Miko Macabre Cryptique

Some horror hosts are not born of the television set, they emerge from the internet. One of these is Miko Macabre who hosts Cryptique. The show features an extremely shortened version of a horror movie with Miko breaking in to offer her comments and comedy skits. Although very low budget, it has just the right blend of corniness and self-awareness.
Miko is a host with definite echoes of Elvira in her humor and realization of how ridiculous the plots of these movies can be. This is offset with her vast knowledge of horror movies and an intelligence in the jokes, many of which are double entendres. The summaries that she gives during the movies are accurate in pointing out the obvious weaknesses in the films.

All of this makes a very funny show which pulls from many different influences and makes it fun on repeat viewings. Although she doesn't have many episodes made, she is currently working on new ones. All of the episodes so far can be seen on her YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/MikoMacabre

Here is part 1 of episode 2 featuring the movie Burial Ground:
