Children of the '80s will likely remember buxom TV horror host, Elvira. A little bit Mae West and a little bit 50's cult legend Vampira (she was actually sued by Vampira over the similarity between their looks), Elvira was one of the most popular horror TV hosts of the time and eventually made her own way to the big screen in the cult favorite, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
As first reported by our friends at Destroy the Brain, the film is on its way to Blu-ray for the first time through a brand new distributor called Cinespectral Films in a trio of limited edition mediabooks. The releases look gorgeous and are stacked with bonus materials. The film is slated to release on April 24, check out the galleries below for larger images and more details

CINESPECTRAL FILMS proudly presents the 1988 cult comedy: Elvira, Mistress of the Dark for the first time ever on Blu-ray, in glorious all-new restored High Definition. Limited to just 3,000 copies, this strictly limited Dual-Format 3-disc collector’s edition is packed with all-new special features and never-before-seen archive material.
When famed TV horror hostess Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) quits her job after being sexually harassed by the station’s new owner, she forms a plan to start her own show in the heart of Las Vegas. Upon learning that her great aunt Morgana has passed away, Elvira travels to the town of Falwell to claim her inheritance, only to soon find herself stranded in town when her Macabre Mobile’s engine blows up. Once the stuffy locals get an eyeful of the scream queen’s ample assets, all hell busts loose! Will she become Las Vegas’ next big dance sensation or will she get burned alive at the stake?
