OK. I can't take it anymore. There seems to be some solid speculation that Elvira's House of Horrors will be the next Whizbang boutique game produced by Stern. Cassandra, Dennis, and Greg will all be at TPF in March. Will there be a game announcement at that point? A few people have suggested as such on this forum.

Now this thread is not for people who would not be interested in a third Elvira machine. I'm not interested in hearing from those people. If you wouldn't be interested in it, that's fine. But let's keep this thread for those who would be enthusiastic about another Elvira machine. It goes without saying that I will be first in line should this machine get announced. I have my money ready NOW!

With any luck, this thread will turn from a gossip/rumor thread into an announcement thread and then a reveal thread. I've got my fingers crossed that this will actually happen.

Who else would like another Elvira machine and what are you hoping to see in it? I'm already thrilled with what I see with the color LCD for Aerosmith and can only imagine how great that technology could be used for Elvira.

Edit 3/25/17

It's official! Elvira's House of Horrors is coming!

Edit 9/13/19

Modified with official title now that Stern has shown it in their teaser video.

#2 3 years ago

We need an "official rumor" on this instead of just "official speculation".

Bring on Elvira 3, would be awesome.

#3 3 years ago

I am second in line! All in on the top of the line LE or what ever they end up doing!

#4 3 years ago

I think it wld be awesome and possibly look great beside my restored scared stiff . However i have lost faith in stern and also them making it half as good as its older sisters(especially ss). I'm sure it will be priced like bat66 also and not offer much especially for the price... i hope they prove me wrong tho.

Adam West wasn't at Expo because he likes pinball... Very cool these celebrities from games do end up at the shows lately...

#6 3 years ago

Definitely looking forward to this at TPF.

#7 3 years ago

What if Elvira 3 is more like Big Juicy Melons and less like EATPM or SS? Would you still want it or does it need to be a modern game?

Thats what ive heard as well which is y im not excited . I'm sure many others that have said they are in wld change their mind also....

#9 3 years ago

You know, the himbo who played Flash Gordon is gonna be at tpf also - doesn't mean a new Flash Gordon game is coming out.

Elvira makes personal appearances all the time everywhere. It's her job. Doesn't mean a new Elvira game is coming out.

#10 3 years ago

I would be in for one. No doubt.

#11 3 years ago

I'm looking forward to meeting Elvira and having her sign my EATPM translite.

As far as an Elvira 3 reveal, the rumors are pretty solid. I'm imaging either a re-theme of WNBJM or something similar.

TPF will be a blast either way!

I don't see that as a possibility.

I am hinting to the Mrs. already.

#14 3 years ago

If it is WNBJM re-theme with the crate base being a casket, I am out!

Quoted from Flipperfun:

I sincerely doubt they would re-theme WNBJM a THIRD time...

#16 3 years ago

They just might...gotta get rid of those parts somehow

I'm right there with you guys.
All in , top of line version.
Must complete the trilogy!
Please let it be Elvira 3!!

#20 3 years ago

I hope it's got a funky tune like eatpm.

#21 3 years ago

In the announcement regarding Dennis a few months ago, Stern specifically said it would be a modern game. I fully expect it to be Spike 2 with an LCD.

#22 3 years ago

I am a fan and would love to see Elvira 3. I have both previous games and would love to see a third. However, I would want to see a modern game that pays homage to the other two to make a trilogy. I would NOT buy a Nellie retheme (though I would like to get an actual Nellie someday).

However - unlike BM66 where I took a leap of faith and bought an LE - I'm almost certainly not a day 1 buyer without evidence to show that Stern's playfield issues are behind them and we have some sort of roadmap on what to expect when for code.

And part of me wishes that it's JJP and not Stern doing the game, though I guess it really wouldn't be a fitting sequel if Dennis and Greg weren't involved.

#23 3 years ago

I'd be all in on a third Elvira pin for sure. I'm hoping for a Haunted Hills theme - love that movie.

Another hint dropped by Cassandra today on her twitter account by the way:

#24 3 years ago

Yes. Another hint that she'll be at TPF.

#25 3 years ago

I have both Scared Stiff and Party Monsters, so yeah I'd definitely buy a third Elvira pin. I couldn't do SLE level, but I'd be in for an LE.

