Want to become an associate producer of an honest-to-goodness movie for next to nothing? Filmmaker Christopher R. Mihm, of “Attack of the Moon Zombies” fame offers associate producer-ships for his upcoming sure-fire B-movie hit, “House of Ghosts,” for a mere $50 investment. For that amount, you get two commemorative tickets to the premiere, five copies of the DVDs AND your name up on the silver screen for all time! You actually end up making money as soon as you invest because that package is worth at least $70! Go to to sign up today.

But if $50 is a bit steep for your budget these days and you still wish to help Mihm make his seventh B&W ’50s-drive-in-style movie, you can invest as little as a dollar at this site, set up on Mihm’s behalf by producer Rylan Bachman: The more you can donate, the bigger and better your material rewards. A minimum of $333 is needed by September to put through the funding, and the pledges so far have accumulated almost half that. Spread the word and help get this project underway.

A synopsis of “House of Ghosts”

With “House of Ghosts,” his first supernatural thriller and seventh movie, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm pays tribute to the works of the master of classic horror, William Castle! Rich socialites Isaac and Leigh have a tradition of throwing exclusive dinner parties that include unique (and expensive) forms of entertainment. This time, they’ve booked a spiritual medium who promises to “open a portal to the great beyond” and allow the couple’s equally eccentric guests to contact the “afterworld.” But, before he begins his presentation, the occultist offers a warning: once the door has been opened, no human being can anticipate or control what might come through. Regardless, the group collectively agrees to go forward, only to find itself greatly disappointed by the results… at first. Trapped in the couple’s oversized house by a massive winter storm, the partygoers begin to experience unexplainable and increasingly frightening things. As these occurrences intensify, it becomes apparent that something evil is at work. Can the group survive the night or will ignoring the medium’s warning be the last thing they ever do?

NOTE: All of my dogs have been associate producers of Mihm movies in the past, and my cat, Giles and Xander, are slated to associate produce this latest awesome flick. (“House of Ghosts” will begin filming in MY house this August and will feature not only my husband and me, but our Westies, in pivotal roles!)
