Elvira Makes Her Return In Shudder 40th Anniversary Special

This year marks the 40th Anniversary for the horror host/icon Elvira. And AMC Networks’ premium streamer is celebrating with a one-night movie marathon event, Elvira’s 40th Anniversary, Very Scary, Very Special Special.

The special debuts on Saturday, September 25 at 8 pm ET in the US and Canada via the Shudder TV feed within the Shudder app and will also be released on demand to all Shudder platforms (US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand) and AMC+ beginning September 27. Similar to the cult classic, late-night television series Elvira’s Movie Macabre, which debuted in 1981, Elvira will lend her own blend of witty commentary to a horror movie lineup that includes Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, House on Haunted Hill, The City of the Dead and Messiah of Evil.

"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." - Elvira

The line-up for the horror marathon includes:

  • Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark (1988)

  • House On Haunted Hill (1959)

  • The City Of The Dead (1960)

  • Messiah Of Evil (1973)
