You know these women. You know their long black dresses, usually with dangerously plunging necklines. You know their jet black hair and “vampy” makeup. You know their sinister sense of humor. They are the horror hosts who made B-Movies on television a fun, and sometimes scandalous, affair. That’s right, today, we are discussing Maila Nurmi and Cassandra Peterson, the women better known as Vampira and Elvira. 

Recommended in this episode: The Chair on Netflix; Vampira: Dark Goddess of Horror by Scott Poole and Yours Cruelly, Elvira by Cassandra Peterson
