If you've ever enjoyed those wonderfully dreadful late night mystery-thrillers of the past, you'll go wild over this clever, wacky, uproarious farce. Young Priscilla Del Mar has journeyed into the country with her superstitious cousin Patsy to view "The Old Dark House," her inheritance from a weird uncle who was known to have carried on even weirder experiments! The property has burned down under those well known suspicious circumstances, and the girls are forced to take shelter in the home of Dr. Gorilla, a legendary master criminal. Unknown to the girls, guests at a nearby "home for the upset" have also invaded the premises: the feuding Grandma Hatfield, Lizzie Borden, and Sweet Alice Blue Goon. A few of the strange experiments from "The Old Dark House"seem to be on the loose, too! Of course there are disappearing corpses; manic, mile-a-minute chase scenes; and all manner of inspired lunacy.
