When her Great Aunt dies, famed horror hostess Elvira heads for the uptight New England town of 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?

- Elvira makes her Big Screem Debut in her Hot New Comedy.
- Unpleasant Dreams...
- Here comes elvira... there goes the neighbourhood!
- Bob Redding: I, ah... I can only play G-rated movies. Elvira: Oh well, there's nothing wrong with G-rated movies, as long as there's lots of sex and violence.
Chastity Pariah: I don't know who you are or where you came from but you most certainly don't fit in this town. Why, you don't even fit in that dress. Elvira: Listen sister, if I want your opinion, I'll beat it out of you.
Elvira: Bloody Mary. Bartender: No hard liquor served past eight o'clock. Do you want a virgin? Elvira: Maybe, but, ah... I'll have a couple of drinks first.
Mrs. Morissey: Oh Mister Talbot, your sister was like a mother to me. Vincent Talbot: She was a mother to me too, dear. Well, now that we've dispensed with the obligatory display of bereavement, you may begin the proceedings, Mister Bigelow.
Patty: Seems to me it's all this cheap little tart's fault. Elvira: Cheap. Who are you callin' cheap? What's that perfume you're wearing, catch of the day?
- After Cassandra Peterson made a small, cameo appearance in Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985), her good friend Paul Reubens wanted to return the favor for her film vehicle. Unfortunately, his film, Big Top Pee-wee (1988), and her film were being filmed simultaneously.
The anchorwoman played by Tress MacNeille is based on a real anchorwoman Cassandra Peterson didn't get along with during her days at a local television station.
During the scene in which Elvira is being burned at the stake, the heat from the flames was so intense that it melted Cassandra Peterson's black Elvira wig.
Cameo: [John Paragon] the gas station attendant.
Elvira has a line of dialogue about Roger Corman's films. This film was distributed by New World Pictures, a company owned by Corman.
