Icon. Influencer. Inspiration. This month, we pay tribute to the trailblazing queen of horror, the mistress of the dark herself, Elvira.
Episode 22: Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (1 hour)
In this episode, we talk about the Ultimate “spooky woman”, the “Queen of Halloween”, and our personal spooky role model: Elvira! We gush about the 1988 film Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, and how Cassandra Peterson created the namesake which turned her into an overnight sensation.
Elvira is not only a spooky woman, but she is also a feminist and gay icon. We discuss how women and queer folks alike turn to her for guidance, comfort and empowerment.
