Elvira: Mistress of the Dark – Unpleasant Dreams…

This entry was posted in Comedy, DVD, Videos & Movies, Horror by Snowfoxx on

This 1988 film raked in the cash back in the day, but it’s easy to see why. Cassandra Peterson brings her bigger than life alter personae to the big screen after years as a horror-film hostess on the small screen. She appears to be a woman of easy virtue, in her slinky, low-cut black dress that she might have borrowed from Morticia Addams, but some men find out the wrong way how choosy she actually is.

In this particular adventure, Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) is slated to have a live show as a headliner at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, but at the beginning, she is still working at a local San Diego station doing what she is best know for. The staff members introduce her to the new station owner, and the first thing he wants to do is get his hands on her chest, thus starting a running gag that follows her from California to Massachusetts, which where Elvira needs to go. Her agent, Manny (Charles Woolf) says The Flamingo is not going to let her do her show unless she puts up some support cash for the show, and they want $50,000. Just as she learns this, she gets a telegram informing her of a late aunt Morgana Talbot has passed, and she is to inherit something from her will. Elvira packs up her big black convertible with the spiderweb grille and the pentacle steering wheel, and heads east to Fallwell, Mass.

Sniglet of the Day : May 15

Sniglet Of The DayMagnocartic (mag no KAR tik) – n. Any automobile that, when left unattended, attracts shopping carts.

It’s another mystery we’ve yet to unravel, like the place where we lose socks in the wash, or where ball-point pens disappear to, or where that room is in Heaven for every balloon that got away. Why are certain cars magnocartic? They aren’t of a particular make or model. They could be anything from a Cadillac De Ville to an old Ford pick-up truck to a Toyota Echo, but for some reason, shopping carts are attracted to it like bees to a rose bush or kids to a playground. Here’s hoping that the owners of these cars are apathetic to door dings, because those carts are not known for being delicate around anything, as a mother who has had her heels clipped too many times by a helpful child can tell you. Maybe it is not the same cars every time, but those car owners are going to have a rough time of it digging their vehicle out once they are done shopping. You can only hope that someday your own car does not receive the curse of being magnocartic, because it is random. Most likely a type of dark magic practiced by door-ding gnomes to make their work easier. Those fiendish little gimps!
