Normally I don’t pay much attention to the Twitter-verse, but thanks to a buddy who sent me a sneak peek of what VANS has in store for October via their Twitter account, I’m just glad I still have an active account.
Today, the radical retro skate company going strong in 2021, announced the VANS X HORROR COLLECTION debuting sometime in October- with an official launch date TBA. Four pairs of kicks dedicated to four classic horror films are included in the line-up and honestly, whatever pair you snag-you’re a winner pal.
A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Shining, Stephen King’s IT, and Friday the 13th all have a special place for your feet coming soon!
Stay tuned to VANS for the exact drop date as I’m sure they will sell out fairly quickly.
The only thing I think could be better than another Casket Match from the phenom in 2021! Netflix and the WWE have partnered up to bring one really cool Halloween special featuring The Undertaker to the streaming service giant on October 5th, 2021- Escape the Undertaker!
That’s right folks, The Undertaker (Mark Calaway), gets his own and FIRST featured film for the Halloween season- as far cry from playing second fiddle to the Hulkster as a toddler- talking bounty hunter from Outer Space, (heh, Suburban Commando). And it’s fan-friendly as an interactive experience where Escape the Undertaker will give viewers the power to decide the actions of the Undertaker’s new victims, as they try to escape the wrath of the WWE legend.
“In this interactive film featuring WWE Superstars, The Undertaker has set a trap for the decorated tag team The New Day at his mansion. What they don’t know: The Undertaker’s mansion is an extreme Haunted House, packed to the brim with supernatural challenges. It’s up to viewers to decide the fate of these three poor souls trying to survive the wrath of The Undertaker.”
Horror fans’ favorite streaming service Shudder announced that in celebrating 40 years of the Mistress of the Dark, Movie Macabre is back with Elvira’s 40th Anniversary, Very Scary, Very Special Special to air on September 25th, 2021 at 8 PM.
In a statement from the Queen herself: “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.”
The slinky horror hostess will host a slew of classic horror films, starting off with her very own 1988 flick, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark! After that, we have William Castle’s House On Haunted Hill (1959) with The City Of The Dead to follow. And to top off the cherry on this horror sundae, Messiah Of Evil sees the end of the marathon special.
Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson is known throughout the world as the ultimate Queen of Halloween. No words have ever been more true and the forever young beauty holds the title strong 40 years after the first appearance of the Elvira persona. Cassandra and her best friend, Robert Redding, came up with the sexy punk/vampire look back in the early 80’s after winning the role to bring back the show Fright Night, a local Los Angeles based television horror show that presented low-budget horror and science fiction films. Fright Night became Movie Macabre with the sexy new host and the rest is history. Elvira is one of the most recognizable horror icons today and has etched her place in horror history as a cult favorite and legend in her own right- and a damn sweetheart to boot.
I’ll never forget the day I met the legendary hostess and I can say without flinching, she is the most down to Earth, loveable woman I’ve ever come across who truly enjoys what she does and her fans. I’ve met quite a few celebrities’ through interviews and cons throughout my horror blogging run, and she maintains my favorite after all these years.
Even though she refused to share her forever young beauty secrets with me.
