Light Dawns on Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

By Mark Ramsey | 2011/01/02


Hosting stale old horror movies is an ugly business, but somebody has to do it, and for years the somebody who is easiest on the eyes is Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.  Now Elvira has a new show, Elvira’s Movie Macabre (airing in on a channel near you).

I have seen just about every episode and I can tell you in no uncertain terms that Elvira is the highlight of these movies.

Tune into this conversation I had recently with the owner of Elvira’s trademark, one Cassandra Peterson.  She sounds quite a lot like Elvira but I suspect that’s just a coincidence.

Discover who would win a throwdown between Elvira and Joe Bog Briggs.  Find out which of Elvira’s movies she actually wishes she were in.  Discover how much money has to be spent remastering movies that never had a right to be mastered in the first place.

Thanks to Cassandra Peterson for her time and for a fun conversation.  And go watch Elvira’s Movie Macabre!
