The second decade of the Mihmiverse begins with the official announcement of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's next film, "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter!"
Horrific Nazi experiments have left a surviving WWII soldier with a terrifying condition: at the sight of fresh blood, he transforms into a man-sized, blood-sucking killer insect! Refusing to let his affliction destroy him and all he loves, he instead commits himself to using his "powers" for goodby finding the people responsible and bringing them to justice!
The film is currently being scripted and, should everything work out just right, will premiere in early October 2016!

The Giant Claw (1957)
Directed by Fred F. Sears
Starring Jeff Morrow and Mara Corday
This movie can easily be summed up in four tantalizing words: giant space turkey attacks! Basically, an overgrown "anti-matter" bird from space appears and starts destroying everything in its path. Humanity tries to fight back but every weapon tried fails miserably because of the creature's natural "anti-matter" defenses. Worst of all, with mankind on the brink of possible extinction, the bird's true intentions are revealedit's building a nest! Naturally, it's up to a trio of scientists to figure out how to break through the "anti-matter barrier" and stop the creature once and for all. This film is considered one of the worst ever made but honestly, I totally disagree. Yes, it is "bad," but in all the right ways! The giant turkey creature is effectively cheesy and in almost every shot, you can see the strings. The plot is cliché, the acting is barely passable, the "action" is hardly exciting and yet, the movie is still a heck-of-a-lot of fun. Check it out if you get the chance.

Instead of celebrating November with Thanksgiving related trivia, I decided to celebrate the OTHER November holiday: Veteran's Day. The men and women who serveand have servedour country should be thanked and honored for everything they've done to keep us safe. In World War II specifically, it seems that in addition to the ground and air war...there was also a horror and science fiction war...that didn't end in 1945. These cheesy classics seem to prove it. Name them.
(Note: I had NO idea Mr. Mihm was planning a Nazi based film when I put this together! Pretty creepy....)
1. (1941) A German doctor has taken over an island and is turning the natives into zombies while trying to get classified secrets from a captured American admiral through the use of hypnosis. Although racial stereotyping makes this film a bit cringe-worthy for today's audiences, some folks believe it's one of the best of the war-time horror-comedies. Dick Purcell, Joan Woodbury and Mantan Moreland starred.
2. (1943) When Dr. Von Altermann's wife Lila dies mysteriously at his spooky mansion, her friends and relations suspect murder. Little do they suspect that he's turning her into a zombie to join the army of living dead he hopes to devote to the Nazi cause. The problem: Lila, though dead, has developed a will of her own. Once again Mantan Moreland starred, along with Gale Storm and horror legend John Carradine.
3. (1966) Dana Andrews starred in this film about a crazed scientist who keeps the heads of Nazi war criminals alive until he can find appropriate bodies on which to attach them so he can revive the Third Reich. (Andrews' character was called Norberg...which, in the loosest possible connection to the Mihmiverse, is the nickname we've given our friend James Norgard.)
4. (1968) At the end of World War II, Nazi officials spirited the living head of Adolf Hitler out of Germany to a hiding place in South America, in order to revive the Third Reich at a later date. By the 1960s these men believed the time had come, so they kidnap a top scientist in order to force him to help keep Hitler alive. This TV movie starred no one you've ever heard of.
5. (1977) Horror legends Peter Cushing and John Carradine starred with Brooke Adams in a film about a yachting party that runs aground on an island after they hit an odd-looking freighter. Once beached, they meet an aging SS Commander who had been in charge of a crew of zombies.

The holidays are upon us once again and with holidays come family traditions. Often, a lot of our traditions center around special foods we eat on those special days, like the stuffing grandma always brings or the lumpy mashed potatoes that are so darn tasty because Auntie Pat made them with love.
Our family has a traditional food we would like to share with the entirety of the Mihmiverse family this holiday season. We affectionately call it Ceremonial Green Stuff, but you may know it as Pistachio Salad or Pineapple Fluff!
(AKA Ceremonial Green Stuff)
Pour the first three ingredients (including the pineapple juice) into a bowl.
- 1 16 oz can crushed pineapple in juice
(Do not drain the juice!)
- 1 small package of instant pistachio pudding
- 1 8 oz tub of Cool Whip whipped topping
- 1 cup of mini-marshmallows
Mix with a large spoon.
Once thoroughly combined, add the marshmallows and fold in.
Place in a lovely, festive serving dish.
Cover with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated until ready to serve!
This sweet treat is delicious as a side dish or a dessert and is perfect for every holiday meal, year after year! My family, of course, gives it 5 out of 5 "perfectly prepared turkey legs!" ENJOY!
Since so many fans and supporters have joined the official Mihmiverse fan club, we wanted to take time to highlight some of these wonderful people!
This month, we interview Moon Zombies faction member Rick Hutchins!
Introduce yourself to the Mihmiverse!
Hello, Mihmiverse. My name is Rick Hutchins (known online as RJDiogenes). I'm an old-school fan of drive-ins and midnight moviesthey weren't so retro when I was a kidas well as classic genre literature. Back in the 60s and 70s, I used to watch these old movies on Channel 56 in Boston. We also got horror host The Ghoul (Ron Sweed), who was actually based in Cleveland. I'm not an independent filmmaker (yet), but I do have a retro OTR homage on my YouTube page, with at least one more on the way. And I've got a couple of short story collections in print, which are a mix of retro-style homages and contemporary tales.
When and how did you discover the films of Christopher R. Mihm?
I discovered Chris's films five or six years ago on an online forum. We were discussing old B-movies and Chris was mentioned. I found his movies on Amazon (I think there were five at the time) and bought them all. I've been a fan and contributor ever since, and I've even been able to make the pilgrimage out to Minneapolis a couple of times for premiere night. I hope the Mihmiverse continues to expand for a long time.
Which of the ten released films is your favorite and why?
It's hard to pick a favorite. Like "Star Trek," I consider the Mihmiverse to be one big, complex story. However, if pressed, I would have to choose "Terror From Beneath The Earth." In my first run through these movies, it was this one that really sold me on Chris and what he was trying to do. Unlike Larry Blamire (whose films I do love), Chris plays it straight with his stories and characters. In "Terror from Beneath the Earth," Daniel R. Sjerven's character goes underground to save his children from the monsterclearly he is no match for this superhuman mutated creature, yet he is willing to go up against it with his bare hands for the sake of his kids. Despite the context of retro B-movie sets and special effects, this character and his feelings are not trivialized by either the writing or the performance. Quite the opposite, his bravery and devotion are very touching. It was when I was watching that scene that I became a die-hard Mihmiverse fan.
When you joined the fan club, you chose to join the Moon Zombies faction. Why?"
At the time, there was a deficit of Moon Zombies. I sided with the underdogs.
If you could suggest anything regarding the direction of the future of the Mihmiverse, what would you suggest? What do YOU want to see?
I think what I'd like to see more of in the Mihmiverse is music. "Paddlin' Along" and "A-Rockin', A-Ramblin, All the Way A-Ramblin'" are great, but not enough. What we really need is a song-filled Mihmiverse rock 'n' roll beach monster movie along the lines of "The Beach Girls and the Monster." Of course, it would have to be on the beach of Phantom Lake. I'm also hoping that the "Phantom Files" TV series and the Mihmiverse pulp magazine someday see the light of day. There's no such thing as too much Mihmiverse.
