Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

She’s back!

Elvira, Horrorland’s hostess with the mostest, busts out on positively bursting-at-the-seams special edition of her big screen debut, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark!

Having just quit her job as a Los Angeles TV horror hostess, Elvira receives the unexpected news that she’s set to inherit part of her great aunt Morgana’s estate. Arriving in the small town of Fallwell, Massachusetts to claim her inheritance, Elvira receives a less than enthusiastic reception from the conservative locals – amongst them, her sinister uncle Vincent, who, unbeknownst to Elvira, is in fact an evil warlock secretly scheming to steal the old family spellbook for his own nefarious ends… 

Campy, quirky and stuffed to the brim with more double entendres than your average Carry On movie, 1988’s Elvira: Mistress of the Dark helped solidify the horror hostess (played by Cassandra Peterson) as a major pop culture icon, here owning every inch of the screen with her quick wit, sass, and of course, cleaving-enhancing gown!

A Haunting Affair

Elvira is one of my absolute favorites from this kind of genre, its funny its horror and Elvira is an amazing personality. I own a couple of different versions, to when the opportunity came up to get this steelbook i handed over my cash immediately. As i will keep my other copies for watching and this as a collectable. I would recommend this movie for anyone who is not entire bought into the horror genre as it has a funny cheesy take on it. Also i would recommend the other Elvira film, known as Elvira's Haunted Hills, which is in the same vein. However, it doesn't come up as a special edition much. I would love to have both of them as Steelbooks Elvira is rightly a horror icon.

Beautiful

Absolutely love everything about this steel book.

Very good

Another solid release from Arrow. I like the art work on this steelbook. Sometimes these are hit or miss but I think this one is cool. Thanks to Zavvi for quick and safe delivery.
