Additionally, Kane Hodder from the "Friday the 13th" franchise and Academy Award � winning make-up special affects artist Rick Baker serve as judges as well.

The Fox Reality Channel original, "The Search for the Next Elvira" has been expanded into four, hour-long episodes during which contestants will compete to see if they can look the part, and present the same wit, poise and courage as the real Elvira in hopes of portraying one of Halloween's most recognizable icons. Following the double episode airing on Saturday, October 20, audience members can go to www.foxreality.com to vote for their favorite aspiring Elvira who will be crowned as the next "Mistress of the Dark" during the finale episode on Halloween.
