As the days get shorter and we march deeper into the holiday season, principal photography of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's NEXT movie, "Annihilate All Humans!," inches ever-closer to completion!

As of the publication date of this newsletter, the main cast has but a single day's worth of filming left. After that, the alien "big bad guys" of the film will need a day (potentially two) to shoot a handful of scenes. Finally, to finish up, Mr. Mihm and his production crew (his two youngest kids, Alice "Evelyn Johnson" Mihm and David "Butch" Mihm) will only have a bunch of flying-saucer-related special effects left!

Based on the current pace of production and post-production, Mr. Mihm anticipates that "Annihilate All Humans!" will be released at some point in the summer of 2023! AND, he's already starting to brainstorm ideas for what comes AFTER this one! As always, when we know what it is, we'll let you know as soon as humanly possible!

Lastly, we've been provided yet another still (seen below) from the new movie! In this exclusive photo, we get our first look at Tyler Haines who has returned to play the role of Agar, a character he originated in 2017's "Demon with the Atomic Brain"—and it's pretty clear there's even more of a connection to that film than was previously revealed! Consider us intrigued as to how deep the connection might go! Unfortunately, we'll just have to wait until next year to find out!

In "Annihilate All Humans!," the world is under attack by flying saucers and only top scientists (Dr. Edwards and Dr. Gabriel) can put an end to their unearthly aggression! Unfortunately, they have no idea it's even happening because they've been kidnapped by General Castle and taken to a remote cabin deep in the woods for some unsolicited rest & relaxation! Can our heroes find their way back to civilization in time to stop the alien menace, or will the seemingly unstoppable space invaders succeed in their quest to ANNIHILATE ALL HUMANS!?

Ever since 2010's "Destination: Outer Space," production of the films of the Mihmiverse has been entirely funded by contributions from individual fans like you—and "Annihilate All Humans!" is no different! The production is in desperate need of contributions to stay afloat—ESPECIALLY now that it's in the midst of principal photography!

For each $20.00 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 and a customized, frame-able document certifying their contribution!

IMPORTANT! Physical media copies of the finished film are NOT automatically included with a basic contribution. If you would like to be guaranteed a DVD or Blu-Ray of the film when it is released, you MUST order it separately (with the purchase of at least one credit)!

Credits can even be given as gifts! Imagine the looks on the faces of your loved ones when they find out their names will be immortalized on the silver screen!

With the expected insanity of the coming holiday season, NOW is the best time to start thinking about your shopping to make sure you get everything for everyone on your list—particularly those cheesy-monster-movie-loving friends and relatives who would appreciated their stockings stuffed with the Mihmiverse!

The following are a few things we currently have available in our online store. (Check out our full store by going HERE!)

In honor of the release of the final Phantom Lake Kids movie, we're offering this very cool, exclusive set of signed character cards that were originally made available at the world premiere of "The Phantom Lake Kids in The Day the Earth Abruptly Almost Ended!"

This set of 4" x 6" photo cards consists of six retro-styled photos of the actors who embody the main characters of the Phantom Lake Kids series of films. AND, each card is individually HAND SIGNED by the actors!

Since the films of Christopher R. Mihm have existed for over 15 years, we figured digging into them would make for an entertaining addition to this newsletter! Thus, in this new section, aptly titled This Month in Mihmiverse History, we'll traipse through the "days of Mihmiverse past" and present some of the most interesting events!

"The Monster of Phantom Lake" was picked up for DVD distribution by Shadow Creek Studios in November of 2006. At the time writer/director Christopher R. Mihm signed the distribution contract, the studio ALSO agreed to distribute the just finished (at the time) "It Came From Another World!" and the next film (which hadn't even been WRITTEN yet), "Cave Women on Mars." Two short years later and after Mr. Mihm and several Mihmiverse actors were hired by the Shadow Creek Studios, the company unceremoniously went out of business and returned all distribution rights to writer/director Christopher R. Mihm.

Production of "Destination: Outer Space" was put on hold in November of 2009 when lead actor, Josh Craig, was blessed with the three-week-early arrival of his son! While Mr. Craig was out on "parental leave," writer/director Christopher R. Mihm focused solely on editing as much of the special-effects-heavy-footage-he-had-already-filmed as possible!

The first image from the production of "Attack of the Moon Zombies" was released in November 2010. Though it didn't provide any real information about the film, it did include a cool "Easter Egg!" Look closely at the image below and you'll see what it was!

