The Los Angeles guide to Halloween, the supernatural, and other creepy happenings.

Fall 2008

Elvira is once again storming through the Halloween season in Los Angeles. Cassandra Peterson, her brilliant and gorgeous creator, allowed me a little time with the Mistress of the Dark...

Aside from your own movies, “Elvira, Mistress of the Dark” and “Elvira’s Haunted Hills,” what are your horror favorites?

This and over two dozen vintage Victorian homes inhabit Angeleno Heights, also known as L.A.’s Haunted House District. To find this neighborhood and other supernatural spots in Los Angeles, check out our map on page 2.

Well, for me, Vincent Price flicks were huge! Roger Corman’s releases were pretty damn cool too. Obviously they had a big influence on me. And I’m glad you’re a fan of my double features. I was in Vegas recently and I loved the Elvira slot machine! Especially when your voice says, “Pull it harder!” I’m so happy you came across my slot machine– loosest slots in town! Where else can you plug Elvira for just a nickel? Have you ever gone overseas to entertain the troops?

In 1969, as Los Angeles was being horrified by the acts of the Manson family, another occult drama was unfolding in the highest reaches of government. County Supervisor Ernest Debs had offended a witch who, the year before, had cast a spell to increase “sexual vitality of the County of Los Angeles.” She was now threatening to “de-spell” the County, leaving L.A. in a less fertile state. The witch was Louise Huebner, who had risen to local prominence organizing festivities celebrating the city’s birthday and doing astrology segments for local radio and television. To help promote a the 1968 Hollywood Bowl summer concert season, Mrs. Huebner was hired to cast the fertility spell on stage. To make her legitimate, one week prior Ernest Debs had presented to her a signed certificate, complete

with County seal, certifying Louise Huebner as the “Official Witch of Los Angeles”. On July 21, 1968, with the help of 11,000 members of the Bowl audience, L.A.’s witch cast her first “official” spell. After the ceremony, Mrs. Huebner used her new title of Official Witch of Los Angeles to promote appearances, on her book jackets, and even on her own record album, “Seduction Through Witchcraft”. Meanwhile, Ernest Debs, who had given the her the title, was cursing himself for doing so. Less than a year later, his office attempted to dismiss the title, referring to it as merely a gag to promote the Hollywood Bowl, and that Louise Huebner was not only not a witch, but she didn’t believe in witchcraft. Finally, in December, 1969, a lawyer for the County sent Mrs. Huebner a letter insisting she had no authority to use the title, and demanding

she “discontinue its use”. “I guess (the letter) was meant to shake me up” Mrs. Huebner recalled. “Being a Witch ~ I don’t shake up easily.” Instead, she used a few spells learned from her background in P.R.: sending a reply to the County of Los Angeles explaining that she was offended by the demand, and issued a press release threatening to “de-spell” the County if her title was revoked: “What with smog and freeways being what they are, I shudder to think of what the De-Spelling could do to devastate the County.” The story hit national wires, and perhaps as a result, the County never pursued the injunction. To this day, Louise Huebner remains the first, and only, Official Witch of Los Angeles.

Honey, I entertain troops where ever and whenever possible. However, it’s usually
