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! When a small Colombian village is viciously attacked by a creature from a nearby lake, a corrupt chemical company sends a specialist (Jim Mitchum) to destroy the beast and cover up their involvement with its creation. Inspired by a true story!
