Elvira’s Movie Macabre


(Cassandra Peterson) Redheaded beauty who donned a long black slinky dress and wig to become Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, hostess of KHJ-TVs horror movie show originating from Los Angeles.


When Peterson was two years of age, she accidentally scalded her body with a kettle of boiling water. Living in Colorado Springs with her father, an insurance agent and her mother, a costume shop owner, Cassandra had to cope with her disfigurement and the jeers of childhood companions who called her a “monster.”

Now that she’s a horror show hostess she gets to flaunt her scars (only her facial and cleavage areas didn’t suffer severe burns).
