Horror Hostess With The Mostess, 5 June 2001
Author: Thor2000 from Collinsport, Maine

There are only three horror movie hosts I've ever really liked: Joel Robinson,Mike Nelson and the girl with the big......talent,Elvira. She made the horror movie host segments new again with her larger than life figure and her snappy and hilarious wisecracks during commercial breaks (unfortunately, not to the movie). Elvira set the standard for everyone else and sometimes even broke it in her zeal to become the matron goddess of Halloween. I don't know how many movies she ran, or as the case may be, scurried across her sofa, as she curled up or stretched out in her hostess segments, but she did find a way to make herself the star of her so-bad-its-good horror marathons. Cheers to Elvira for the show, and the wonderful mammaries,I mean memories.
