Wonderfully Wicked
18 December 2000 | by (hendersonville,tennessee) – See all my reviews

Why was this ever cancelled ? It was so wonderful as it tended to cross the ground that Mike and the Bots feared to tread on. Elvira was the Queen of the Horror Hostesses. They'll never be another one like her unless we figure out cloning! On the other hand, if monster movies have taught me anything, we don't need any fifty foot Elvira clones running around loose.
