According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cassandra Peterson, the former Las Vegas showgirl who in the early 1980s gained fame as the raven-haired TV horror-film hostess as Elvira, is taking her act to Shout! Factory. The independent DVD supplier has licensed the entire archive of Elvira-hosted movies, including Elvira's Movie Macabre, the nationally syndicated television series that ran from 1981-86.

Peterson is screening her wraparounds to pick her favorites, and then Shout! Factory will begin the clearance process for the hosted movies not in the public domain.
