Elvira's Movie Macabre
Starring Cassandra Peterson Distributed by eOne Entertainment
There are few horror icons who are instantly recognizable. Karloff, Lugosi, Price, Cushing, Lee ... but there are even less who are women. Arguably the most recognizable of these is the luscious Elvira - Mistress of the Dark and her creator, Cassandra Peterson.
Elvira: Mistress of the Dark has proven to be ageless. Everyone's favorite lady of the late, late evening is just as buoyant as ever, and her new TV series is coming home to DVD to give you good reason to stay up all night. From the Press Release
Election Day is over, and while some are celebrating and others are licking their wounds, here's a new video from the one and only Elvira that's sure to bring a smile to your face no matter which side you're on.

Elvira is one of the horror genre's most instantly recognizable faces. Of course she has a couple of other parts that are equally as recognizable, but that, dear reader, is a completely different story. In any event everyone's favorite television ghoulfriend is coming back to the *ahem* boob toob.
