½ Bit late in the day for a sequel isn't it?! The first film came out way back in 88! Despite the long hiatus Peterson still looks the business I gotta admit. Her two best friends are still big n bold whilst the rest of her still appears to be pretty fit. As for the film, well its a bit of a change of pace from the first. Where as the first was a light-hearted, slightly cheeky, goofy horror which was at least treated like a proper film.
This sequel is more like a British 'Carry On' comedy, kinda leaning towards a spoof with cheesy slapstick, cheesy dialog, cheesy sets, hammy acting and of course lots of childish sexual innuendos.what did you expect? It seems to be a prequel if anything as the film is set in the 18th Century in the Carpathian mountains. Elvira and her maid are running from their landlord trying to skip the bill and get picked by a caddish professor who takes them to the local cursed castle. Whilst there various silly things happen as the plot unravels in a 'who dunnit?' Type murder mystery/family curse type of thing. Nothing to do with the first film.
Its all very stupid and looks pretty cheap, the only real highlight for me was the rare sight of Richard O'Brien portraying the castles owner Lord Vladimere Hellsubus (great name). Not sure why the cult star has agreed to star in this puerile silliness, I guess a chance to simply let loose and chew up the scenery perhaps. Influenced by Hammer Horror and Roger Corman films yet much much more B-movie-ish.
Elvira's Haunted Hills is a 2001 comedy horror film directed by Sam Irvin. The film premiered at the International Rocky Horror Fan Convention on June 23, 2001.

Its still reasonable fun but I guess you gotta like the character of Elvira, mind you if you like trashy horror/spook flicks then this might appeal also. I quite liked it for the atmosphere and outrageous characters, camp fun. Ralink Rt5390r 802.11bgn Wifi Adapter Driver Windows 8 on this page. The Mistress of the Dark is back for another terrifying adventure in Elvira's Haunted Hills. Set in 1851 Carpathia, cabaret performer Elvira is offered food and shelter at a local castle, but she starts to suspect that something mysterious is going on when she discovers that the lord's dead wife looks exactly like her. The film is basically an homage to the Hammer Horror and Vincent Prince films of the '60s, and on that level it sort of works.
However, the performances are rather weak, and Elvira's sass and attitude seem out of place in this setting. The directing is also lackluster and doesn't add much to the material. Elvira's Haunted Hills isn't quite as clever or as fun as the first film, but it tries some interesting things and delivers a few laughs. Install Flash On Server 2012.
Elvira's Haunted Hills. OK for Elvira Fans! For those that aren't aware. Elvira is the alter ego of Cassandra Peterson who was born September 17, 1949. Elvira gained fame on the Los Angeles television station KHJ wearing a black, gothic, cleavage-enhancing gown as host of Movie Macabre, a weekly horror movie presentation, from 1981 - 1993. Her wickedly vampish appearance was offset by her comical character, quick witted personality and Valley girl-type speech. Although when portraying the Elvira character she wears a large black wig, Peterson herself is a natural redhead.
