PRLog (Press Release)Aug 10, 2011 – A fan-favored pair of Christopher R. Mihm’s 1950s-style B-movies, “Terror from Beneath the Earth” & “Cave Women on Mars,” will screen exclusively on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2011, 7 p.m. at the New Hope Cinema Grill at 2749 Winnetka Ave. N., New Hope, MN 55427 (763) 417-0017. At this unique venue, viewers can enjoy both movies and an all-you-can-eat buffet of salad, pizza, and soda for just $15; a full bar also is available to adults.

Mihm’s latest release, the wildly popular “Attack of the Moon Zombies,” screened at the Cinema Grill to a sold-out crowd in July. Mihm’s intention is to attract new fans into the Mihmiverse with this showcasing of two more of his purposely campy, drive-in-style, B&W movies.

B-movie aficionados will have the chance to meet the director, some of the actors, and maybe even a monster or two, so bring along a camera. Audience members, as always, are encouraged to come dressed in their finest 1950s togs to fit in with the era. Contests and a silent auction will help to raise funds for Mihm’s upcoming independent film,House of Ghosts,” an homage to director William Castle (“House on Haunted Hill,” “The Tingler,” and others). Also offered will be special deals on becoming an associate producer of the new movie. Mihm-orabilia, including the full set of his six movies—“Monster of Phantom Lake,” “It Came from Another World,” and “Destination: Outer Space” completing the set—will also be available for sale on-site.

“Terror from Beneath the Earth”—Synopsis
After years of underground atomic testing, one of the animals living within the Wisawa caves (a system that stretches from Phantom Lake to the Deadlands) has undergone a radical and unimaginably horrible transformation! While exploring the caves, Dr. Vincent Edwards (Mike Cook) and colleague Rosemary Bennett (Stephanie Mihm) stumble across evidence in the disappearance of local children. After reporting the find to the local sheriff, Dr. Edwards and Rosemary are tapped to lead a rescue attempt. Along with the sheriff (Justen Overlander) and small-town farmer Stan Johnson, the children’s father, (Dan Sjerven), the rescue party quickly comes to the realization that if the caves don’t get them, whatever unseen terror lurking in the shadows just might!

“Cave Women on Mars”—Synopsis
It is the future: 1987. Humanity has finally left the confines of its home world. When the two-man crew of the MARS-1 spaceship lands on the surface of the red planet, they are astonished to find it strangely Earth-like. After deciding to split up and scout around, Lieutenant Elliott (Dan Sjerven) stumbles across an amazing discovery—primitive, matriarchal warrior women! He is promptly taken prisoner by the Martian beauties and led unwillingly across the alien landscape. While his commanding officer, Captain Jackson (Josh Craig), searches for his lost comrade, Lieutenant Elliott encounters unimaginable excitement in the form of fierce monsters, exotic vistas, strange magic and most unexpectedly… true love! An astounding adventure unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, “Cave Women on Mars” is not to be missed!
Can’t make this event? You can still enjoy all the Mihmiverse movies. Each DVD is available for sale for just $10 at http://www.sainteuphoria.com.

IMPORTANT! Purchasing advance tickets to this exclusive double feature—“Terror from Beneath the Earth” and “Cave Women on Mars”—is highly recommended, as there will be no guarantee of walk-in tickets being available. Purchase yours at www.sainteuphoria.com!

Christopher R. Mihm has devoted himself to re-creating the campy, cheesy goodness of old B&W B-movies featuring family-friendly monsters. Lowest-of-the-low-tech and high in fun, his movies are singularly entertaining in a non-CGI way.

Before the premiere:

From Monsters to Zombies to the Heights

  • Article by: PAUL LEVY , Star Tribune
  • Updated: May 24, 2011 – 11:55 PM

Arden Hills filmmaker Christopher Mihm is back tonight with his latest foray into the world of sci-fi cinema.

Christopher Nihm’s new release, “Attack of the Moon Zombies

The Moon Zombies are coming to the Heights.

B-movie maker Christopher Mihm — who’s made his mark with low-budget classics such as “The Monster of Phantom Lake,” “It Came From Another World” and “Cave Women on Mars” –will unveil his latest creation, “Attack of the Moon Zombies,” tonight at the Heights Theater in Columbia Heights.

The Arden Hills creator of “Destination: Outer Space” and “Terror from Beneath the Earth” — his last two productions, which also debuted at the Heights — has a devoted fan base in the Twin Cities and beyond. Way beyond. Last year, Mike Obrecht drove 14 hours from Omaha to help build sets for “Destination.”

First Nebraska, now the moon.

So what can viewers expect?

“One of, if not the best, films I ever made,” Mihm said.

“It’s again another classically styled retro-type B movie,” he said last week. “It’s never stopped being fun. It always feels rewarding to me.”

In fact, with this one, the father of four young children expects to break even. The Heights premiere is sold out — a first — and Mihm is hoping to line up a second local screening.

So what is this eventual classic, which took four months to shoot, about?

Mihm, who runs a small software company, says it’s a scientific expedition on the moon in the 1970s. A strange alien plant sprays spores into the face of one of the scientists, killing him. But the scientist is reanimated — as a leafy plant monster.

Want more? Here are some clues from the on-line poster for this soon-to-be epic:

“The most shocking motion picture of all time.”

“An ancient evil returns to infect mankind … on the moon.”

“You’ll never sleep again.”

The Heights may never be the same.

This message was sent to me from one of our beloved Two Right Feet dance students following the premiere:

Sid,

Thank you, thank you, thank you  so much for letting us know about Christopher Mihm movies!!!!  We had so much fun.

 YOU and Anthony were FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*

The cast was great, the crowd was fun and the whole atmosphere was really relaxed and fun.  We laughed and laughed at the movie, the props, and  the filming.  The kids “got it” which we didn’t know if they would, and they really had a good time too.  They thought you were a beautiful movie star, YOU LOOKED SO GORGEOUS (not that you don’t normally but you know what I mean…the dress, etc…).

Again you have made us HUGE Christopher Mihm cult followers, we are going on the website to get more stuff today!!!  We scored some t-shirts and posters last night.  The movie far exceeded our expectations and was SO WELL WRITTEN and PERFORMED!

 Thanks Sid!!

And from my friend Kerry:

“Sid, We had such an awesome time! … LOVED the MOVIE. I laughed so hard. I think it’s time for a ‘Mystery Science Theatre’ reprise! produced by Mr. Mihm!”

And from our illustrious director, Christopher R. Mihm, himself:

I just wanted to send you all this email and thank you for making both “Attack of the Moon Zombies” the movie and “Attack of the Moon Zombies” the premiere so [goshdarn] wonderful. I said it multiple times that this was the best experience I have ever had making a movie and I want you all to know that that was not me just blowing smoke. I meant it every single time I said it and it’s worth repeating now. Last night’s premiere was amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better night. Thank you all for everything you did for me, the production, and last night’s event! Without you guys, it never could have happened and honestly, the way I feel is so great that it’s literally beyond my ability to put into words.

So, all I can really say is: THANK YOU!

Chris
