Elvira does it better.
30 July 2002 | by lucastleSee all my reviews

The version I saw actually ran closer to 27 minutes. The plot of the pilot episode (and premise of the series itself) of "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch" is actually very similar to The Elvira Show. Elvira does it better though, and was there first with it. It would be nice to see Elvira market this as a Halloween tape/DVD. Or maybe she could just include it as a bonus extra on the "Elvira's Haunted Hills" DVD whenever it gets pressed. -Arthur-
