|Elvira's Haunted Hills Region 1 NTSC DVD
Richard O'Brien movie
|back to the Videos page back to the Cellar|
Well if you're going to choose an actor from Rocky to star alongside Elvira, who better than Richard O'Brien?
As the screen notes put it........
So what do we think of it? Well (and remember this review is writen without the aid of strong drink)....it's not too bad at all. A sort of Corman meets Carry On. Very 'B' movie and something most 'Rocky' fans might enjoy for the homage it pays to the horror movies of years gone by. The movie got a PG-13 in the USA, I doubt if it would get a 12 over here, I wouldn't feel uncomfortable showing the film to my kids. Really it's what we call a 'post-Rocky-party-movie', the kind of film we'd decide to put on at three in the morning after attending a screening when everyone decides to crash at the one house and drink has been consumed. The dubbed stable-hand gag might of course add to the experience there!
Richard certainly gets into the character and the disc contains some nice extras in the way of a 'Making Of' documentary and a nice interview with Richard himself. There is also the original trailer and some nice images in the 'Photo Gallery'.
Picture quality is not the best we've seen and the 5.1 sound isn't used to any great effect, the disc is presented in an original 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen format though.
Final TimeWarp rating? We like it! But we won't spoil the ending by telling you what happens to Richard!
Starring: Cassandra Peterson, Richard O'Brien, Mary Sheer, Scott Atkinson, Mary Jo Smith, Heather Hopper - Director: Sam Irvin
