Great fun game! Not the most difficult one to get to the Stiff-o-Meter, but it's really funny with all the naughty remarks form Elvira.

Scared Stiff is always sure to please any pinny fan. One "hell" of a smooth game playfield layout. Hit the coffin or ride through the skeleton ramp, see the spider spin on the Backlight & listen to Elvira's adult horror comedy speels for maximum enjoyment. A great looking game & a joy to play! Good classic machine!

I have been playing s.s. for 10 years. its fun and fairly challenging. good theme, nice layout. I already own 1 P. B. machine, this will be my second purchase. Durability ???? not sure.

too easy to beat; I beat it in the shortest time i can imagine playing a pinball machine; have to agree with some others, very shallow rule(set); other than that great lighting, sounds, backglass (with the cool spinning spider) and toys.

It may be a little shallow and simple, but i really like this game. The lighting is great, and i simply love the 3D interactive backglass. i would of liked to have seen more games using the backglass as part of the gameplay, not just for show.

I love this game! I can't quite put my finger on it, but there is something about this game that keeps me coming back for more. The rules are fairly simple, and there's not a lot of different things to aim for, but this game is just plain fun! It's on the top of my wishlist, although I'm sure I'll never be able to afford one :(

This machine suffers from poor ratings from pin snobs, and inflated ratings from over enthusiastic newbies. I'll say this. It's PURE fun. And thats what pinball is all about. Sure you can get alot of points way too easily but try achieving that big prize at the end of the rainbow...I bet most of you havent reached it yet. My only beef....price is always WAY too over inflated. You can buy something NIB for just a wee bit more than buying one of these things. Hey, it's your money...

This machine is just fun. It isn't the deepest, or even nearly the deepest ruleset in pinball. But it is a machine that keeps me coming back for more fun.

Elvira is the queen of sexual innuendos. Best adult sound track of any pin. I play this game with goals of hearing as much as I can and collecting all awards on the spider clock.

Scared Stiff, even after having had it in the gameroom for years and years, still keeps me as interested as the first day I got to play it. The shot layout is excellent and the playfield open enough for great multiball wackyness. The subgames aren't that much games really, but real fun nevertheless (especially the two multiballs). Reaching the marvelous intro to the 'Scared Stiff' wizard mode is not too hard to do, but finishing it is quite a challenge. All in all, this game has the perfect balance between fun and difficulty, making it one of my gameroom favourites and definately a keeper!

There have been some comments about this game being unsuitable for children. Personally I disagree. Admittedly, most of the quotes have a slightly naughty double meaning, but nothing any kid would recognize as such. It's mostly what we grown-ups make of them.

Highly recommended!
