ELVIRA Returns To Screens With A New Special This Month On SHUDDER!

That’s right, the one and only ‘Mistress of the Dark‘, ELVIRA is set to return to screens on September 27 with ELVIRA’S 40th ANNIVERSARY, VERY SCARY, VERY SPECIAL SPECIAL on SHUDDER.

Beloved Halloween queen of camp Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) will return for this marathon event, lending her own blend of witty commentary to a horror movie lineup that includes HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959), THE CITY OF THE DEAD (1960) and MESSIAH OF EVIL (1973).

It’s always tough turning 40, but what better way to mark the occasion than a one-night stand with SHUDDER, the spookiest of streamers? It’s going to be the ultimate Hallow-anniversa-ween bash and you don’t want to miss it,” said Elvira.

Elvira is a legend who’s been lighting up our screens and delighting fans for 40 years, and we’re honoured to celebrate the ‘Queen of Halloween’s’ fantastic career milestone with her new ‘very special’ special, the perfect treat for Shudder members this Halloween season,” said Craig Engler, GM of Shudder.

ELVIRA’S 40th ANNIVERSARY, VERY SCARY, VERY SPECIAL SPECIAL includes the following films:

HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959)
William Castle’s gimmick-laden horror thriller is a fairground fun house come to life. Vincent Price stars as a suave eccentric millionaire married to a beautiful and greedy gold digger. Together they are hosting a party in a sinister haunted house. Five guests are invited to spend the night and each will get $10,000 – but only if they survive until morning. The doors are locked at midnight. Will you make it out alive?

THE CITY OF THE DEAD (1960)
In this atmospheric classic, a professor (horror icon Christopher Lee) sends a student to Whitewood, Massachusetts, the site of 17th century witch burnings. Once there, she learns the satanic secrets that live on.

MESSIAH OF EVIL (1973)
A young woman goes searching for her missing artist father. Her journey takes her to a strange Californian seaside town governed by a mysterious undead cult. William Huyck & Gloria Katz’s hypnotic, unsettling independent horror is a must-see gem.
