Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (AMI)
Elvira: Mistress of the Dark is a horror-themed point-and-click adventure game developed by Adventure Soft under their Horror Soft moniker. Despite being titled after the movie of the same name, the game has a completely original story not related to the movie.
In this game, Elvira inherits a medieval castle that her uncle left to her. She decides to turn the place into a tourist location. However, doing this awakens the spirit of her evil ancestor Emelda, who is now trying to reincarnate herself. The player, an unnamed ghostbuster, is hired by Elvira to slay Emelda and free the castle from her evil grip. To do this, you must solve clever puzzles and fight off hordes of monsters and guards, both living and undead. You can also collect certain ingredients for spells that Elvira can make you.
The game would go on to spawn a sequel, Elvira II: The Jaws of Cerberus, and later a game considered as a spiritual sequel, WaxWorks. Though the latter has nothing to do with the first two games, it used the same engine, and was officially included in Elvira's Horror Pack. As its two successors, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark features a large amount of death/game over scenes.

The Amiga and Atari ST versions of the game share the same music and composer, Dave Hasler. Dave did a pretty good job with the soundtrack, making each song atmospheric. Specifically, the Garden track is a favorite among fans.
