Elvira's Haunted Hills is a sequel to Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, directed by Sam Irvin. The film premiered at the International Rocky Horror Fan Convention on June 23, 2001.

Plot[edit]

In 1851 in Carpathia, Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) and her maidservant Zou Zou (Mary Jo Smith), on their way to a can-can revue in Paris, get kicked out of an inn for a slight monetary discrepancy. After making their way out of the village, they are rescued by Dr. Bradley Bradley (Scott Atkinson), who takes them to stay at the Castle Hellsubus, in the hills high above the village. While there Elvira meets the residents—and discovers that she happens to resemble the deceased former wife (Peterson herself, in a dual role) of his Lordship the Count Vladimere Hellsubus (Richard O'Brien).

  • Cassandra Peterson as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark/Lady Elura Hellsubus

The film fondly parodies most of the Roger Corman-directed Edgar Allan Poe films and the British horror films from Hammer Studios. Mention of this is made on the featurette contained within the DVD of the film.
