Cinespectral Films to release Limited Edition ELVIRA: MISTRESS OF THE DARK Blu-ray in early 2017!


UPDATE: The mediabooks for ELVIRA failed a quality check and caused a major delay. Ditto for this company's upcoming limited release of HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN. Because of that, the final release date for ELVIRA is JULY 28TH! If you did pre-order this disc (or Cinespectral's HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN set) and want a refund, contact the company via e-mail or Facebook to secure a speedy refund. Me? I'm sticking to my guns and hoping I receive both releases in time for my 34th birthday!

For those of you pining for a deluxe collectible edition of this 1988 classic, hold on to your butts! Initially slated for release last year on December 1st, Cinespectral's Limited (to 3,000) ELVIRA 3-Disc Blu-ray is something fans will simply die for!

Note that there will be three different cover arts available, each limited to 1,000 apiece. An official release date is close to being announced, so check back soon for an update! In the meantime, scroll down and get excited Elvira fans!

Synopsis: Horror host Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) heads to the New England town of Falwell, Massachusetts to claim an inheritance from her recently deceased Aunt. Along with a spooky old house and a shape-shifting punk rock poodle, Elvira also inherits a magical cookbook that her diabolical Uncle (William Morgan Sheppard) wants for his own devices.

Will the Mistress of the Dark win over the locals and thwart her Uncle's plans, or will she push her luck too far and end up on the wrong end of a witch burning? See for yourself when you watch Elvira bust out in her outrageously funny feature film debut!

This release has been pushed back numerous times because the distributors are promising to give fans the definitive release of this 80s cult classic! The current official release date is now June 19, 2017, and only PayPal payments are being accepted for this release. Also, the cost of this 3-disc set is $41.19 U.S. dollars! (International shipping costs included!) To keep up on what's happening with this "must have" release, and the next pre-order announcement, keep an eye on Cinespectral's official Facebook Page!
