Halloween is synonymous with three things: linens with holes cut into them, candy corn that tastes like neither candy nor corn and, of course Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. 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! 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.