#26 3 years ago

As long as it is a modern Stern and not a pabst or melons style.

#27 3 years ago
Quoted from Arcade:

melons style.

Well hopefully there'd still be some "melons" on there or it wouldn't be an Elvira pin!

#28 3 years ago

Chatted with Dennis a good bit at Expo and i seem to remember him saying that that the next thing he was doing with Stern would be a full/modern machine. Also, i got the wink-and-a-nod impression from him that there might be an Elvira 3 in the works, but it wasn't clear which manufacturer that might be with.

Of course, there was a lot of alcohol involved so I could be totally wrong about all of this. I hope not though. I'd love to see any new machine from him, particularly another Elvira.

Elvira is probably the best license in pinball ever.
There's already two, from two different generations; why not make a sick modern one?

Also because they could now use the same sweet color display as Batman uses.

#32 3 years ago

And like Batman, they have some cool retro clips they could use from the Horror hostess days, as well as two movies to take clips from.

Didn't she also put out an album at one stage? Not sure of the quality, but might be some music in there?

#33 3 years ago

This would be great Game Over music.

#34 3 years ago
Quoted from tiesmasc:

I'd still want it! I love WNBJM. On the other, Elvira assets would fill out the new LCD nicely

#35 3 years ago

When I was at Stern around Expo 2016 I discussed the upcoming Whizbang game with Jody. I expressed my hope they would have learned from the pricing of WNBJM and make the next Whizbang game more in the line of Pro pricing. (Yes I realize Pro pricing almost caught up with WNBJM pricing) Jody instantly replied the next Dennis and Greg game will be a very cool and expensive one. As much as I like to see a new Elvira game, I already doubt it will fit in my budget.

-1
#36 3 years ago

Whoa Nellie BJM is not really on my list of games I want to play... not to mention it has been re-purposed as that beer game...even a new art package doesn't make me want to play it. if they just throw the Elvira theme on it and modify the exterior that's just lame and lazy. I hope its a whole new game and awesome too!

Elvira 3? That's hot sex. Would buy.

If he said expensive that probably means BM'66 pricing. Where the Pro is priced as a Premium, and quickly North from there..

You do realise she's 65 now?

Judging from your current collection it should be right in your wheelhouse for budget.

#40 3 years ago

Third in line. Can't wait for the official announcement...

#41 3 years ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

You're right. Super hot sex

#42 3 years ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

She's "hollywood" 65 which probably means she's the wrong side of 70. Still there's a lot to be said for experience. Lots, and lots of experience. Plus, she can tell you about what it was like growing up in the 1950s.

Im in! magicchiz

#44 3 years ago

You DO realize that the machine would be about the character, right? How old would Superman or Batman be now??

#45 3 years ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

You do realise she's 65 now?

Yeah, but the hot sex analogy would be with the idea of owning and playing a new Elvira pin. Not exactly the same as me pretending I've seduced Cassandra Peterson. By the way, she was born Manhattan, KS and grew up near there. Same place I have lived for 15 years. Maybe I'll mention that when I see her at TPF. Might be a good ice breaker.

Another tired, boring, outdated theme for the gross old men. Pass so hard.

Check out the pics of her natural red hair self from the 70's so classy and sexy

I think it's funny all of the people hating on WNBJM. Get a group of friends together and play some multiplayer games on it. It's one of the best 4 player games ever made. Simple but hard to master with good art, custom callouts, and all on the spike system. It's an absolute blast and when setup correctly is harder the GB or IM could ever imagine being.

I'll be happy to see any new Elvira game, apparently I will be the only one disappointed when it's not a throw back stile though.

I about pissed my pants laughing after I saw this statement from an owner of Barb Wire.

Quoted from jgentry:

It's actually not as good as almost every 1970s gottlieb 4 player or late 1970s Bally 4-player, and a bunch of 1970s williams four players. Which isn't a shock because it's based upon a crappy 1950s game. There's very little going on in Nellie and almost no progressive or interesting scoring features. It's a true bat the ball around, keep it in play game where almost everything is worth the same.

I like Nellie, it's fun, but your statement sounds like someone who hasn't played a lot of EMs.
