Elvira Star Says Netflix And Shudder Rejected Her Revival Ideas: ‘So Now What?’

Really? It’s not clear exactly what Shudder was turning down — a new series, a new movie, just airing her classic Elvira‘s Movie Macabre episodes, or maybe all of it. Without knowing the full context, it’s hard to know what led to a rejection. Too expensive? Are there any rights issues? It’s hard to imagine they just didn’t think the content would be a good fit.Gina Carbone, Cinema Blend » https://www.cinemablend.com/television/2478779/elvira-star-says-netflix-and-shudder-rejected-her-revival-ideas-so-now-what [photo: New World Pictures/IMDb]

The classic horror/suspense anthology series Boris Karloff’s The Veil is available as it’s own stand alone free Roku Channel. […] The series was hosted by Boris Karloff, who also acted in every episode but one, and was allegedly based upon real-life reports of supernatural happenings. […] Hailed by critics as “the greatest television series never seen” (according to DVD release publicity) The Veil was never broadcast. Troubles within the studio (and the collapse of a preliminary co-production arrangement with National Telefilm Associates) resulted in production being cancelled after only 10 episodes. – William B.

Currently, Shudder is still in Beta mode, but I’m going to try and answer the most pressing streaming service question: Is Shudder worth the $4.99 a month cost? – Kayla Cobb, Decider
