We recently reported that the Mistress of the Dark is returning soon to host horror flicks in Hulu's 13 Nights of Elvira. Now you can get a taste of the humor to come, as Hulu and Brainstorm Media have provided us with a clip in which Elvira offers witty remarks on 1985's Trancers and Oscar winner Helen Hunt before imagining what she would say upon winning an Academy Award.

Cassandra Peterson stars as the legendary horror hostess on Hulu’s 13 Nights of Elvira, streaming exclusively on the site beginning October 19th and running through Halloween. Each night Elvira will introduce a fright film and offer occasional comedic commentary—a setup similar to her Movie Macabre performances. Here's the official schedule:

  • Puppet Master (1989) Monday, Oct. 20
  • Demonic Toys (1992) Tuesday, Oct. 21
