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.

The first releases likely will be out in time for Halloween 2006.
