Elvira's Movie Macabre: Monstroid
Available on Prime Video, Amazon Freevee
Ten years after experimenting with a batch of LSD known as “Blue Sunshine,” Frannie (Richard Crystal) begins to experience unusual side effects, including excruciating headaches, hair loss and a homicidal rampage that results in his own death. Now, his good friend Jerry (Zalman King) must find the dealer responsible for “Blue Sunshine,” before he’s wrongfully convicted of the murders. Halloween is synonymous with three things: linens with holes cut into them, candy corn that tastes like neither candy nor corn and, of course … Elvira®, Mistress of the Dark. In 1981, the B-movie queen (played to perfection by Cassandra Peterson) began her campaign to bring only the very best—and worst—of schlock cinema to audiences. The result was Elvira’s® Movie Macabre, a television series that featured a different film, infused with Elvira’s® own twist of humor and innuendo, each week. The series lasted five years and made Elvira® the first nationally syndicated horror show hostess to ever hit the airwaves. Not to mention the sexiest Halloween icon since Frankenstein’s bride!
