Movieing On #169: Elvira: Mistress of the Dark

37 mins - Published Mon, Nov 23, 2015 by Breki Tomasson, Jon Shute, Rachel Wake and Toerag

Andrew’s away this week, so Jon steps in to take his place in what might be the most buxom episode of Movieing On ever to be recorded. Unfortunately, however, it’s another one of those days where everybody just likes the movie enough for there to be a dearth of discussion to be had about it – it’s hard to find anything to discuss when everybody just genuinely likes the movie in question.

Still, we all had a good time, and that’s what counts; right?

  • Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988) (
    When her great aunt dies, famous horror hostess Elvira heads for the uptight New England town Falwell to claim her inheritance of a haunted house, a witch’s cookbook and a punk rock poodle. But once the stuffy locals get an eyeful of the scream queen’s ample assets, all hell busts out and breaks loose. Can the Madonna of the Macabre find love with a studly cinema owner, avoid her creepy great uncle, titillate the town’s teens and become a Las Vegas dance sensation – all without being burned alive at the stake?

Movieing On

Movieing On was a project that we've wanted to do for a long time, and the pieces all fell together in March of 2012, when we began planning the first episode. Featuring some of the CSICON crew's most amazing people, we watch a movie from 1999 or earlier and discuss it.
