She is the first as well as Queen of the Horror Hosts. It was model/actress Maila Nurmi who brought her to vivid life. She started her show gliding down a hallway with fog, facing the camera and letting out a piercing scream that would raise the dead. She consorted with her pet spider Rollo and drank bubbling cocktails, all while reclining on a skull encrusted couch and mocking the films she was showing. She was the original, the innovator...she is Vampira! And tonight her niece Sandra Niemi will join The Bone Jangler and Halloween Jack as we talk about the life an times of Maila Nurmi.
