From HorrorSociety.com, great news about my favorite queeen of the undead. I met her a couple of years ago and she couldn’t have been any nicer…

For those readers who may be unaware, Elvira’s Movie Macabre returned in October 2010. While her show is mostly screening old fan favorites, a few new titles from the 70s and 80s have been added to the list. More importantly, all the introductions, breaks, hosting, and shenanigans are brand new. This is a special treat for Elvira fans who have been waiting for her return to horror hosting. New episodes of Elvira’s Movie Macabre are airing in over 100 of the biggest cities in America. Check here to see if it is airing in your city: Elvira\’s Movie Macabre Listings.
