Synopsis

Amazon.com
While there's some overlap between this collection and Elvira Presents Haunted Hits, devotees of Elvira herself will probably find themselves more bewitched on this release, since the Mistress of the Dark's mark is more palpable. She duets with B-52's frontman Fred Schneider on the so-goofy-it's-great "Here Comes the Bride of Frankenstein" and even tries her hand--well, OK, her larynx--at hip-hop on the scaaaaary "Monsta Rap." For good measure, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince Will Smith get an opportunity for a rebuttal to the latter, in the form of "A Nightmare on My Street." Other holiday staples like Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash" and Joey Gaynor's instantly recognizable "Addams Family" theme round out the short but sweet set. --David Sprague

CD Reviews

This CD was worth every drop.......

"That's right, drop. If the following is not true, may I fall down dead now. I was in Jacksonville, North Carolina (home of Camp Lejeune). I was on Western Blvd at the NABI Plasma Donation Center. See I used to donate Plasma regularly, twice a week. I made an average of about $78.00 a month doing it. As a side note, I once let them inject me with rabies so they could use my Plasma as a vaccine.But anyway after one particular day I received my money and headed to the Jacksonville Mall. I had nothing to do but walk around. I ended up going to the music store and saw this CD. I bought it with my blood money.All that being said, this CD comes out every Halloween, it's a tradition in my home, much like Bob Rivers at Christmas. The highpoint of this album is Elvira's own 'Monster Rap'. (Everybody Groooooove, everybody clap!). She raps about every monster you could imagine at the time of release (Freedy Kruger gives good glove!) I was very happy that she made reference to my favorite monster of all time, Jason Voorhees.Also included is the original 'Monster Mash'. And though we get Alice Cooper's 'Feed my Frankenstein', I always believed his 'Teenage Frankenstein' was a superior song. There's a weird little Frank Sinatra type song dealing with the Addams Family, and who could forget the original 'Little Demon' by Screamin Jay?Also Elvira sings another song called 'Here comes the Bride' it's about Frankenstein's wedding of course. Elvira can sing and she could have rivaled Streisand if she wanted too, but thank God Cassandra prefers the burlesque of her Elvira character. The intro and outro are very tongue in cheek (I said HITS!)The only bad thing I can say about this CD is Will Smith's Nightmare on My Street'. I always skip it because Will sucks and so do his songs and movies.Plus the cover is super sexy."
Monster Hits a real trick and treat!

"Elvira's third compilation CD has a variety of styles of music each with a demented Halloween theme. The CD contains hits of passed Halloweens while The Mistress of the Dark herself adds two original tracks. Monsta Rap is a hip-hop ride throught the monsters of our day, and Here Comes the Bride, offers a rock and roll haunted wedding. An outstanding CD which you'll enjoy all year round!"
Essential Halloween listening!!!

"This collection will surely get you excited about Halloween. Great for your parties, dances, trick-or-treaters, or even just to listen in the car.The CD's single greatest moment is on "Monsta Rap", when ELVIRA does a parody of MADONNA's "Vogue" that will surely make you "die" laughing!"
