Movie Reviews: Elvira Mistress Of The Dark + 30 others

Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark (1988)
In this annoying gimmick movie, cheap horror hostess Elvira ends up in a small conservative town when her great aunt dies. Elvira needs $50,000 to finance her Las Vegas stage show but all she gets is a house, a dog and a book. Her evil uncle (W Morgan Sheppard) and his pervert minion (Jeff Conaway of ‘Babylon 5’) are out to get her.

The local kids are fascinated by her but the town harridan (Edie McClurg) plots against her. Elvira bangs the local himbo Bob to the horror of his ex Patty. Cue sex jokes, magic, an orgy and an attempted witch-burning. This was amusing in places especially Kurt Fuller as yet another local pervert but Elvira is a tiresome annoying idiot.

Best Lines:
“Pinko heavy metal weirdoes.”

“I never laid a hand on those sheep so help me!”

“Here, you forgot your axe.”

“Your famous tic tac pie.”

“Is this face taken?”

Phenomena (1985)
A girl goes to school in Switzerland. She can control insects and there have been horrible murders. This stars Jennifer Connelly and was directed by Dario Argento. This has a swimming pool full of rotting corpses, a chimp waving a razor, flies, Donald Pleasence and Patrick Bauchau and was crap.

Snakes On A Plane (2006)
Crap, good theme song though.

Zulu (1963)
I don’t care.

Blade is a teacher by day and a teacher by night.

Dull animation.

Rain Man (1988)

Nosferatu The Vampyre (1979)
Klaus Kinski stars in this over-stylised vampire flick.

Over Her Dead Body aka Enid Is Sleeping (1990)
An adulterous couple ‘kill’ the wife and try to hide the body. It isn’t funny and is reprehensible.

Necronomicon (1993)
An adaptation of three Lovecraft stories, not good.

Cat’s Eye (1985)

Katherine Heigl’s old shame.

Heather Langenkamp sighs.

Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1978)
Amateurish and disturbing.

Forget it.
