Too goofy to be sexy, too desperate for laughs to be funny, camp comedian Elvira spoils this 2001 send-up of Roger Corman's low-budget Poe adaptations. Stranded at an isolated castle on a dark and stormy night, the heroine becomes enmeshed in the lives of a dysfunctional aristocratic family headed by the evil but tortured Richard O'Brien (The Rocky Horror Picture Show). Director Sam Irvin superbly re-creates the look and feel of those old American International releases, right down to the eccentric camerawork. The script (by Elvira and John Paragon) might have yielded a witty homage, but it's undermined by the star, who overplays mercilessly, telegraphing her punch lines and delivering numerous jokes about her bust. 89 min.
