Stern Announces Elvira!

Click model for pricing and pictures:

Elvira’s House of Horrors builds on the historic, classic and successful 
Elvira and the Party Monsters & Scared Stiff pinball machines. It’s not a 
cornerstone game; it’s a studio game, designed in conjunction with outside 
designers and engineers. Dennis Nordman and Greg Freres collaborated to 
design all Elvira games, including Elvira’s House of Horrors. Dennis 
created the initial playfield designs, and Greg created the art and added 
direction and humor.

Lyman Sheats is as passionate about Elvira’s House of Horrors as Dennis and 
Greg. He insisted on adding his magic to this game, with gameplay and 
rules unlike any other that of any other designer/programmer.

Read the attached Press Release and Feature Matrix for a description and 
details, while reviewing the attached photos. As a short overview, 
Elvira’s House of Horrors is full of gameplay mechanical toys. Elvira’s 
haunted mansion is the middle of the playfield central toy feature. Enter 
from the front door up a ramp or into the cellar when the ramp is lifted.  
Or knock down the Gravestone drop target to enter the garage for multiball 
play. A skill shot leads into the house through the back door. A 
motorized diverter changes the ball path inside the mansion. Lit windows 
and a spinning attic turret, with RGB lighting, guide the player’s 

Other major mechanical action toys include the crypt-opening door blocking 
the entrance to the Deadhead mausoleum with a molded Deadhead toy inside, 
Elvira’s Junk in the Trunk toy on the left ramp, 4 molded Gar-Goils to 
bash, and of course much more.

There are too many mechanical action game toys and too many different ways 
players can play Elvira’s House of Horrors to describe in an email.

Music includes Elvira’s signature theme music plus “Jump, Jive, and Wall” 
and “Shout”. As in earlier Elvira games, Tim Kitzrow provides many of the 
character voices. Greg’s daughter, Lindsey, makes her pinball debut as the 
voice of Aunty Surly.

A first ever for pinball, the star of the title, Elvira, not only speaks 
for herself in Elvira’s House of Horrors, she also acts. Stern has filmed 
Elvira to create exclusive live video footage for Elvira’s House of 
Horrors. We filmed Elvira taunting and teasing players on the game LCD, as 
she and the player battle characters from 26 classic B grade horror movies.  

Elvira’s House of Horrors is the funniest, tongue in cheek Elvira ever.  
Regardless of which language players speak, scenes from the old B grade 
horror movies are in themselves funny. Players will create their own 
humorous movie trailers from these movies to be played at game over. This 
game is funny. Humor works in pinball – it’s fun.

Elvira’s House of Horrors will be made in a Premium, Limited Edition (400)
