazed inhabitant is searching for the spirit of his lost love. The only part of this I really appreciated is that it's a spoof of the old Roger Corman/Poe cycle, in particular THE TOMB OF LIGEIA, with Richard O'Brien occupying the Vincent Price role. There are also many nods to the likes of THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM and THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, but instead of genuine wit and warmth the viewer subjected to endless pratfalls and goofy jokes. It overstays its welcome after about fifteen minutes and takes a very long time to end.

HEEEEERE'S JOHANN!

The mildly crude pun in the title is indicative of the humor contained in this film. The humor relies mostly on corny jokes, slapstick, and jokes about Elvira's chest and sexual appetite. Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) shows off her cleavage and unfortunately her age, reminding me of a combination of Mae West and Cher.

Elvira and her traveling companion (Mary Jo Smith) end up in a castle where they pay tribute to a couple of Poe tales. The film is dedicated to Vincent Price who performed those tales rather well. Adrian, The stable man (Gabi Andronache) voice was terribly dubbed as part of the humor.

The humor is aimed at male adolescent. I found the humor to be to stale and corny to be funny.

Parental Guide: No F-bombs, sex, or nudity. Elvira gets groped a bit.

Take THAT, Nicolae Ceaușescu!

This time, the ever campy Mistress of the Dark has to spend the weekend in a Carpathian castle that appears to be based on every Vincent Price movie. Although it takes place in 1851, the beehive-haired hostess never misses a chance to reference popular culture from a more recent era. Although the production was likely the first time that a number of Romanian citizens learned of Elvira, there's the chance that some of them knew about her in the 1980s: I recently read a New York Times article about someone in Ceaușescu-era Romania who obtained pirated copies of movies from the US and showed them. Most of them were apparently action flicks, but one would hope that Elvira was in there somewhere (understanding that her puns probably wouldn't have translated well into Romanian).

The point is, "Elvira's Haunted Hills" is a funny movie, and it's enough to make anyone want to go to Romania. I hear that Dracula's castle is pretty impressive.

Deșteaptă-te, române!
