Happy Birthday Vampira! (Maila Nurmi, December 11, 1922 – January 10, 2008)


Although she made her transition into the other world almost 10 years ago, she is not forgotten. Today we remember that irresistible and small-waisted horror movie host, Vampira who was born on this day way back in the black & white era, in the year 1922. 


It's funny how Ed Wood's film "Plan 9 from Outer Space" really immortalized Vampira. It makes me wonder how sought after she'd be without that film; so many horror hosts go on without being noticed. In any case, I'm glad she was able to leave an impact on b-movie culture. May she always be at peace.
