Get ready for plenty of tricks and treats during HALLOWEEN IN HELL Month at Mondo Mondays, featuring a flurry of freaky films set on everyone’s favorite spooky holiday!
“Here comes Elvira … there goes the neighborhood!” The one-and-only Queen of Halloween, Elvira, busts out in her “silver scream” debut – a hilariously unholy grab bag of goofy jokes, devilish shenanigans and low-cut gowns guaranteed to have you howling at the moon! When her great aunt dies, famous horror hostess Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) heads for the uptight New England town of Falwell to claim her inheritance of a haunted house, a witch’s cookbook and a punk rock poodle. But once the stuffy locals get an eyeful of the scream queen’s ample assets, all hell busts out and breaks loose. Can the Madonna of the Macabre find love with a studly cinema owner, avoid her creepy great uncle, titillate the town’s teens and become a Las Vegas dance sensation all without being burned alive at the stake? One guess! (Dir. by James Signorelli, 1988, USA, 96 mins., Rated PG-13)
