As of 10:00PM last night, principal photography of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's next film, "House of Ghosts" is COMPLETE!

The final scene filmed takes place just over halfway through the film and involved actors Mike Cook, Mihmiverse-newcomer Mark Scanlan, and monster-of-all-trades Michael Kaiser. The last shot was celebrated with many smiles, a few tears, two bottles of non-alcoholic wine and a batch of Stephanie Mihm's Christmas cookies.

Principal photography on "House of Ghosts" officially began on August 28th and took twenty-four separate days spread out over four months. Since most of the shoots were many days apart, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm already has almost forty-five minutes of the film edited together! Barring any major setbacks, the film WILL premiere in May of 2012. The tentative date is Wednesday, May 23rd but, no contracts have been signed. Once they have, we'll start selling advance tickets!

In the meantime, until authoring of the DVD is complete, you can still become an associate producer and get your name listed in the end credits! Just because principal photography is complete, doesn't mean the production doesn't need money—there are posters to be made, things to be mailed, collector's tickets to be printed, DVDs to be pressed... you name it! So, please, consider becoming an associate producer now and join the amazing group of people who have already done so. To find out how, visit the merchandise page!

You've heard that the newest episode of the Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast has been posted, yes?

It's a brisk evening in Minnesota and Rhuby 'n' Hater are toughing it out by the backyard bonfire for the seventh installment of the Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast.

We apologize for the unusually long break between updates but we PROMISE you'll like what we have for you today!

A fun and funny article about the filming of "House of Ghosts" appeared in today's issue of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The article is a unique and intimate behind-the-scenes "snapshot" taken during the filming of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's next film. It's very entertaining and well worth the read!

The full text of the article can be accessed from the press page BUT, beware that it reveals a pretty big plot point. If you're trying to avoid all spoilers, you might want to wait!

Also, a short exclusive video interview with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm is attached to the article. BUT, to access the video, you'll have to go to the Pioneer Press website by clicking HERE!

Lastly, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm recently spoke at the University of Wisconsin River Falls campus and screened his most recent film, "Attack of the Moon Zombies. While he was there, he was interviewed for the student-produced "Focus on U" program that appears on the campus television station. The edited interview is now available for public consumption through the university's website. Though Mr. Mihm's voice appears a bit strained, the short interview is funny and informative. ALSO, pay close attention as he makes a pretty major Mihmiverse-related mistake while speaking! See if you can find it!

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Did you miss out on last weekend's super-lambent ValleyCon, the Fargo Entertainment Expo at which writer/director Christopher R. Mihm was the film guest of honor and where he was joined by a gaggle of Mihmiversers like Mark Haider, Cherie "Rhuby" Gallinati, Sid Korpi, Michael Kaiser, Anthony Kaczor, Shannon McDonough, and Rylan Bachman? Do you feel left out of all the fun?

Well, don't be so hard on yourself! Through the magic of TECHNOLOGY, we're now able to bring you a piece of that great experience with the first ever supplemental podcast—the audio of which was recorded during Mr. Mihm's panel discussion about the films of the Mihmiverse and low-budget filmmaking in general. If you're interested in either (or both), we highly recommend checking it out as it is quite entertaining!

We just received a batch of photos from last weekend's ValleyCon, where writer/director Christopher R. Mihm was the film guest of honor. As can be seen from the photos, a gaggle of Mihmiverse "behind-the-sceners" joined him for what was described to us as "one of the most fun conventions and a really lambent time!" Also, Mr. Mihm asked that we reiterate how thankful he was to the convention's organizers for having him and, as of right now, he plans on returning next year!

Photos, from left to right, top to bottom: Writer/director Christopher R. Mihm clowns around while Shannon McDonough (Dr. Hackett), Mark Haider (Dr. Haterov), and executive producers Cherie "Rhuby" Gallinati and Rylan Bachman patiently humor him, Mr. Mihm shows off his "Roger and Julie Corman Intrepid Filmmaker" award, Mark Haider (Dr. Haterov), writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, and "monster-of-all-trades" Michael Kaiser show off their "lambent" con badges, Anthony Kaczor (Dr. Phillips), a moon zombie (Michael Kaiser) and Sid Korpi (Administrator Ripley) smile for the camera. (Do moon zombies smile?)


