Join the dodos of THE DEUCE for a kind of “birthday-bash” – when Deuce-Jockey Jeff revisits that September night of his 1988 youth spent in awestruck ecstasy at the Times Square Theatre with ELVIRA: MISTRESS OF THE DARK! (aka: ELVIRA®: MISTRESS OF THE DARK™!)… B-picture: MARRIED TO THE MOB!
Cassandra Peterson’s infectiously engaging horror-hostess from Heaven hits the big screen in a scream of a frightfully funny flick that revels in ribaldry and ridiculousness… Double-Ds and double entendres!
When local TV-looney and her punk-rock pooch inherit a hoary house in fundamentalist Fallwell, Massachusetts – things get incendiary! Eager-beaver Edie McGlurg gets the town on a witch-hunt against our hilarious hero, while mean-uncle W. Morgan Sheppard will stop at nothing to get her “magical cookbook”!
Packed as full as Peterson’s seemingly painted-on dress with purposely corny punch-lines, sight-gags, and slapstick, ELVIRA®: MISTRESS OF THE DARK™ is pointedly light-hearted, goofy, and gonzo… with a go-for-broke Las Vegas musical number that will leave you spinning in giddy delight!!!
Former SNL and EASY MONEY director, James Signorelli lets Elvira loose to do her own thing in this bodacious, bawdy, B-movie tribute to bimbo-dom!
