Well I wouldn't have rented this actually, but my Dad grabbed it for me in the store (likely because he wanted to check out Elvira). The story is that Elvira hosts a horror show (what a stretch), but she ends up inheriting a relative's house which happens to be filled with magical stuff. The townsfolk don't exactly seem fond of her and in fact she faces charges of witchcraft. The jokes are lame and well it's not exactly of a serious nature. It's not really much of a horror film either when it all comes down, more of a comedy aimed at those who like sex and horror. It's tolerable but not exactly earth shattering or anything, and if you are looking for a satisfying horror film I can assure you that this isn't it. On the other hand if you are looking for something Addams Familyesque then this may be the tree you'll want to bark up.