Friday, October 21, 2011

On the eve of a weekend's worth of very cool Mihmiverse-related screenings and events, we've received word that "Attack of the Moon Zombies" has won ANOTHER award—this time pulling in the Roger and Julie Corman Award from the Fargo Fantastic Film Festival! Congrats to writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and the entire cast and crew for winning a truly appropriate award for Mr. Mihm's style of filmmaking.

Just posted an exclusive, zombie-themed interview with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and ANOTHER positive review of "Attack of the Moon Zombies" from a different zombie-themed website, BuyZombie.com!

The interview was originally posted on ZombiesDrule.com, the zombie-centric website responsible for yesterday's review of "Attack of the Moon Zombies." The interview delves into the making of the film and touches on some fun, zombie-related topics like which weapon Mr. Mihm would prefer to have at his disposal to fight off a zombie hoarde! It's definitely unique and worth your time.

As for the new review of the film, reviewer Paul Skow of BuyZombie.com, found much to like in "Attack of the Moon Zombies," saying, "I was surprised at how much I laughed and was entertained by the film" and "[the film] was so charming and so successful at its goal that the viewer can't help but admire it."

To read the review and the interview, check out the press page!

The Moon Zombies have invaded public radio!

Once a week, Minnesota Public Radio does a short piece called "Art Hounds," which celebrates and highlights local artists and arts events—with one caveat: the events and/or artists MUST BE suggested by someone OTHER than the artist! Thanks to Minnesota-based drummer (and presumed Mihmivite) Kerry Johnson, "Attack of the Moon Zombies" and the upcoming "Moon Zombies Revisited" event were plugged on the air! AND, thanks to Mr. Johnson's great recommendation, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has been contacted by the local television media about covering the upcoming event!

Listen to the "Art Hounds" segment online by clicking HERE!

Speaking of next week's "Moon Zombies Revisited" event, with only days until the Moon Zombies return to the Twin Cities, have you bought your advance tickets!?

Now that the summer is upon us, it's hard to find the time and energy to want to be inside surfing the internet. However, we know it is our solemn duty to report the latest in Mihmiverse news to you, the discerning fan. As such, we want to apologize for COMPLETELY forgetting to bring the following news to you in a timely manner...

On June 16th, Justen Overlander (Sheriff Elliott) posted a very entertaining video interview with "the man behind the monsters" Michael Kaiser on his Examiner.com page! Believe us, it is very much worth checking out—if for no other reason than to see Justen completely forget appearing in "Terror from Beneath the Earth" with Mr. Kaiser!

Even MORE positive reviews of "Attack of the Moon Zombies" appeared online over the weekend, both coming from zombie-themed websites!

Of the two reviews, the one from Darryl L. Pierce in episode 106 of the A Little Dead Podcast (found on alittledead.com) was positively glowing! It also contains what has to be one of the most flattering quotes about writer/director Christopher R. Mihm (and "Attack of the Moon Zombies") to date:
In the world of independent films, Christopher Mihm is really up there with the best of them. His film really hit all the right notes, from a great story to a great cast, perfectly done sets, and a very obvious love of what he's doing.
How amazing is that!? To check out either review, stop on by the press page!

Friday, June 17, 2011

The newest episode of the Mihmiverse podcast is here!

This month's entry features an interview with "Mihmiverse monster of all trades" Michael Kaiser, "Attack of the Moon Zombies" premiere memories with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, another "bad poem," a new mock commercial, and hosts Rhuby n' Hater yucking it up in their signature style!

More positive press for "Attack of the Moon Zombies!"

Time Community Theater in Oshkosh, Wisconsin
We just posted the full text of a very positive review of the newest Mihmiverse film that appeared on Will "The Thrill" Vaharo's Examiner.com page! Mr. Vaharo is a pulp fiction author and B-movie impresario who really knows what he's talking about! The review also includes an exclusive interview with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and executive producer Rylan Bachman wherein they discuss "Attack of the Moon Zombies," the reasons for the inclusion of Esperanto in the film, AND some further hints about the next Mihmiverse movie!

Check out this great quote from the article:
Christopher R. Mihm's hilarious B-movie homage "Attack of the Moon Zombies," which takes place entirely on an isolated moon base suddenly facing a space spore-induced invasion of mutated monster-men, is a loony lunar laugh-fest that manages to lovingly lampoon vintage schlock while also maintaining an innate respect for this beloved genre.
To read this and other articles about and reviews of all of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's films, check out the press page!

