Maila Nurmi

Born: 1922-12-11 - Died: 2008-01-10
Cause of Death:
Natural Causes

Death Summary: Murmi was 85 years old when she passed away from unspecified natural causes in her home in Hollywood, California.

Who was Maila Nurmi : Maila Nurmi is best known as Vampira, the TV horror movie host from the 1950s.

She has been imitated over the years, most notably by "Elvira - Mistress of the Dark", and perhaps even the Cryptkeeper from Tales from the Crypt, because Vampira was known for her "witty" graveyard humor and puns.

Aside from her hosting, she went on to appear in a number of Ed Wood films, such as Plan 9 from Outer Space alongside Bela Lugosi, who died while in the middle of production. She was portrayed by Lisa Marie (not Elvis's daughter) in Tim Burton's biopic Ed Wood.
