Wow, this was surprising...
22 November 2010 | by kimsey-0000See all my reviews

A couple of months ago, I was watching Elvira's "Movie Macabre" from the 80's on hulu, and anyway I remember last Sunday night when I saw this thinking something like; Man... the way this was filmed sure looks modern for the 80's... and I don't remember the setup being like this...

And I remembered also on hulu watching a show called "The next Elvira" or something, and I said to myself, well if this was filmed now... is this the next Elvira...? She sure looks like Elvira, and acts, and talks like her... so given that... I didn't get it... so I came on here, and to my shock this was a 2010 series (rather than a late 80's rerun), and it IS Cassandra! That's awesome! Geez I have never seen a celeb who retained her feminine beauty like Elvira has, I mean... I have seen some who look *almost* like they used to, but this is the first time I've seen a celeb who still looks *exactly* like she did in every conceivable way... LOL... Man, I'm so glad it was her and not someone new - no one could ever replace the real Elvira on her own show.

Anyway, her wit can sure still make watching good/bad "B" movies better, and even the bad, bad "B" movies good, given the bursts of laughter that came to me right out of the blue while watching; one of my favs is the part where she speaks with the chars in the movie via phone etc... it's edited in such a way that it looks so realistic, a la "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" esquire. Another interesting aspect to the show, is finding out various "B" movies even an avid "B" movie fan has never heard of...

In short, it was just great to see this on the air again! Anyway... see you guys later! - Jimmy in N.GA