Also, we want to take this opportunity to thank Bob Arndt (who was last seen as Dr. Banks in "Attack of the Moon Zombies") for setting up last Saturday's great Mihmiverse double-feature at the Time Community Theater (pictured) in Oshkosh, Wisconsin! The crowd wasn't huge but what it lacked in size, it made up for it with copious amounts of enthusiasm! They even invited writer/director Christopher R. Mihm to come back for more screenings! We can't wait!

Friday, June 10, 2011

"Attack of the Moon Zombies" continues its march forward!

In addition to a new pair of positive reviews (check out the press page to read them), we've just received notice that the film will be screened in two very distinct and cool locations: Las Vegas, Nevada and São Paulo, Brazil at the Sci-Fi Center (in English) and the International Esperanto Film Festival (in Esperanto), respectively! As of right now, we don't have EXACT details for either event but, as soon as we do, we'll post it on the events page!

Speaking of screenings, DO NOT FORGET! Come out to the Time Community Theater in Oshkosh, Wisconsin TOMORROW for the Dr. Ivan Cryptosis hosted "Attack of the Moon Zombies" / "Terror from Beneath the Earth" double feature! A whole slew o' cast members from both films will be there to help the official Mihmiverse horror host celebrate this fun event! Doors open at 6:30pm and admission is only $5!

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Two more reviews (both good!) and a new collectible have arrived, we get a little (very little) information about the NEXT Mihmiverse film, and we've added a cool new screening of "Cave Women on Mars!" to the calendar!

First, we've just added a very cool and rare collectible to the merchandise page: the "Phantom Lake Monsters" baseball cap (pictured at right)! This high-quality, one-size-fits-all (velcro adjustable) twill hat comes in navy and includes the team's "Ph.L." logo embroidered on the front! This is the official hat of the fictional Mihmiverse major league baseball team the "Phantom Lake Monsters" AND is a replica of the hat worn by "rocket jock" Captain Frehley in "Attack of the Moon Zombies!"

The hat retails for only $14.99 (plus $2.50 shipping and handling) and is available in EXTREMELY limited quantities! If you're a Mihmiverse completist, act NOW, because they WILL NOT LAST!

Also, we just posted two new reviews of "Attack of the Moon Zombies" to the press page... and they're both VERY positive!

The first was posted by "Attack of the Moon Zombies" premiere attendee (and host of the blog talk radio show Dog Works Radio Show) Robert Forto. Posted on his blog, the review covers both the film and the premiere event. All things considered, Dr. Forto REALLY enjoyed it!

The second review was written by Jason Coffman for FilmMonthly.com. The author appears to have thoroughly enjoyed the film (and really GOT IT, too) and states as much in his great review. Though the review contains a small factual error (see if you can spot it), it's the fourth overwhelmingly positive review since the film's release! "Attack of the Moon Zombies" is on a roll!

Both reviews are worth your time, so make sure to visit the press page and check them out!

On June 25th, "Cave Women on Mars" will screen along with B-movie classic "Wild Women of Wongo" at the Peoria Theater as part of their ongoing Drunken Zombie Deadly Double-Feature series! For more information about the event, visit the Drunken Zombie homepage at www.drunkenzombie.com!

For more Mihmiverse screenings and events, visit the events page!

Lastly (and maybe most importantly), we've gotten word from writer/director Christopher R. Mihm that he has begun work scripting the next Mihmiverse film! So far, we don't know much about it but, when we know, so will you! If nothing else, if previous years are any indication, this means we SHOULD BE able to look forward to a new Mihm film next Spring! Is it too early to start getting excited?

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

We just posted the June issue of the Phantom Lake Almanac, the official newsletter of the films of Christopher R. Mihm! In this issue we recap the incredible "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world and drive-in premieres (with pictures!), talk about all the fun events coming up, and review another classic movie of the month (1959's "First Man into Space"). Don't miss it!

The reviews are in!

While writer/director Christopher R. Mihm spent the weekend attending drive-in screenings of "Attack of the Moon Zombies" at the Hi-way 18 Outdoor Theatre (see photo at right), a pair of VERY positive reviews of the new film were released!

The first appeared on the "Exonauts!" blog. The author (who goes simply by "Jay"), called the newest Mihmiverse film "a love-letter to cinematic cheddar played to the hilt" and generally gushed over both the film and his experience attending the premiere.

The full review can be read here. Also, the author has just posted a profile for both the moon zombie plant and creature to be used with the "X-plorers" roleplaying game! (How cool is that!?) The profile can be found HERE!

