It’s Not Halloween Without Elvira!

It’s the spooking season, and I would know. But it just wouldn’t be official without the Queen of Halloween herself, ELVIRA!  Thanks to Hulu, the Hostess with the Mostess is back to do what she does best, showing her fawning audience the goods! You know… showing off the best of the B-Movies!

Elvira has been sorely missed from the airwaves since her quest to find a successor in The Search of the Next Elvira in 2008, only making occasional TV and Film appearances.  Although that hasn’t kept her away from the stage as she’s recently returned to her live show at Knott’s Scary Farm, this year performing her Elvira’s Big Top dance and comedy show.  She’s also been co-hosting the Comikaze Expo with comic book legend Stan Lee since 2012, giving nerds the gothic fetish fix that they love so much.

Gather together you groovy ghoulies, the Queen is back!
