Elvira explains how horror movies are good for you in new promo video for Netflix & Chills with Dr. Elvira. Elvira, Mistress of the Dark is a campy, busty and horrortastic late-night B-movie host who has been on the horror scene since the early 80s. The character was created in order to fill the void left by Larry Vincent, a popular late night B-movie host in L.A. Elvira, aka Cassandra Peterson, has made a career out of playing the part of the late-night sexy/spooky hostess, creating an entire brand around it, leading to everything from merchandise to Elvira collectibles to comic books to movies and more.
Peterson has made appearances in multiple shows and movies throughout the years, both as Elvira and in other roles. She appeared in Tim Burton’s Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure as a female biker and has popped up in a variety of reality shows, from The Girls Next Door to Last Man Standing to Face Off. Elvira has also appeared in animated form, showing up in a number of straight-to-video Scooby-Doo films.