The second review was written by the Minneapolis Movie Examiner, Darrell Moen. Mr. Moen also attended the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world premiere and his very positive review is as much about the film as it is the premiere itself.

Both articles are highly recommended reading! Check them out by visiting the press page!

"Attack of the Moon Zombies" returns!

After the smashing success of the sold-out "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world premiere, demand is high for more public screenings of the film. Luckily, we've arranged for a very special "dinner-and-a-movie" event at the New Hope Cinema Grill.

Located in a suburb of Minneapolis, the New Hope Cinema Grill is a full service restaurant with three showrooms that offers a variety of entertainment including movies, live standup comedy, sporting events, and now -- the films of Christopher R. Mihm! The New Hope Cinema Grill is also one of the select establishments serving Surly beer on tap!

This screening of the newest (and best) Mihmiverse film is in the perfect setting for the whole family. For only $15 a ticket, you'll be treated to a screening of "Attack of the Moon Zombies" and a kid-friendly pizza/salad/pop buffet. PLUS, alcoholic beverages will be sold on site to make the evening that much more enjoyable. And, as if that weren't enough, we're in the process of planning some extra fun, games, giveaways, and an appearance by the film's title monsters!

Family-friendly Mihmiverse B-movie fun, dinner, monsters, fun and games, and beer! What more could one ask for in an affordable evening's entertainment!?

Buy advance tickets now by visiting the events section of the merchandise page! Don't forget, the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" premiere sold out a 400 seat theater very quickly and this one only seats 150! So, DO NOT HESITATE! Order your tickets TODAY or risk missing out AGAIN!

In other news, "Attack of the Moon Zombies" holds its drive-in premiere this weekend at the Hi-way 18 Outdoor Theatre in Jefferson, Wisconsin! The film will screen Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as the third film of a triple-feature after such big-budget Hollywood fare as "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "Tron: Legacy!"

Visit the drive-in's website at www.highway18.com for location and admission info!

Lastly, Justen Overlander (Sheriff Elliott/Jonathan) just released more of his video interview with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm. In this installment, the Mihmiverse-namesake discusses his thoughts on success!



Thursday, May 26, 2011

WOW!

Last night's sold-out "Attack of the Moon Zombies" premiere was AMAZING! The Heights Theatre was completely packed with raucous fans who "ooh-ed," "ahh-ed," giggled, and shrieked in all the right places and made the night one the MOST incredible Mihmiverse premieres to date! In fact, we here at SaintEuphoria.com, the online home of the films of Christopher R. Mihm, are going to go out on a limb and say that last night's event was the BEST Mihmiverse premiere EVER!

And, having finally seen "Attack of the Moon Zombies" surrounded by almost 400 Mihmiverse fanatics, we can easily admit that this is, in fact, the BEST film writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has ever produced. Everything about it from the story to the sets, the acting, the direction, the special effects, and ESPECIALLY the unbelievably cool monsters from the mind of Mitch Gonzales, was pitch perfect. Let us also say, if you missed out on last night's event, you missed out on what might have been the best night in Mihmiverse history. Check out the photos below for proof!

Photos, from left to right, top to bottom: a line forms outside the theater, organist extraordinaire Harvey Gustafson entertains the room prior to showtime, moon zombie cake, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and star Stephanie Mihm (Dr. Rutherford) hang out by the snack bar before the movie starts, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and monster-of-all-trades Michael Kaiser sell merchandise and sign autographs, most of the cast of the new film!


Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Tomorrow is the big day!

Were you lucky enough to get tickets to the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" premiere? We hope you were, because it is TOMORROW! We here at SaintEuphoria.com, the online home of the films of Christopher R. Mihm, are beyond excited to the point of incoherence. The ability to think straight completely and utterly escapes us at this point. A full year of waiting is finally coming to an end and we are ECSTATIC! Is it tomorrow yet?

In the meantime, Justen Overlander (Sheriff Elliott/Jonathan) just released another installment of his Examiner.com interview with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm. To whet your appetite for tomorrow, we've posted it below. BUT, be warned -- THE INTERVIEW CONTAINS "ATTACK OF THE MOON ZOMBIES" SPOILERS! If you want to see the full film before having ANYTHING ruined, we suggest you WAIT to view this video. OR, turn off your monitor and only listen to the sound!

Don't say we didn't warn you!


Also of importance to mention: we will soon be "retiring" some of the Mihmiverse plushies to make room for new ones! If you haven't purchased these fine collectibles yet, now is the time because they WILL NOT last forever!

