The horror camp icon will be celebrating the new milestone exclusively on Shudder with a movie marathon

The one and only Mistress of the Dark makes her long-awaited return to the small screen for a one-night event premiering only the world's greatest horror streaming service, Shudder. As part of their 61 Days of Halloween lineup, Elvira's 40th Anniversary, Very Scary, Very Special Special will also feature a four-film marathon consisting of The City of the Dead, Messiah of Evil, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, and House on Haunted Hill, which was the first horror movie that the entertainment legend ever saw.

The special debuts Saturday, September 25 at 8pm 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 Monday, 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 the previously mentioned horror movie lineup.

“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,” said Elvira.

“Elvira is a legend who’s been lighting up our screens and delighting fans for 40 years, and we’re honored to celebrate the ‘Queen of Halloween’s’ fantastic career milestone with her new ‘very special’ special, the perfect treat for Shudder members this Halloween season,” said Craig Engler, GM of Shudder.

'Elvira's 40th Anniversary, Very Scary, Very Special Special' premieres September 25th only on Shudder.
