Elvira's Haunted Hills
is a 2002 film
directed by Sam Irvin
. The movie made its premiere at the International Rocky Horror Fan Convention on June 23
The setting is Carpathia
. The year is 1851
. When Elvira and her maidservant Ziou Ziou (Mary Jo Smith) gets kicked out of an inn for a slight monetary discrepancy, she is rescued by a local who takes her to stay at the castle in the hills high above the village. The fact that she happens to resemble the count's (Richard O'Brien
) former "missing" wife opens a can of worms or two.
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.
The part of Elura is credited as "????", dedicated to Vincent Price.