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Less than a week to go before the big "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world premiere and we've just added a very unique screening of the film to the schedule! On June 19th, the film will be screened in ESPERANTO at the Annual National Congress, Esperanto-USA in Emeryville, California! The event is open to the public and is definitely going to be one of the coolest ways to see the newest Mihmiverse film! Check out the events page for more information!

Monday, May 16, 2011

Mihm, the episode features Sid Korpi, the actress who will soon be known across the Mihmiverse as Administrator Ripley in the soon-to-be-released "Attack of the Moon Zombies!"

Did you get your tickets to the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world premiere? We hope you did because as of 10:49PM on this date, the event is now SOLD OUT!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

And with that, the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world premiere is completely SOLD OUT... but wait, we've received word that a few out-of-state associate producers are not able to make it. AND they are allowing us to resell their seats -- which is to say, we now have an additional eight seats available for the big event! BUT ONLY EIGHT! So, if, for some unknown reason, you were waiting until the last possible moment to purchase tickets to the event, this is it. This is LITERALLY the LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT. Buy your tickets NOW because we can flat out guarantee you, they will not last another twenty-four hours. And once they're gone, THAT'S IT. You won't be able to go unless you find someone willing to sell you their seats!

In other wonderful news, replication of the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" DVD is complete and has been sent out to be shipped. It is slated to arrive TOMORROW and thus, will most definitely be available at the premiere. Can you feel the excitement yet?

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

With only three weeks before the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" premiere, we've just posted a pair of articles about the film.

The first article originally appeared in The American Esperantist and it tells the story of how the Esperanto translation team tackled their work on the newest Mihmiverse film. Translated from the original Esperanto, it's unique, illuminating, and the final paragraph contains what has to be the MOST insightful and philosophical deconstruction of why we the fans love the Mihmiverse!

The second article is an interview with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm taken from the May issue of Twin Cities METRO Magazine. Though there is one glaring error (see if you can find it), the article is short and still very much worth reading.

Check out both articles by visiting the press page!

It is also important to note that since we posted the May issue of the Phantom Lake Almanac, we've had a deluge of advance ticket orders for the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world premiere. Because of this, we are now down to the LESS THAN 40 TICKETS! If you have any designs on attending this magnificent event but do not yet have tickets, you should buy them NOW -- because once the event is sold out, THAT'S IT! You won't be able to buy tickets at the door and you WILL NOT be able to attend outside of convincing someone who DOES have tickets to sell you theirs!

Seriously, DO NOT HESITATE! The remaining tickets WILL NOT LAST! Visit the events section of the merchandise page to order your tickets RIGHT THIS INSTANT!

Monday, May 2, 2011

Big update today!

First, it is very important to note that the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" premiere is now more than 80% SOLD OUT. If you are planning on going, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you purchase advance tickets RIGHT NOW, or you may risk not getting in. Advance tickets are only $5.00 and will guarantee you entry to what will surely be THE event of the year!

Also, and this is VERY IMPORTANT, because we are selling standard-price ($5.00) advance tickets, if the premiere sells out prior to the date of the event (May 25th), tickets WILL NOT be available at the door. For clarity and emphasis, let us repeat that: if the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world premiere event sells out through online ticket sales, there will be NO (zero, nada, NONE) day-of tickets available at the door and ONLY advance ticket holders will be able to attend.

To purchase advance tickets, please visit the events section of the merchandise page AS SOON AS IS HUMANLY POSSIBLE!

"Attack of the Moon Zombies" posters are now in stock and available for immediate purchase! Designed by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, we're positive these 11" x 17" posters would look great on your wall -- right next to the other Mihmiverse posters! Of which, after a long "hiatus" and many requests from fans, posters for the first two Mihmiverse films, "The Monster of Phantom Lake" and "It Came From Another World!," are back in stock. Now's your chance to complete your Mihmiverse poster collection by visiting the posters section of the merchandise page and ordering yours today!

In other news, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm appeared on Dog Works Radio. In a full hour-long segment, hosts Robert and Michele Forto grilled Mr. Mihm about all things Mihmiverse, from the humble beginnings of the Canoe Cops to some tantalizing hints about future Mihm films. We've posted the audio of the entire interview in the miscellaneous section of the press page. It's very entertaining and definitely worth checking out!

Finally, we've just posted the May issue of the Phantom Lake Almanac, the official newsletter of the films of Christopher R. Mihm.

