Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Sam Irvin directed this 2001 send-up of the classic horror films of the '50s and '60s. Starring Cassandra Peterson as her tradmark character, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, the film finds the well-endowed goth gal spending the night in a mysterious house while en route to Paris, France, circa 1851. Once there, the spooky gags fly as the movie lampoons everything from the work of Roger Corman to the Hammer films. Along with Peterson, the film also stars Richard O'Brien, Mary Scheer, Scott Atkinson, and Heather Hopper.
