When you hear the name Elviraonly one person comes to mind... Halloween icon and quintessential symbol of all things spooky, the one and only Mistress of the Dark.
Back in 1981, who could have imagined the hostess of a local Hollywood Horror movie show would grow to become a household name? Elvira was the first horror host ever to be syndicated nationally and has emerged as one of today's most original and outrageoous pop culture characters.
Elvira's reign as 'Queen of Halloween' has spanned more than three decades and includes two feature films, an IMAX film, motion control rides, music CD's and books. She has appeared in National ad campaigns for Pepsi and Coors and licensed over 450 products including pinball machines, guitars, 3 comic book series, beer, wine, perfume, slot machines and the best selling female costume of all time.
She has given countless interviews and made hundreds of film, television and live appearances - including The Grammy Awards, Saturday Night Live, Two MTV specials, Monday Night Football, NBC's Search for the Next Elvira, RuPauls's Drag Race, Celebrity Ghost Stories, Oddities, and Counting Cars.
She most recently co-wrote and starred in twenty-six episodes of Elvira's Movie Macabre, organized an 'indie' horror film festival Elvira's Horror Hunt, and became part owner of LA pop culture convention Stan Lee's Comikaze.