In this month's "Attack of the Moon Zombies"-themed issue, we learn about all the places (and ways) one can see the new Mihmiverse film, get another "Behind the Sliding Door" video that includes an interview with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, and another classic movie of the month: 1957's "Zombies of Mora Tau." Also, we're treated to an interview with associate producer Robert "Bob" Arndt, who not only is one of the faces behind the "Behind the Sliding Door" series of behind-the-scenes "Attack of the Moon Zombies" videos, but also appears in the new film as "Dr. Banks."

If you'd like to be notified when we post our monthly newsletter, sign our guestbook above and make sure the "I want to receive updates..." box is checked!

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

It's been a busy week for writer/director Christopher R. Mihm!

First, Mr. Mihm has informed us that the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" DVD is complete and in the hands of the replication company. Which means, barring any serious setbacks, it will most likely be available at the world premiere! Looking over the DVD's "specs," it appears to include more special features than any other Mihmiverse release to date.

In addition to a high quality transfer of the new film, the DVD will include a separate Esperanto audio track, two different commentaries, a blooper reel, photo gallery, English subtitles, an introduction by Dr. Ivan Cryptosis (the official horror host of the Mihmiverse), numerous "easter eggs," and an exclusive Mihmiverse featurette made by none other than Justen Overlander, who, in addition to having acted in several Mihm films, is also a writer and director in his own right!

If you were around the Lincoln, Nebraska area this past weekend, did you pop in and see writer/director Christopher R. Mihm at the Constellation Nebraska sci-fi/horror/anime convention? Mr. Mihm stated that he was surrounded by wonderful, ridiculously friendly people and had an excellent time being the convention's media guest of honor. This is the first time this particular honor was bestowed upon him and, naturally, he enjoyed every last second of it! After participating in a handful of quite entertaining panel discussions ranging from how to make a movie "on the cheap" to simple rants about modern entertainment, convention-goers were treated to a special fifth anniversary screening of "The Monster of Phantom Lake." As of this date, he plans to return to the convention next year simply to enjoy what turned out to be a remarkably fun time!

Lastly, the Esperanto language version of the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" trailer is now available on the Mihmiverse YouTube channel! We've embedded the video below for you to check out!




Saturday, April 9, 2011

Make a point to stop by your local book/magazine shop and pick up the June issue of SCI-FI Magazine! On the cover, you'll find a photo of Johnny Depp in his iconic Captain Jack Sparrow (from the "Pirates of the Carribean" series of films) outfit and within, you'll find a great little article about writer/director Christopher R. Mihm!

We'd love to post the text of the article BUT, we've been asked by the publisher not to. So, the only way to read this great article (which includes some never-before-seen images from "Attack of the Moon Zombies") is to pick up a copy!

On a side note, since making it possible to buy standard advance tickets yesterday, we've had a deluge of orders. Thus, we cannot stress enough how important it is, if you plan to attend the premeiere, to buy tickets AS SOON AS POSSIBLE -- or run a serious risk of not getting in! Go to the events section of merchandise page to purchase your tickets RIGHT NOW!

Friday, April 8, 2011

Following yesterday's release of the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" trailer, advance ticket sales have noticably accelerated. To keep up with demand, we have been given permission to sell $5 standard tickets alongside the $10 collector's tickets!

IMPORTANT! Because we are now selling both levels of advance tickets, we can no longer guarantee the availability of day-of admission tickets. If the event sells out through advance sales, there will be no tickets available at the door. Let us repeat that: if the event sells out through advance ticket sales, there will be NO tickets available at the door on the day of the event.

Previous premieres have been very well attended and interest in this film is EXTREMELY high. Remember, the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" premiere is open to the public, so the ONLY WAY to ensure admittance to the premiere is to purchase an advance ticket -- or risk being left out of what promises to be the event of the year!

Visit the merchandise page to purchase your advance tickets RIGHT NOW! Don't wait!

Thursday, April 7, 2011

The official trailer for "Attack of the Moon Zombies" is finally here!


Wow! Is it May yet!? Speaking of which, advance tickets to the "Attack of the Moon Zombies" world premiere are selling FAST! Sales are already ahead of last year's "Destination: Outer Space" totals -- and that event nearly sold out! Thus, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you purchase advance tickets as soon as possible to guarantee entrance. Though a small number of tickets will be held for sale at the door, do you really want to take the chance and not get in?

Go to the merchandise page and buy your advance tickets RIGHT NOW!

