Elvira quits her job as a horror host after being sexually harassed by the station’s new owner and forms a plan to start her own show in the heart of Las Vegas. Upon learning that her great-aunt Morgana has passed away, Elvira travels to the town of Falwell to claim her inheritance, only to find herself stranded when her Macabre Mobile’s engine blows up.
