Cassandra Peterson’s iconic character Elvira has been the subject of two films, both of which were some time ago. Yet the former horror host with a unique look and personality remains very popular with horror fans, so much so Peterson has expressed a desire to bring back the character once again for a new film.
Appearing at a Q&A session at Salem Horror Fest to celebrate the 30th anniversary screening of 1988’s “Elvira, Mistress of the Dark,” Peterson says she’s written a full treatment and is currently in the process of shopping it around.
Should it be picked up, it more than likely will be for a streaming service and won’t be in cinemas. Streaming outlet Shudder recently brought former horror host Joe Bob Briggs back, presenting several films to fans in a 24-hour marathon, but it proved so popular it wound up crashing the service.