Saturday, April 2, 2011

We've received a very short note from writer/director Christopher R. Mihm regarding yesterday's update:


April Fools!

My next movie will be made in a "1950s-drive-in-cinema" style and will
involve ghosts, monsters, aliens or some random combination of all three.

Radiation might be to blame.

And it will DEFINITELY be in black-and-white.

Bullet dodged!

ALSO, don't miss the just-posted April Phantom Lake Almanac, the official newsletter of the films of Christopher R. Mihm!

In this month's issue, we finally see some movement on Mihm-i-CON, get another "Bob n' Rob" video that includes interviews with "Attack of the Moon Zombies" stars Douglas Sidney (Dr. Collins) and Shannon McDonough (Dr. Hackett), an interview with associate producer Pat Cunningham and his broomball team (the International Broomball Wizards), and another classic movie of the month (Bert I. Gordon's giant grasshopper extravaganza, "Beginning of the End").

Friday, April 1, 2011

In a truly shocking announcement, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has asked us to reveal the title and synopsis of his next film. Here is a verbatim copy-and-paste from an email sent to us by Mr. Mihm:
A Homemade Funeral
Jacob Woods is a 20-something, recent college graduate whose feelings of bewildered disaffection are putting a damper on his ability to focus on his future. After a chance meeting with a beautiful, blonde tennis player on the verge of going pro, he finds himself unexpectedly in love. Unfortunately, the pressures of finding some sort of career path and turning thirty (someday), weigh so heavily on his mind, he doesn't realize his true feelings for her until it's too late... or is it? In an effort to win his true love (and figure out his life trajectory), Jacob finds himself engrossed in a series of drug-fueled conversations that touch on everything from weather to the pointlessness of talking about the weather, the idiosyncratic emptiness of growing up in a soulless, technology-driven world, and the very nature of existence itself! For the first time, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm plans to shoot a "non-B-movie" set in modern times -- and in color!

"A Homemade Funeral" is slated to go before cameras near the end of next summer. Auditions will be held at the end of May to fill the numerous roles in the film.
Honestly, we aren't even sure what to make of this announcement. If nothing else, it'll be interesting to see what the master of "1950s-drive-in-cinema" does with something so outside his obvious comfort zone. As always, when we know more, we'll let you know!

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

The official poster for "Attack of the Moon Zombies" is here and it is AMAZING!

Attack of the Moon Zombies
What can be said besides, "WOW!?" Designed by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, we're told (and can definitely see it) that this design was chosen as a direct tribute to one of Mr. Mihm's all-time favorite B-movie poster images: that of the 1957 American International Pictures classic film, "I Was A Teenage Frankenstein!"

For those familiar with the original, the similarities are obvious -- but it's the Mihmiverse specifics that are most interesting to us fans!

This is the first time outside of the Super Mihmiverse Marathon held in Eau Claire, Wisconsin last October, that an image of the moon zombie monster costume has been seen publicly. Designed by talented-as-heck monster maker Mitch Gonzales, the costume design is both Mihmiverse-appropriate (the big "googly" eyes are back!) and yet, something altogether new, exciting, and (dare we say) truly frightening! When writer/director Christopher R. Mihm told us the design for his zombies would have something to do with a "space plant" and wouldn't resemble a common "undead-style" zombie, he wasn't kidding! Instead, we're being treated to another memorable monster from the minds behind the Mihmiverse!

On a side note, when compared side by side, there is a definite similarity between this poster and the one for Christopher R. Mihm's previous film, "Terror from Beneath the Earth." The color scheme is similar, as is the general layout. Since "Attack of the Moon Zombies" is a pseudo-sequel to that earlier film and features a much-older Dr. Edwards (again played by the incomparable Mike Cook), these similarities seem wholly appropriate.

Needless to say, we are even MORE excited for the big premiere -- which is less than two months away! Whatever you do, make sure you purchase your advance tickets as soon as possible to make sure you get to see the next Mihm film before anyone else!

Also, we've been given permission by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm to start selling the Jackson Lunar Base mission patches featured in the forthcoming movie, "Attack of the Moon Zombies!" Check out the patches section of the merchandise page to see and learn more about the design -- and to purchase your own while supplies last!

Advance ticket holders will receive an individually numbered collector's ticket (while supplies last) and, as in years past, an exclusive collector's item! This year's collector's item is a framed, signed piece of the Jackson Lunar Base set!

BIG NEWS!

