Leading independent distributor Entertainment One (eOne) has acquired North American home video and digital rights for the nationally syndicated series Elvira's Movie Macabre, which will arrive in its first two installments of hilariously horrifying "Double Feature DVDs" this June. Presented by Elvira: Mistress of the Dark - the world's sexiest, most outrageous and original movie hostess - Elvira's Movie Macabre was re-launched on over 120 stations across the country this past fall and was instantly praised as "a dream come true for horror fans" (Fangoria).
Featuring Elvira's signature, unflinching, tongue-in-cheek commentary of some of the "greatest" B-movies ever to unspool, eOne's release of all-new Elvira's Movie Macabre "Double Feature DVDs" kicks off with the zombie-themed pairing of George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead with I Eat Your Skin and a double-bill of Hammer Film's The Satanic Rites of Dracula with The Werewolf of Washington. Future DVDs will pair such camp classics as The Terror (starring Boris Karloff and Jack Nicholson) with Eegah and no_ilm|Scared to Death (starring Bela Lugosi) with Manster.
When you hear the name Elvira only one person comes to mind - Halloween icon and quintessential symbol of all things spooky, the one and only Mistress of the Dark. The first horror host ever to be syndicated nationally, Elvira has seen her reign as "Queen of Halloween" span an amazing twenty-nine years, highlighted by two feature films, an IMAX film and two motion control rides. She has appeared in national ad campaigns for Pepsi and Coors, recorded five music CDs, published four books and licensed over 400 products, including two Bally pinball machines, BC Rich guitars, three comic book seriesElvira's "Night Brew" beer, "Evil" perfume and a slot machines from IGT.
