When it comes to iconic horror characters, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark is right up there among the killer ranks of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Regan MacNeil, and Michael Myers as one of the most recognizable and influential faces in the genre.
On this episode of Daily Dead's official podcast, Heather Wixson is joined by special guest Emily von Seele to discuss Cassandra Peterson's beloved horror character, Elvira, who for decades has brought out the humor in horror with wit, charm, and an infectiously fun personality.
Listen as Heather and Emily discuss Peterson's enduring impact on the horror genre, from her time hosting Elvira's Movie Macabre to her starring role in the horror comedy Elvira: Mistress of the Dark to her insightful photo book released in 2016 and beyond!
