Elvira's Movie Macabre on DVD



What up, boils and ghouls!

In case any of you have not been watching Elvira's new show (and if you're not, then you really should be), they will now be available on DVD. Love the cover!!!

From the press release (thanks to STYD for the info!):

Independent distributor Entertainment One has acquired North American home video and digital rights for the nationally syndicated series ELVIRA’S MOVIE MACABRE, which will arrive in its first two installments of hilariously horrifying “Double Feature DVDs” this June. Presented by Elvira: Mistress of the Dark – the world’s sexiest, most outrageous and original movie hostess – ELVIRA’S MOVIE MACABRE was re-launched on over 120 stations across the country this past fall and was instantly praised as “a dream come true for horror fans”.

Featuring Elvira’s signature, unflinching, tongue-in-cheek commentary of some of the “greatest” B-movies ever to unspool, eOne’s release of all-new ELVIRA’S MOVIE MACABRE “Double Feature DVDs” kicks off with the zombie-themed pairing of George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead with I Eat Your Skin and a double-bill of Hammer Film’s The Satanic Rites of Dracula with The Werewolf of Washington. Future DVDs will pair such camp classics as The Terror (starring Boris Karloff and Jack Nicholson) with Eegah! and Scared to Death (starring Bela Lugosi) with Manster.

When you hear the name Elvira only one person comes to mind – Halloween icon and quintessential symbol of all things spooky, the one and only Mistress of the Dark. The first horror host ever to be syndicated nationally, Elvira has seen her reign as “Queen of Halloween” span an amazing twenty-nine years, highlighted by two feature films, an IMAX film and two motion control rides. She has appeared in national ad campaigns for Pepsi and Coors, recorded five music CDs, published four books and licensed over 400 products, including two Bally pinball machines, BC Rich guitars, three comic book series, Elvira’s “Night Brew” beer, “Evil” perfume and a slot machines from IGT. Elvira also boasts the best selling female costume of all time and has just launched a new iPhone App and an online fan club at www.elvira.com.

  1. Still looking hot as can be! It makes me incredibly happy that she's still out there haunting the world of syndication. I'll have to find out if anybody carries her show in my area!

  2. I’ve been watching Elvira on the THIS Network since October 10, 2010. They run her show at the unwatchable hours of 5 – 7 am Saturday and repeat it 1 – 3 am on Sunday! I only watch it because I record it on my DVR. To make recording Elvira’s Movie Macabre difficult, they don’t list the show as Elvira, but as the title of the movie, forcing you to set the recording manually every week instead of setting it up once as a series recording!

    Yet I still recommend watching Elvira, as her comic timing is just as good as ever. I just watched the I Eat Your Skin episode and they ran a parody song to the theme of Gilligan’s Island featuring the characters from the move, which I found hilarious!

    I found the listing for all the THIS affiliate stations and posted them on my blog here: http://guardiansofthegenre.blogspot.com/2010/10/elvira-missing-no-longer-heads-up.html

  3. Same thing here in Philly - our THIS station has it those same crazy times! I guess Saturday at midnight is an insane notion? They had been running their cool "Chiller " block at that time......
