The next great Mihmiverse film, "Demon with the Atomic Brain," is IN THE CAN! On Sunday, June 4th, cameras captured the final frame of principal photography, thus giving writer/director Christopher R. Mihm enough footage to eventually complete his twelfth film in as many years (13 if you include "The Monster of Phantom Lake: The Musical!")!

We're told that 45 minutes of the finished film have been edited and, should everything work out just right, Mr. Mihm is hoping to premiere the movie the first week of October—just in time for him to jet down and present it at the Lake Charles Film Festival in Lake Charles, LA and HOPEFULLY bring it to the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas!

To celebrate this big step forward, check out the really cool still provided by Mr. Mihm below! The photo features Mihmiverse newcomer Brian Gibson (as Dr. Denning) and Christian Finch (last seen in "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter" as Gruber) confronting a never-before-seen flying creature!

For each $25.00 donation, all contributors will be entitled to having a single name* of their choosing listed in the contributors section of the closing credits of the film, a customized, frameable document certifying their participation in the program and one (1) copy of the finished film!

The Basement Sublet of Horror is a horror host television program featuring Gunther Dedmund. Gunther lives in a basement sublet apartment and hosts campy horror films that he sometimes re-edits into new parodies of the genre or hosts the films in a traditional way. It's weird, it's fun, it's Gunther Dedmund's strange little show.

In addition, the Basement Sublet of Horror is a quarterly magazine dedicated to the best in horror! The latest issue was just released at the annual Monster Bash convention and it's dedicated solely to the films of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm! The issue includes articles written by Stephen D. Sullivan (author of "Canoe Cops vs. The Mummy"), Derek M. Koch of Monster Kid Radio, Jeff Owens of the Classic Horrors Club, Monster Movie Kid Rich Chamberlain, and more!

Lobby cards are a form of movie advertising that were quite common from the early days of film, up through the B-movie-rich 1950s and '60s. Usually issued in sets of eight, each card featured a different scene from the film. These days, full sets of lobby cards are highly sought after by collectors.

After releasing lobby card sets for almost all of the released Mihmiverse films, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has created a new set in honor of the tenth anniversary of his second film, "It Came From Another World!"

Available as an extremely-limited-run collectible, this set of eight 8.5" x 11" lobby cards depicts scenes from the film and are hand-colorized and stylistically "weathered" to look extra retro!

The Mihmiverse Monthly Audiocast is hosted by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and is focused specifically on what's going on RIGHT NOW in the Mihmiverse. In addition, Mr. Mihm will discuss the monster movie-making process, touch briefly on the future of the 'verse, pontificate on random subjects, and be joined by guests from within and without the Mihmiverse. PLUS, each episode will include something unique you won't find anywhere else!

In the interest of expanding the reach of the Mihmiverse, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has cast a handful of actors new to most Mihmivites in his next film, "Demon with the Atomic Brain." To introduce these fine folks to the fans, we'll be including a short interview with a different person each month leading up to the release of the film!

This month, we talk to Addison Pennington who will be performing the role of McCarthy!

Introduce yourself to the Mihmiverse!
My name is Addison Pennington. I have been working as a union electrician for over four years, and before that, served in the U.S. Army National Guard. During my military time, I was sent overseas to Iraq for a tour and my total time on active duty equals about 6 years. I started acting very recently (only about a year ago) and this is my first film experience. I couldn't have asked for a more inviting crew to work with!

Tell us about your experience auditioning for "Demon with the Atomic Brain." In your opinion, how did the shoot go?
My audition was kind of funny to me. I thought for a long time about what to try and use for my audition, until suddenly an idea popped into my head. I'd watched the promos for all of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's movies and scoured SaintEuphoria.com so I knew exactly what to do. I had to play to the "über-geek factor" and choose a monologue from an old golden age sci-fi flick¨...and what could be a better monologue than the "Tears in Rain" speech from "Bladerunner?" Needless to say, it worked and I was picked!

The film shoot was more involved than what I would have expected, mostly because the amount of attention to detail Mr. Mihm puts into each scene clearly reflects the love he has for his cinematic universe.

What most excites you most about being in "Demon with the Atomic Brain?" What makes you most nervous?
The movie itself seems like it's going to be a blast! My character is (SPOILERS!) rather short-lived, but based on the fun time we had, I feel pretty confident it will translate to the screen with the same energy. I'm rather nervous about seeing myself in a film for the first time so, if I bomb, I'll sneak out the back before anyone notices I'm gone! In all seriousness, I know it will be a great time to see it!

Any parting thoughts?
(MORE SPOILERS!) I did try to pitch the idea of my character carving his way out of his method-of-demise with a pocket knife and emerging as a psycho villain! Judging by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's blank expression, my idea was not well received. That, or his mind was off somewhere in the darkest corners of the Mihmiverse deciding how best to save the known universe from the "Demon With the Atomic Brain!"

Thanks for the opportunity to become part of the Mihmiverse!

