Razorteeth (2005)

There was a short film by Andy Kumpon some years ago called “Last Stop Station” which ends with an memorable final declaration:  “This project was made for less than $1000 dollars, shot on video, and edited with scotch tape, so what’s your excuse;” It’s one of those statements I think about a lot, particularly when […]

It Came from Another World! (2007)

This is one of the most important films in Christopher Mihm‘s Mihmiverse: The second one. Yes, we know making one movie, even the most inept and second-rate effort,  is very hard –and it is even harder when we’re talking a film as accomplished and well-made as Mihm’s The Monster of Phantom Lake.  But what really separates the men […]
