Head's up Elvira fans! As I promised in my blog post labeled ELVIRA - MISSING IN THE DARK I was going to record the Sunday early morning broadcast on THIS TV of Night of the Living Dead, in the hope that it was Elvira's first airing of her new show Elvira's Movie Macabre. I am wicked pleased to report that it was a success, boils and ghouls!

THIS-TV in Boston MA will be showing Elvira's Movie Macabre on Sunday morning from 5AM - 7AM (with a repeat on Monday at 1AM - 3 AM). Elvira's second episode will be listed under the movie title THE TERROR on October 17 and her third episode will be listed under the movie title THE GIANT GLA MONSTER on October 25.

Thanks to modern technology - okay, the DVR that I rent from Comcast - I don't have to stay up all night to watch Elvira's new show. I did watch her first new show and it was a fine example of Elvira doing her usual puns and double entendres to poke fun at herself and the terrible movies that she is hosting. Personally, I like Night of the Living Dead and have watched it more times now than I can count, so I did not watch the entire film again. However, as I was fast forwarding through it to get to Elvira's host segments, I noticed she was popping up in a small window at the bottom-left side of the screen. She was making jokes and snide comments (Zacherley-style; or MST3K-style for you younger viewers) directed at the characters or events in the movie. I liked this new feature; even if it means I'm going to have to sit though bad films that I've seen before -- in some cases, many times before. Speaking of the movies: Unfortunately, all her films (so far) are Public Domain and if you are a fan of horror hosted films (which I most assuredly am) you have seen all of these many times. Still, Elvira’s sparkling whit does help to make them more enjoyable and I’ll be watching her new show for its entire run.

  1. Thanks Doc! I saw a commerical on my THIS channel at 1:30 a.m. Saturday night (ok well I guess that's Sunday morning) advertising Elvira at 5:00 a.m. So, at least I know I will get it. Thankfully, a friend of mine in Chi-town burned a copy of the first show for me so I had already seen it. Just glad to know we're not crazy in missing the show.

  2. Speak for yourself, J.T.! I'm crazy to spend all this time trying to find the Elvira's Movie Macabre in the first place. I don't think whoever is producing her show is doing a very good job at promoting it. That’s why I think her new show must be being made on a very limited budget – well, that and the fact that all her movies are in the public domain. Still, I’ll continue to support any horror host that manages to make it on broadcast television; which in these times of infomercials and “reality TV” is a small miracle all by itself.
