New Elvira Movie Planned as Cassandra Peterson Shops Treatment

Portrayed by actress Cassandra Peterson, the horror host quickly made a name for herself on the TV series Elvira's Movie Macabre, presenting a variety of spooky films for genre fans to enjoy. Her unique look and personality would make her one of pop culture's most memorable characters, and she remains very popular with horror fans to this day. Recognizing this, Peterson has the desire to bring back the beloved character once again for a New Elvira Movie, and she's already written a treatment!

Killer Klowns from Outer Space Creator Teases New Trilogy Plans

Killer Klowns from Outer Space Creator Teases New Trilogy Plans
Back in March, Steven Chiodo, the director of the beloved 1988 horror cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space, revealed in a podcast interview that he wants to start a new trilogy, in the form of a TV series. The filmmaker, who was working on the project with his brother Charles Chiodo and Edward Chiodo, described the project as a "requel," which is a hybrid of both a reboot and a sequel. The filmmaker offered another update, and while nothing is set in stone quite yet, the filmmaker is confident that this unique project will happen. Here's what he had to say below during a recent podcast appearance.

"There's nothing coming out that you could guarantee. Look, Hollywood is a very fickle industry. We've been working on a sequel since the day after we made Killer Klowns from Outer Space. I mean we have tons of ideas on different directions we can take it.

Ultimate Horror Poll: All the honorable mentions that didn't make the cut

Ultimate Horror Poll: All the honorable mentions that didn't make the cut
In our ongoing recap of last week's Ultimate Horror Poll -- in which over 100 genre experts helped determine the 100 greatest horror movies of all time by voting for their personal "ten best" -- the time has come to take stock of every honorable mention and clarification given by the survey's participants that weren't included in the original piece. To be clear, voters weren't asked for honorable mentions specifically; but a handful felt strongly enough about their "bubbling under" choices to list them anyway (which proved extraordinarily useful in helping break ties on the Top 100). See below for a full listing, as well as explanations from Bloody-Disgusting founder/editor-in-chief Brad Miska and director Corin Hardy ("The Hallow") on why they voted the way they did. Honorable Mentions: Barbara Crampton (Actor, "Re-Animator") Dracula (1931) Jaws (1975) Nosferatu (1922) Poltergeist (1982) Vampyr (1932) Brad Miska (Founder/Editor-in-Chief, Bloody-Disgusting.com; Producer) -- See Full Explanations Below Beetlejuice (1988) Bill & Ted's

Exclusive: 10 Questions with Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

In honor of the Halloween season, we thought we'd chat with one of the genre's most iconic characters, the one and only Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, as portrayed by the lovely Cassandra Peterson. Read on for our ten questions with one of our favorite Scream Queens.

1. How did the Elvira character come about?

Elvira: I was with The Groundlings comedy improv group for four years before Elvira came along. My fellow Groundlings at the time were Paul Reubens (Pee-wee Herman), the late Phil Hartman of "Saturday Night Live" fame, Lorraine Newman, John Lovitz, Julia Sweeny, etc. etc. Many, many working actors have spawned careers at The Groundlings. (If you're ever in La, check them out at their theatre on Melrose Avenue.)

As budding actresses tend to do, I auditioned nearly every day so when I heard that a local Hollywood TV station was looking for a horror host,

Elvira's Movie Macabre arrives to DVD with The Terror, The Brain That Wouldn't Die & more

Elvira's Movie Macabre Woo hoo! I have to say I am so glad that Elvira has returned back to the small screen and hosting trashy late night horror movies.

Thankfully the good folks over at eOne (Entertainment One) have picked up the rights to bring Elvira and her all new episodes to DVD so that people like myself who can't catch it on TV, can at least watch on DVD. After already releasing two DVD's that included titles like Night of the Living Dead, The Satantic Rites of Dracula, etc., eOne is bringing more episodes to DVD this summer.
