Welcome to the Vampira Show! Actually, it's just us discussing the amazing cult secret that was The Vampira Show in all its 1950s L.A. glory. Karamia tells Emily how Vampira, with her corseted waist, bat-sleeves, iconic eyebrows, and blood-curdling scream, shook up the vanilla world of 1950s television and became an inspiration for the genre of horror-hosts to come! Be ready to hear some stories about James Dean, a tidbit about Orson Welles, and a lot about Elvira. Make yourself a Vampira Cocktail from your Poison Bar, sit back, and listen to tales about one woman's fight to preserve her creativity in this extra sexy, extra spooky minisode!
