Cassandra Peterson invites her fans to join her in a film marathon at Shudder as she revives her amazing horror hostess Elvira for the character’s 40th birthday. The appropriate a thoughtful name Elvira’s 40th Anniversary, Very Creepy, Very Special Special will premiere on the dedicated horror streaming platform on September 25 at 8:00 PM ET. The Live Special will then be available upon request with Shudder other content via their app next Monday. While this is considered an anniversary special, it should be remembered that fellow horror host Joe Bob Briggs’ debut brought a single special to the platform in 2018 and shortly thereafter it was transformed into a weekly series. With Elvira’s huge fan base, there are many who sign up for a beat and a heartbeat if the same thing were to happen here.
“It’s always difficult turns 40, but as a better way to mark the occasion than a one-night stand with Shake, the scariest of streamers? It’s going to be the ultimate hello-anniversa-ween bash, and you do not want to miss it, “Elvira said in a statement.
Shudder GM, Craig Engler, added his own thoughts on the upcoming specialty and how happy the platform is to host the host, “Elvira is a legend that has illuminated our screens and captivated fans for 40 years, and we are honored to celebrate the ‘Queen of Halloween’ fantastic career milestone with her new ‘very special’ special, the perfect treat for Shudder members this Halloween season. “
The classic line-up of films that Elvira has for her specialties in business begins with some self-esteem, as she imagines Elvira, mistress of darkness, the film that tells the story of a famous horror hostess who inherits a villa, has to confront an evil uncle in a city full of people who want to burn her at the game. Next up is the classic Vincent Price thriller, House around Haunted Hill, that’s the old story of five guests having to spend the night in a supposedly haunted mansion for a cash prize – in this case the now rather soft sum of $ 10,000. Third in the quartet is The city of the dead, this time featuring another horror icon Christopher Lee who takes the lead as he takes a student to the site of a witch-burning from the 17th Finally, The Messiah of Evil closes the night, an independent horror about a young woman in search of her long-missing father, who stumbles upon a small coastal town led by an undead cult.
Elvira herself will of course show up a lot in and around these movies to provide her information and comments on all the features, and since this is a special anniversary event, you can probably expect some surprises along the way.
Elvira’s 40th Anniversary, Very Creepy, Very Special Special will air live on Shudder TV on September 25th, and then appear on demand on September 27th. Thank you to our best friends Bloody-disgusting for the sheep.