The Blob (1957)
Directed by Irvin Yeaworth
Starring Steve McQueen and Aneta Corsaut

A terrifying hunk of space gelatin crash lands on Earth in a meteorite and instantly begins consuming the denizens of small town U.S.A. in one of the best known sci-fi/horror films of the 1950s. "The Blob" follows a teenage "gang of ne'er-do-wells" led by a young Steve McQueen (billed as Steven McQueen in his first lead role), as they discover the threat posed by the invader and try to warn the townsfolk of the impending danger. Sadly, no one will listen as people continue to disappear and the blob grows ever bigger. In one of the most iconic scenes from the "drive-in cinema" era, the otherworldly ooze terrorizes the local movie house as the unstoppable substance chases moviegoers out into the street before squeezing through the theater's doorways. Eventually, the blob traps people inside the local diner and the local authorities must figure out a way to stop it before it consumes the entire planet (or something equally sinister)! "The Blob" is, by far, one of the best science fiction films of the 1950s. Everything from the acting, directing and special effects—to the truly disturbing and often frightening story—are top notch. If you're looking for a way to introduce new people to the wonders of cheesy 1950s cinema, this film is a safe place to start! I heartily recommend it!

The Weird Weird West!

While fans wait for Mihm to get on (or off) his horse and make a western, let's celebrate those cheesy combos—Horror/Sci-fi Westerns—from those golden days of yesteryear!

1. (1935) Gene Autry starred as—well, Gene Autry—in this film about a rancher who discovers that an ancient race of people from the lost continent of Mu have been living in the caves below his Radio Ranch. Their high-falutin' technology includes ray guns and something called "television," much of it created by using their rich supply of radium. Once the townsfolk find out, the peaceful Muranians are corrupted by greed and an all out war over the radium is about to break out. Can Gene stop the war and make it to his weekly radio broadcast in time? Will he sing a few tunes? Will someone be able to name the movie?

2. (1956) Well I'll be darned...it ain't the coyotes that are eatin' the cattle...it's a dad-blamed DINOSAUR! It's up to an American cowboy living in Mexico (played by Guy Madison) to stop the madness—and not by building a wall. Name the film!

3. (1958) In 1880, a young boy in a western town is affected by radiation from a meteor, which turns him into a hairy teenaged psychopathic monster. His mom (played by Anne Gwynn) hides him in the basement. It doesn't end well.

4. (1959) Hey, sidewinder! That hired gunslinger is bloodthirsty for a reason: he's also a vampire! It's up to Preacher Dan Young to stop the bloodshed—in more ways than one! Eric Fleming plays the preacher, and co-stars include John Hoyt (who later went on to have featured roles in everything from "Hogan's Heroes," to "The Virginian," and finally, Grandpa Kanisky on "Gimme a Break.") Name the film!

5. (1966) A legendary outlaw from the old west is on the run from Marshall McPhee, so he hides out in an old Mexican castle, where he meets Maria—who turns Hank (his slow-witted accomplice) into a bald zombie she calls "Igor." John Lupton plays the outlaw. Narda Onyx plays Maria. Both the story and the title are ridiculous. Can you name it?

6. (1966) This one is just as ridiculous. A famous vampire moves to the American west where he sets his sights...and his teeth...on the girlfriend of a famous outlaw who isn't about to let this happen without some bloodshed—if you know what I mean. At least this one featured a bona fide horror legend: John Carradine. Name it!

...and then there was that western about some kid named Marty and his friend Doc Brown who time traveled back to 1885...I think Mary Steenburgen was in it...

It's July, a time when a lot of people in America watch the skies. I'm going to tell you about an important moment in science that occurred in a July sky! No, it's not the Apollo 11 moon landing (this time) but something you can still see if you know where to look: Telstar 1!

Back in 1962, NASA launched the communications satellite on July 10th. Owned by AT&T, this was the first launch of a privately-owned satellite and paved the way for the current private-public partnership in space between NASA and companies like SpaceX. Telstar 1 could transmit telephone calls, television signals, pictures, data from one side of the world to the other and made many firsts in history (1st telephone call via satellite, 1st transatlantic television broadcast, et cetera). It paved the way for the modern world of communicating quickly all over the world.

Telstar was the first active communications satellite but it was soon joined by many more...which was a good thing for AT&T. Unfortunately, Telstar 1 was not "long for this world," so to speak. Because of high altitude nuclear testing from both the USA and the Soviet Union, Telstar's delicate electronics were fried and it went out of service in February of 1963. It may be a dead satellite now but you can still see it if you know where to look, because it is still orbiting 55 years later. It's hard to see with the naked eye but, when you're watching the fireworks this Independence Day, cast your eye a little further and remember this pioneer. If not for this little 3 foot long ball (that kind of looks like a big version of the light saber training drone from "Star Wars"), we wouldn't be able to watch the finale of "Doctor Who" at the same time as our friends in Britain! If that's not a worthy cause for SCIENCE, I don't know what is.

Join us on July 8th to see a double feature of "Voyage to the Planet of Teenage Cavewomen" and "Slave Girls on the Moon" at the Gateway Film Center in Columbus, OH!
"The Monster of Phantom Lake," "It Came From Another World!," "Cave Women on Mars," "Terror from Beneath the Earth," "Destination: Outer Space," "Attack of the Moon Zombies," "House of Ghosts," "The Giant Spider," "The Late Night Double Feature," "Danny Johnson Saves The World," "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter" and "The Monster of Phantom Lake: The Musical" DVDs are now available at SaintEuphoria.com, the online home of the films of Christopher R.
