Wax Museum at Fisherman's Wharf- Elvira Mistress of the Dark

Anyone who grew up in the eighties in Los Angeles remembers watching Elvira host Elvira's Movie Macabre. She would introduce the movies, and give corny commentary before and after the commercials. She made the super bad movies bearable. Although, that's where I first saw one of my favorite movies, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Here we see her welcome people to the San Francisco Wax Museum's Chamber of Horrors. This was probably the same figure (or copy thereof) of the figure that once called Movieland Wax Museum home.

Basically the same shot with flash. One loses the creepy atmosphere with the lights on.

A close up of Elvira. Anyone who thinks that the San Francisco Wax Museum's Chamber of Horrors will be corny has another thing coming, as the place is rather gruesome.

From another angle we see the skeletons on either side of her.

A last shot of the Mistress of the Dark.
