Elvira, bless her, has rarely been all that funny... and yet , somehow, her persona is a profound comic statement all by itself.
Love you, Elvira!
This depiction of small town Massachusetts in the 1980s is quite incongruous with my experience of growing up there.
For one thing, it needs a lot more people dropping acid and listening to Cannibal Corpse every day. For another, no self respecting Massachusetts town would a allow ten-pin alley to open. Candlepin only, please.
Of course I recognized the opening UFO shot within a fraction of a second.
I actually heard Zappa's Roxy and Elsewhere BEFORE I ever saw It Conquered the World.
In the better universe we split off from after Montauk, Elvira and Pee Wee Herman got married and had 9 kids, one of which becomes the president in 2020.
The sudden thematic shift 2/3rds of the way through is charmingly bizarre.
i have and will always adore this movie. let my comment history stand to show that fact.
