Elvira returns, with a new Movie Macabre

Recent Boing Boing guestblogger Liz Ohanesian alerts us to an LA Weekly cover story on Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

"Karina Longworth, our film editor, wrote the story," explains Liz. "It's about Elvira's new Movie Macabre. The show is syndicated and will debut on September 25. It's a pretty lengthy story, and a really good read."

      1. I guess what they say about staying out of direct sunlight is true!

        (And probably massive cosmetic surgery. Not that I could blame anyone in her line of work.)

      2. I had the chance to meet her in person in 1998 or 99 and she in full Elvira regalia + makeup. I have a glossy signed 8×10. She’s a sweet beautiful person!

  1. Heh. Good for her. We’re both from the same small city in Kansas (Manhattan), and I’ll watch her just for that!

  2. she’s the same age as my mom, but still looks like a million bucks. And as funny as she is hot, which is a lethal combo in my book. I’d marry her tomorrow if i had half a chance.

  3. Cassandra Peterson is one of my favorite all-time people! Not only as Elvira but she’s helped many animal rights and AIDS charities.

    Plus great news she’s back carrying on the traditions of Svengoolie, Zacherley and Ghoulardi!

  4. Very cool! I always had a huge crush on Elvira and she kept the mind of a young teenage boy now older adult quite entertained when he closed his eyes at night.

  5. She put the hot in goth, and still does! And she comes off as a funny, intelligent person too, which is extra sexy.

  6. Thanks for this titbit! I’m glad you are keeping us abreast. I always enjoyed watching her on the boob tube.

  7. I’d just like to make everyone here happy and tell you that she was just here in Montreal for a comic book convention

    and she walked by surrounded by hot bodyguard chicks heading to her signing table..

    MAN OH MAN you could see a bunch of males turning into Tex Avery
    wolves (me included )

    that’s a hot woman right there.

  8. About 10 years ago I heard an interview with Cassandra Peterson out of character. She was hilarious, the comedic talent just oozed from her everyday persona.

    And by the looks of google images, she’s also balls hot out of makeup. Which is remarkable considering anything could have been under all that.

  9. So happy to see her back on the air! She looks amazing. I just wish she came on a little earlier in Houston. 2:00 a.m. is a little late for me now. Guess my Sundays will be getting off to a late start now.
