What we’re Enjoying

As Jay finishes up his 31 Days of Horror articles, he found a cool series on Epix called Blumhouse’s Compendium of Horror. It is a great and quick history of horror movies through the years. Shua has been working on his art by watching videos of how to draw Mid Century art. It’s always good to practice your craft.

Enjoy Elvira! 

You may not know who Cassandra Peterson is, but surely you’ve heard of Elvira. That’s the persona that Peterson created to host a show called Movie Macabre in 1981. But she built up to that career as Mistress of the Dark. Modeling, Dancing, singing in an Italian rock band, even dating Elvis. But once Elvira was out of the box, there was no stopping her. TV, comics, movies, even hosting Halloween parties at public events. She has owned the character and capitalized on the success. So before Halloween, let’s celebrate Elvira!


Have you experienced Elvira? Which of her projects were your favorites? First person that emails me with the subject line, “Unpleasant Dreams” will get a special mention on the show.  Let us know. Come talk to us in the Discord channel or send us an email to EnjoyStuff@RetroZap.com
