The hottest chick of the horror scene is making a comeback in the sequel to cult classic 'Elvira: Mistress of the Dark'.
The Mistress of the Dark teased earlier this year that she was considering working on a sequel to the 1988 cult classic and looks like she wasn't kidding. Cassandra Peterson is indeed working on a sequel to the Halloween classic and we cannot keep calm.
Not to mention, she just turned 68 today. Yes, she's 68 and still killing it while I look like a sack of potatoes. Happy birthday, goth goddess!
Even though Elvira was last seen in Elvira's Haunted Hills, the sequel is going to pick up from where the original movie left. In an interview with ComicBook, Cassandra spilled the beans about the upcoming movie - "My movie that I'm working on now, it's kind of like what happens to Elvira after Mistress of the Dark ends. My second movie, Haunted Hills, was going off on a whole different tangent. Just because I was so in love with the old Roger Corman movies growing up as a kid, and I wanted to make another one, it was based on that."
She went into depth and revealed some plot details as well. "This one that I'm working on I really love because it's like where did Elvira go after she ended up in Las Vegas? Then what'd she do? Did it work out? Did she stay there? That's where this one picks up. We haven't set a specific time, and I probably won't because, with Elvira, it's kind of like time stands still," which is SO true. I mean, just LOOK at her!
But, it will most probably be set in the 80's only. "I kind of see it set in the '80s, so I'd love it to be set in the '80s. The first movie was set in the '80s and this one is still set in the '80s. Whether Elvira is older or not, I don't think it makes that much difference. In general, when I'm in drag, people can't even tell if it's an old picture or a new picture." Okay, I don't know about you but I am super excited for this sequel!
The 1988 movie revolved around a beautiful TV host who quits her job and plans to start her own show. In search of funds, she discovers her deceased great-aunt Morgana has left her a mansion, a recipe book, and a poodle and she decides to go get them.
Upon reaching the small town where her aunt lived, people judge her for wearing revealing clothes and see her as a bad influence.
Elvira is a character full of sass, humor and a whole lot of bosom. A woman with class and sex appeal at the same time, she's the legend the Kardashians want to be (but can't be.)
Even after all these years have passed by, Elvira remains to be a hit among her fans. Still the hottest chick of horror and one of the most dressed up characters during Halloween, she inspires others and does not give a crap about what others think. Will you be checking the sequel to Mistress of Darkness out?