The Uncle John's Burger Dog, which began its life as an inside joke between writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and actor Josh Craig and appeared on a fake concession stand poster in "The Giant Spider," debuted as a real product in November of 2013. In conjunction with a small butcher shop in Albertville, MN, and made from farm-raised beef and pork, the Uncle John's Burger Dog was the "unholy union" of a cheeseburger and hot dog. Unfortunely, the product was very high in sodium and, sadly, never properly caught on with the public, despite its irreverent (though criminally underseen) advertising campaign and incredibly delicious flavor. The product disappeared completely less than a year later.

Finally, "The Mihmiverse Holiday Special" debuted the week of Thanksgiving in 2021. Designed as a love letter to retro holiday TV specials like 1965's "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and 1966's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," and to pay direct homage to 1964's sci-fi "cheesefest" "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians," "The Mihmiverse Holiday Special" serves as a de facto mini-sequel to the 2015 fan-favorite film, "Danny Johnson Saves the World!"
The latest episode of the Mihmiverse Monthly Audiocast has arrived!

This month, host writer/director Christopher R. Mihm gets excited for the end of principal photography of "Annihilate All Humans!," talks about how nice it is to feel some form of "normality" again, and recaps all of the spectacular Mihmiverse-related events which took place in October!

Also included: The latest installment of "An Oral History of the Mihmiverse" and another edition of "Atomic Tales," a monthly short story from the author of "The Canoe Cops vs. The Mummy," Stephen D. Sullivan!

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!

Welcome to the Mihmiverse Monthly feature where we talk to YOU, the fans! Every month, we choose a random Mihmivite and ask them a few Mihmiverse-related questions in an attempt to get to know them better and find out what they REALLY think about the films of Christopher R. Mihm!

This month, we interview Betty Reynolds!

Introduce yourself to the Mihmiverse!
Hello! My name is Betty Reynolds. I was born and raised in Texas, but have lived in Alabama for many, many years. I have two grown children and three grandchildren. My husband and I love movies that are not in the "Hollywood mainstream." During our downtime, we love to find movies to watch!

When and how did you discover the films of Christopher R. Mihm?
We came across "The Giant Spider" in or around 2018. We had watched a movie and then looked at the "more like this" section and there it was! We checked it out and loved it! From that point on, we were hooked. We have watched them all over and over again and still love them. Even our nine-year-old grandson loves them—he thinks "Guns of the Apocalypse" is great—and it is!

If you had to pick just ONE, which of the Mihmiverse films would be your favorite?
It is sooooo hard to pick just one! Gosh, I don't know! I guess if I have to pick one, it would be "Queen of Snakes." I have probably watched it at least ten times. It's awesome!

Tell us how you, in particular, show your "Mihmiverse pride!"
I constantly recommend the movies to friends. I always put one on when someone drops by. My main thing is telling everyone about them, though.

Where would you like to see the Mihmiverse go in the future?
Well, I think writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, the actors, and everyone who helps make these films are doing a fantastic job! I would love there to be many, many more Mihmiverse movies and for Mr. Mihm to get some major recognition. I would also love if there were a weekly or even monthly show on one of the streaming channels that would play one of the movies and talk about it throughout, sort of like "The Last Drive-in with Joe Bob Briggs," only it would be just the Mihmiverse movies.
Want to be interviewed for a future edition of the Mihmiverse Fan Focus? Send an email to info@sainteuphoria.com and let us know! Maybe next month the subject will be YOU!
Nightmare Scenarios

November is traditionally full of dark and stormy nights: nights that are ripe for nightmares. This month, we're dipping into film noir/horror with a quiz about films centering around things that go bump in your sleep. Just match the title with the plot line, and see how well you sleep tonight!

Be careful: Two titles are the same, and two plots are similar! (Note: These cheesy nightmares all predate "Elm Street" and "The Shining," so don't expect Freddy or Jack.)

1. "Dementia" (1955)
2. "Nightmare" (1956)
3. "Nightmare" (1964)
4. "Repulsion" (1965)
5. "Point of Terror" (1971)

A. A New Orleans jazz musician has a nightmare about killing a man in a strange house, and suspects it might be true.
B. A nightclub singer has a nightmare about adultery and murder, and suspects it might be true.
C. A woman who disapproves of her sister's boyfriend sinks into depression and begins to have violent nightmares.
D. No dialogue is spoken in this film about a woman's night of nightmarish experiences on skid row.
E. Janet goes to an exclusive private school, and is plagued by nightmares of her asylum-confined mother. After Janet is expelled because of this, the dreams get worse.

