This is by far the best film Christopher R. Mihm has ever made. I’d half expected it to be a cross between The Fly and the old Republic serial, Spy Smasher, but instead we get something quite different from that – and quite different from the ten other Mihm films that preceded it. Yes, it […]Read more "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter (2016)"
This is a slow and subtle film, which (after a brief intro) builds its story gradually, showing us what happens rather than telling us what is going on. Which, of course means that a lot of people won’t like it. It is a fairly basic sort of story, in many respects: the all too familiar […]Read more "Robot World (2015)"
“Let me get this straight: your plan for surviving the zombie plague is based on a movie that’s not even about zombies. “Well, if you say it like that…” Man, oh man, oh man… One of those genuine and unlikely surprises I stumbled across not too long ago was the marvelous little zombie film, Hide and Creep, […]Read more "For a Few Zombies More (2015)"
What the *(BLEEP)* did I just watch????? There are no words to describe this film. Seriously. We’ve got grainy black and white nonsense about aliens visiting the small Canadian town of Grand Bosh (really Dresser, Wisconsin, but I can understand why no one wanted to admit it), which somehow drags in all sorts of strange […]Read more "It Came from Somewhere Else (1988)"
There’s one reason to see this film, and that’s the very cool, pedal-powered Aerojet MiniSub the hero tools around in. Well, that’s really not true, either. There is one reason to see this film and it is that it is the first film Roger Corman ever produced. No, it’s that it’s directed by the one and only Wyott […]Read more "Monster from the Ocean Floor (1954)"
The setting? “The Present Day.” Only it is somewhere unspecified in the past, when teenagers still wore their jeans with the cuffs rolled up and Atomic waste still mutated unwary victims into horrible monsters. Probably the Fifties, right? For those of you even slightly familiar with the work of Christopher R. Mihm and his “Mihmiverse”, […]Read more "The Monster of Phantom Lake (2006)"
Perhaps the defining moment in Joshua Kennedy’s latest film comes when his character, Robert Neville, alone in the deserted streets of New York City, sits in a theater and watches a film. Which, naturally is Charlton Heston, sitting in the exact same theater, watching a movie while playing Robert Neville in The Omega Man, and saying the […]Read more "The Alpha Omega Man (2017)"
