Elvira's Movie Macabre series to return fall 2010

On Elvira's MySpace page, she announced that "Elvira's Movie Macabre" series will return this fall with brand-new episodes. The show's syndicated, so times and channels will vary depending on the markets.

SOURCE: Shock Till You Drop.

So which movies do you think Elvira will rip next?

Wow...Peterson is getting pretty old for this isn't she? I wonder if she will actually be on the show. Wasn't there some game show that picked a new girl to be 'Elvira' a few years back?

58, and while not bad looking for that age, definitely well past her prime. I've no doubt she's still got the right attitude for the role, but IMO it could easily be a case of "spirit is willing but the flesh is arthritic".

I could see a bit of character re-invention that would justify a role for her (even leading) in such a show, but stepping into the old cleavage display act would indeed be a fright fest.

She's always worn a pound of make up and just sat on a couch, she can probably get away with it for another 10 years. Maybe more.

I'll check it out. I'm an admitted sucker for her.

She looks good. Not as good as her prime in the 1980s, but she's held up better than most people her age have. And that was her in the MySpace commercial promoting the MM return, and so she can still pull it off.

Thanks for suggesting to check her MySpace. She doesnt just look good she looks great! I'd kill to look that good at 58.

Hope she can track down something worth while to present. I haven't seen every movie but I have seen just about everything. The presentation will make or break her show. I don't see this lasting at all which is a real shame. Mostly cause she will need to track down movies worth while. By today's high tech standard and attention spans I just don't know.

I'll agree with the opinion that she looks great for 58. I don't think there will be any problem at all, and I hope that there isn't too much talk about her age here or anywhere else..I would hate to think that potential new viewers would be turned away because of reading about "how old" she is etc.

I'm reasonably obsessed with Horror Hosts, and see this as a welcome reunion! At the moment, the closest thing i get where I live is "Far Out Cinema", and the BS beatnik routine is SSSSOOOOOOOO lame, it's painful (even though I love 90% of the movies they show).

I'll actually ask around at The Monster Bash this weekend to see if anyone else has heard anything more about it (as at least a half-dozen horror hosts are scheduled to be there)

Very cool news! I met her twice within the last few years (once in Elvira costume and once in normal Cassandra Peterson mode) and she indeed looks quite good, obviously she is a bit older but I have seen women in their 30s who can't hold a candle to her.
That being said, I always loved her show when I was growing up...it's how I saw New Years Evil, The Blood On Satan's Claw, Tombs of the Blind Dead, and so many other movies for the first time! She is my favorite of the the horror hosts...and it will be great having her back doing what she does best.

Me too,my first viewings of all of those was on MOVIE MACABRE.Brings back fun memories of a time when there was something on late night syndicated TV besides infomercials and EXTRA.

Wow, I'm excited for this! I've seen so many bad horror movies over the years that would have been much more entertaining with Elvira's running commentary. Hope she can find an audience this time around - it's a very different TV/entertainment world today than it was 30 years ago.

I thought I read that Petersen invested all her own money to get the "Haunted Hills" movie finished. Didn't she end up divorced and broke from that?
