New ‘Elvira’s House of Horrors’ Pinball Machine Released by Stern Pinball

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, is ready to enter the dark confines of pool halls, arcades, and collector’s homes everywhere this Halloween season with the announcement of her third pinball game, Elvira’s House of Horrors from Stern Pinball.

The game was developed for Stern Pinball by the Whizbang Pinball Studio team of Greg Freres and Dennis Nordman.  Freres and Nordman also developed the first two Elvira pinball games, 1989’s Elvira and the Party Monsters and 1996’s follow-up, Scared Stiff (both produced by Midway-Bally). 

The official Stern Pinball press release describes the chilling story line of the game, stating that Elvira is “Trying to sell her mansion through ‘Alternate Realty’, Elvira’s house is haunted by the movie characters from her past.  These ghouls, ghosts, monsters, and strange assortment of vintage characters with horrific acting skills seek revenge on Elvira while she and the player confront them, sending them back to the ‘film’ from which they came!  Elvira’s House of Horrors immerses players in a fun, campy, B-movie universe filled with all of the humor expected from the Mistress of the Dark including custom speech and, in a pinball first, exclusive filming of Elvira for custom video scenes featured throughout the game!”

Elvira’s House of Horrors pinball machines will be available in premium (standard), limited edition, and signature edition versions.  The premium, limited edition, and signature edition models “…all feature Elvira’s ‘House of Horrors’, a frightening Victorian fixer-upper, full of creepy charm and supernatural surprises.  Players can gain access to the mansion through the front door, the cellar, or through the garage which is guarded by a gravestone drop-target.  An orchestra of color changing RGB lights accentuates the house in sync with the different “House Haunts” featured throughout the game.  Lighted windows and a spinning attic turret track players’ progression on their pinball journey.”

Elvira’s House of Horrors will also feature the “Deadhead Family Crypt” as part of the game play, which is described as a mausoleum that “…houses a variety of characters that need an awakening courtesy of a steel silver ball to their head.  This interactive crypt will keep players on their toes with the Crypt entrance unleashing balls from a separate location while also becoming a physical bash toy.  And with Elvira’s pending move from her hopeful home sale, the interactive Elvira’s ‘Junk in the Trunk’ toy allows players to lock balls for a frantic two-ball multiball.”

The standard machine costs a frightening $7,999 while the limited edition model (400 units worldwide) retails for $9,599 and “…includes additional unique features such as a sequentially numbered plaque, an exclusive mirrored backglass, exclusive custom themed cabinet artwork, a custom autographed bottom arch, exclusive custom art blades, anti-reflection pinball glass, and a shaker motor.”

 

The signature edition model (limited to 50 units globally) carries a ghostly price tag that can only be revealed by calling Stern Pinball offices.  The signature edition version “…includes all features of the limited edition game, plus special hyper-chrome embossed cabinet decals, a personally autographed Elvira collectible trading card with cover and mounting, and a signed special Elvira certificate of authenticity that includes a swatch of fabric from Elvira’s iconic red velvet sofa.”

Stern Pinball has made a habit of producing machine based on popular film and television series, bands, and updated takes on classic pinball machines such as Black Knight: Sword of Rage.

Elvira’s House of Horrors pinball machines are available through authorized Stern Pinball distributors and dealers around the world.