"Attack of the Moon Zombies" is complete! As of last night, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm signed off on the final edit of the film! After watching the finished film multiple times with family and a select group of trusted friends, it has been determined that this film is absolutely the BEST Mihmiverse film ever made! With only two short months to go before the big world premiere, it goes without saying that we here at SaintEuphoria.com, the online home of the films of Christopher R. Mihm, CANNOT WAIT to see the film on the big screen!

As a consequence of the film being finished, the associate producer program is now closed for "Attack of the Moon Zombies." A big thank you goes out to all of the folks who stepped up and, through their generous contributions, made this sure-to-be-a-hit film possible!

Lastly, we've been informed that an official poster AND trailer should be available soon. Also, we will begin selling advance tickets to the world premiere VERY SOON, so stay tuned!

Happy Monster Day!
Happy Monster Day!

It was exactly FIVE years ago on March 9th, 2006 that "The Monster of Phantom Lake" held it's world premiere at the Heights Theatre to a near-sold-out crowd. As early as that night, the film began to receive positive press and would go on to receive tons more. Since it's release, it has screened across the world, appearing in over a dozen film festivals and earning handfuls of awards.

Dubbed "the little movie that could," "The Monster of Phantom Lake" is where the Mihmiverse officially began, introducing the ever-growing fan base to such staples as the Jackson family, "A-Rockin', A-Rollin', All the Way A-Ramblin'," the Canoe Cops, the "flashlight thing," and much, much more!

It's almost hard to believe it's been half a decade since the release of the movie that started the Mihmiverse. Just remember, without "The Monster of Phantom Lake," we would never have been introduced to this enduring and endearing universe! So, raise a glass to five more years (and ideally, five more great Mihm movies), and tell everyone you know: "HAPPY MONSTER DAY!"

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

This Friday, don't forget to check out "Terror from Beneath the Earth" on the all new Monster Channel! The film will be hosted by the official horror host of the Mihmiverse, Dr. Ivan Cryptosis. Festivities begin at 7:00 (CDT), so be there or Dr. Cryptosis will most likely make fun of you!

We just posted the text of the previously mentioned Examiner.com article about writer/director Christopher R. Mihm on the press page. It's an entertaining read and definitely worth checking out! Click here to view the full text of the article!

Cool press alert! We've just received word that two separate interviews with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm will be appearing soon!

The first is a profile of Mr. Mihm for Darrell Moen, the Minneapolis movies examiner at Examiner.com. Mr. Moen also recently wrote a glowing review of "Terror from Beneath the Earth" that is definitely worth a read. Check it out on the press page or by clicking here.

The other soon-to-be-released article is the most impressive to date! Mr. Mihm has been interviewed and will be featured in the May/June issue of Sci-Fi Magazine, the official magazine of the SyFy Channel! The issue won't be in stores until the end of April, but it is definitely going to be worth the wait!

How's this for a nice little valentine from the Mihmiverse: as of this past Saturday night, principal photography of "Attack of the Moon Zombies" is COMPLETE (aside from a handful of small special effects shots)!

The final day of shooting turned into a marathon -- a full 12 hours consisting of three pivotal scenes made up of thirteen dialogue heavy script pages. Actors Mike Cook (Dr. Vincent Edwards), Sid Korpi (Administrator Ripley), Doug Sidney (Dr. Collins), Shannon McDonough (Dr. Hackett), and Robert Silinghia (Dr. Huer), writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, and executive producer Rylan Bachman were all in attendance. The final call for cut was punctuated by writer/director playfully punching through one of the thin set walls and was celebrated by a quickly drained bottle of merlot.

Filming of "Attack of the Moon Zombies" began in September 2010 and lasted, on and off, almost exactly five months. Aside from a very nasty cold/cough/flu virus that tore through the production and forced a small bit of rescheduling, the process of filming the movie was almost entirely without complication. And, because the shoot was so spread out, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has told us that he is only 7 scenes away from having the final edit of the finished film!

Congratulations to the cast and extensive crew for completing an at-times gruelling shoot! Needless to say, we CANNOT wait to see the final product!

The film will be hosted by the official horror host of the Mihmiverse, Dr. Ivan Cryptosis. Festivities begin at 7:00 (CDT), so be there or Dr. Cryptosis will NOT be happy!

Mihm including such star-making turns as the monster in "The Monster of Phantom Lake" and the mutant bat creature in "Terror from Beneath the Earth."
