The Monster She Wrote Podcast

Sep 21, 2021

In this 1988 horror comedy, Cassandra Peterson plays her best known role, the Gothic horror host queen, Elvira. In this film (which was co-written by Peterson), Elvira must move to a conservative small town in Massachusetts in order to take care of the affairs of a recently deceased aunt. Elvira’s scandalous ways soon shake up the town, and not everyone wants--including the evil Chastity Pariah--wants her around. Join us as we discuss the movie classic Elvira: Mistress of the Dark.
