Elvira's Movie Macabre
Release Date: 9/25/2007
 
 In 1981 the B-movie queen (played to perfection by Cassandra Peterson) began her campaign to bring only the very best—and worst—of schlock cinema to audiences. The result was Elvira’s Movie Macabre, a television series that featured a different film, infused with Elvira’s own twist of humor and innuendo, each week. The series lasted five years and made Elvira the first nationally syndicated horror show hostess to ever hit the airwaves. Not to mention the sexiest Halloween icon since Frankenstein’s bride!

Maneater Of Hydra -- While vacationing in the Mediterranean, a group of tourists pays to spend a weekend exploring a lush island occupied by the botanist Baron von Weser (Cameron Mitchell). Their money will fund the continuation of his experiments, but their blood will feed the demented Baron’s carnivorous plants.

The House That Screamed -- Headmistress Madame Fourneau (Lilli Palmer) runs her French boarding school for troubled girls with an iron fist. Still, one by one, her students are going missing without a single trace of evidence left behind. Are the girls escaping Fourneau’s absolute authority and their torturous 19th-century social conditioning? Or are they being taken against their will?
