THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED - 1.5 Stars
Set in Victorian-era France, there's a boarding school for naughty girls who are forced to take showers with their clothes on, take turns meeting the firewood delivery man in the shed for a little action, and where the head mistresses 16 year old son has an obsession with spying on the girls and then making them disappear. This flick had potential to shed a bunch of T & A, but alas... it didn't. Nothing, except a clothed shower scene (yup, that's right, clothed). Unfortunately, that's all this film had going for it, making it a slow moving drivel of boarding school hell. Hell for the viewer, as it was boring beyond belief. It did have some higher production values that made it at least nice to look at, but other than that... I don't even know if you could call this a horror flick. Just a drama with creepy musical overtures from time to time.
ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK - 3 Stars
Elvira is back once again making crappy movies semi-worth watching, throwing a little fun in the process. Taken straight from the original 'Movie Macabre' TV show she hosted in the early 1980s, her commentary on each flick is priceless, as she doesn't hold back when she tells you how bad these movies are. She knows it, you know it... and now it's time to sit back and laugh at it. Or at least try to. They don't make shows like this anymore, so it's likely that feeling of nostalgia that makes every second Elvira is on the screen sing with pure enjoyment. Somewhat dated (it is the 80s), and jokes that are only half-way amusing, it's Elvira's charm and her rockin' cleavage that escalates this from being crap to classic entertainment.
Audio: 2.0 across the board, and what you'd expect from a crappy VHS tape.
Before the menu, each disc gets a trailer for The Search For the Next Elvira, a Reality-TV series starting this October on Fox. Also an entertaining ad for Stubbs the Zombie Soundtrack, and a trailer for Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper.
