Shudder, AMC’s dedicated horror streaming platform, promised fans “61 days of Halloween” earlier this month and is making good on its word with the announcement of horror icon Elvira hosting a one-night movie marathon.
Elvira’s 40th Anniversary, Very, Very Scary, Very Special Special debuts on Saturday September 25 at 8 p.m. ET in US and Canadian markets via the Shudder TV feed and on demand. The movie lineup includes Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988), House on Haunted Hill (1959), The City of the Dead (1960) and Messiah of Evil (1973) with Elvira providing her signature banter.
“It’s always tough turning 40, but what better way to mark the occasion than a one-night stand with Shudder, the spookiest of streamers? It’s going to be the ultimate Hallow-anniversa-ween bash, and you don’t want to miss it,” said Elvira.
“Elvira is a legend who’s been lighting up our screens and delighting fans for 40 years, and we’re honored to celebrate the ‘Queen of Halloween’s’ fantastic career milestone with her new ‘very special’ special, the perfect treat for Shudder members this Halloween season,” said Craig Engler, GM of Shudder.