The Saga of the Viking Women and their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent (1957)
Directed by Roger Corman
Starring Abby Dalton, Susan Cabot, and June Kenney

Better known by it's shortened (and infinitely easier to remember) title, "Viking Women and the Sea Serpent," this is a great example of what Roger Corman was best at: making classic Z-grade movies that are so bad they become transcendent in their awesomeness! The movie follows a band of models in short-skirted Viking costumes whose men have disappeared somewhere across the sea. Being hearty Viking women, they decide sitting around and waiting is out of the question and instead, load up their own longship and set out to find their men. Not surprisingly—since it's pretty much given away by the title—they tangle with a terrible special effect of a sea serpent and, barely escaping with their lives, eventually end up in an exotic land inhabited by barbarians and ruled by an iron-fisted despot and his wimpy (and mildly offensive by today's standards) son. Will the Viking women find their men? Will they survive their encounter with the uncivilized horde? Will the one dark-haired (and, naturally, evil and untrustworthy) warrior woman find a way to destroy her golden-haired rival and thus claim her rival's "betrothed" for herself? Does it really matter when you're treated to such terrible dialog, surprisingly intense violence for the era in which the film was made, atrocious special effects, sub-par acting, and enough beef- and cheese-cake to feed an army? The answer is a firm and definite "no." If you really enjoy classic low-budget "drive-in cinema," you need to find a copy of this movie RIGHT NOW. You will NOT be sorry!
— Christopher R. Mihm
If you're like most people these days, you tend to stream your favorite TV shows and movies, particularly because it's way more convenient and you have access to them in more places! Did you know there are now several places to stream the entire Mihmiverse catalog?

From the movie that started it all, "The Monster of Phantom Lake," to its musical offshoot, "The Monster of Phantom Lake: The Musical!," and "The Phantom Lake Kids in The Day the Earth Abruptly Almost Ended," everything you need to "visit" the denizens of Phantom Lake County is available for your streaming pleasure!

The ENTIRE filmography of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm (including the recently-released "The Phantom Lake Kids in The Day the Earth Abruptly Almost Ended") is available through the Mihmiverse Vimeo VOD portal!

Every film is presented using the same ultra high-quality renders used for the official Blu-Ray releases and actually feeds video content to the Drive-in Monsters Roku channel. Most importantly, the Mihmiverse Vimeo VOD portal is the ONLY PLACE to legally own the films digitally!

Retro-style monster movies from the wild & weird imagination of cult filmmaker Christopher R. Mihm! From giant, rampaging spiders to alien invasions and bug-eyed horrors, the Drive-in Monsters channel includes the entire catalog of Mr. Mihm's films, exclusive extras, and long lost special features originally released on currently out-of-print physical media! Explore the worldwide, underground cult phenomenon known as the "Mihmiverse" and enjoy the rebirth of the golden age of "drive-in cinema" with the Drive-in Monsters channel!

As of right now, the channel is free... but, that most likely will not last forever! So make sure to enjoy the Drive-in Monsters Roku channel while it's still completely free of charge!

Most of the films of the Mihmiverse are available on Amazon Video. Sadly, as Amazon continues to revise and rewrite its policies, they have downgraded the entire Mihmiverse catalog from "available with Prime" to rental only. Though this wasn't entirely unexpected—given the way the service has been slowly ridding itself of the films of Christopher R. Mihm—we CANNOT guarantee they will still be there on any given day! So, if Amazon is your preferred place to watch the Mihmiverse, enjoy it while it lasts!

NOTE: Amazon has barred writer/director Christopher R. Mihm (and MANY other independent filmmakers) from adding any new films to their service. As far as we have been able to figure out, the service is taking a more "curated" approach to its catalog and, unfortunately, does not have any more room for the cheesy goodness of the Mihmiverse! Therefore, if you're interested in watching the newest films of the Mihmiverse, we highly recommend checking out the Mihmiverse Roku channel, Drive-in Monsters!
Mihmiverse DVDs & Blu-Rays are now available at SaintEuphoria.com, the online home of the films of Christopher R. Mihm. In addition, exclusive movie posters, collectibles and other merchandise are now in stock. Everything is available in extremely limited quantities, so get yours today before they run out!
