We take a fan request and talk about the 1988 film Elvira, Mistress of the Dark in this weeks episode. A timeless tale about a television host pursuing a dream of Las Vegas stardom, only to get (rightfully) accused of witchcraft, before having to duel dark forces to protect the world from destruction. Y'know, that old story. It's a fun, campy film that flopped hard at the box office, but got high ratings when screened for television. Why? Join us as we explore this question, drop some trivia about the production and cast, and talk about why this is a film you should know about.
If you like our cover art, head over to our YouTube Channel, Celluloid Fever Dreams, and watch a time lapse video of Wyndham creating it, and talking about how Elvira's Movie Macabre shaped his love of films. https://youtu.be/xJX1Gz04Orc
