Elvira Busts Back Into Primetime With New Shudder Special

The Mistress of the Dark is back on the couch!

by Timothy Rawles

Our favorite boob tube hostess is back on the couch and introducing four B-movie treats for Shudder subscribers. On Saturday, September 25, 2021, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark will emcee a horror block as a part of Shudder’s annual “61 Days of Halloween.”

This “very scary, very special special” reunites Elvira with her signature couch and double-entendre commentary for her 40th anniversary on television.

“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.

Craig Engler, GM of Shudder, says this is Shudder’s Halloween treat to horror fans and fans of the fabulous, sexy hostess.

“Elvira is a legend who’s been lighting up our screens and delighting fans for 40 years, and we’re honored 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.”

Check out the promo below and read what’s in Elvira’s lineup. One of the films star the queen of darkness herself.

Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark (1988)

Upon arriving in a small town where she has inherited a rundown mansion, a famous horror hostess battles an evil uncle, and townspeople who want her burned at the stake.

House On Haunted Hill (1959)

William Castle’s gimmick-laden horror thriller is a fairground funhouse 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.

Elvira’s 40th Anniversary, Very Scary, Very Special Special debuts on Shudder Saturday, September 25, 2021 at 8 pm ET in the US and Canada via the Shudder TV feed within the Shudder app and will also be released on demand to all Shudder platforms (US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand) and AMC+ beginning Monday, September 27.
