Halloween Awkward Family Photos

The Unicorn & The Centaur: And they said it wouldn’t last.
Baggy: “Mom decided to save money on costumes that ‘you only wear once.’ She tied trash bags on my brother, and I and stuffed them with newspaper, smeared brown eye shadow on our faces, and pasted big signs on our chests that said TRASH.”
Mask: If only it were Halloween every day.
Jelly Belly: “When I was little, my mom decided to dress me up as a bag of jelly beans. Looking for cheap costume ideas? This one consisted of a transparent trash bag from under the kitchen sink and some balloons.”

Horror Cinema Trivia: Elvira—Mistress of the Dark

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark was produced by NBC, which set up a distribution deal with New World Pictures. Just as the film was slated to hit theaters, New World filed for bankruptcy. The marketing campaign was abruptly halted and the release was scaled back from thousands of theaters to just a few hundred. Critics were brutal and, without promotion to entice potential viewers, the film bombed at the box office, though it later became a best-seller on video and one of the highest-rated programs of the year when NBC aired it in 1990.

As today is National Coming Out Day, I thought it would be appropriate to feature Elvira.

A kid of the 80s, I adored Elvira and this movie. Learn more behind-the-scenes facts at IMDb Trivia: Elvira—Mistress of the Dark (1988).
