The 2014 Mihmiverse Awards nominations are in!

The Mihmiverse Awards (which are colloquially known as the "Versies") have been awarded since 2012 and cover all the fun Mihmiverse-related stuff that took place during the previous calendar year. The specific awards change from year-to-year but generally fall into three categories: awards specific to last year's film (in this instance "The Late Night Double Feature"), awards specific to the Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast and "general Mihmiverse" awards.

Last year's Versies were presented at the "The Late Night Double Feature" premiere pre-party ("The Night Before The Thing") and the audio was recorded and released as the May 2014 episode of the Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast. This year, we are doing something a little different by releasing the list of the nominees (below) and then we will be holding (and recording) an "award show" episode of the Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast to be released on or around May 15th...just in time for the big premiere of the NEXT Mihmiverse film, "Danny Johnson Saves The World!"

If you are nominated (and remember, it's always an honor to be nominated), you are cordially invited to attend the award show (and bring one guest) and, should you win, give your best "Academy Award speech"—the one you've been working on your whole life! The show will be recorded on Tuesday, April 28th (starting at 7:00PM) around the bonfire (naturally) at Castle Haiderov, AKA Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast hosts Rhuby 'n' Hater's house in Roseville, MN!

If you see your name in the nomination list below and would like to attend the event, please contact us at podcast@sainteuphoria.com (or by visiting the contact page and submitting the form) so that we may give you more specific directions!

Also, the latest episode of the new Mihmiverse Monthly Audiocast is here! The Mihmiverse Monthly Audiocast is a podcast hosted by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm that focuses specifically on what's going on RIGHT NOW in the Mihmiverse.

This month, host writer/director Christopher R. Mihm reveals his thoughts after seeing the final edit of the next Mihmiverse film, "Danny Johnson Saves The World," talks about what might be in store for the world premiere and pre-party, and (all for fun, of course) dramatically reads more Amazon.com user reviews of his films!

Though it may disappoint some of you, yesterday's "announcement" of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's next film...was an April Fool's joke. Not surprisingly, we received more than one message saying they wished it weren't! Perhaps someday Mr. Mihm will actually follow up on the idea!

Wednesday, April 1, 2015
With "Danny Johnson Saves The World" complete, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has turned his attention toward the NEXT film AND, he seems to have a very intriguing and unexpected idea.

According to him, the Mihmiverse film for 2016 will be a biopic in the vein of Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" about the process behind what went into making "The Monster of Phantom Lake!" He promises that the film will be presented in black and white (of course) and follow the behind-the-scenes craziness and drama that went into crafting the film that began the Mihmiverse. He also promises to be truthful and unflinching in his portrayal of himself and the others involved. This will NOT be a documentary but a completely dramatized re-telling of what happened...and it'll be released just in time for the 10th anniversary of the release of the original film!

Consider us interested and, frankly, a little curious as to how it'll all turn out. Stay tuned...

Thursday, March 26, 2015

The poster for the latest Mihmiverse film, "Danny Johnson Saves The World," is finally here!

The poster was created by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and its fun, retro design tells us A LOT about the kinds of awe-inspiring stuff we can expect from the finished film, including (but one assumes not limited to) aliens, robots, dinosaurs (!), monsters, flying saucers and "more excitement than any human being can handle!"

The poster is already available for purchase in our online store! Head over to the posters section of our merchandise page to order yours TODAY!

If you would like to view a larger version of the poster, drag your mouse pointer over the image to the right and a bigger (and easier to see) version will automatically pop-up!

ALSO, we've heard rumors that the trailer and advance tickets for the May 20th world premiere will be on sale VERY SOON.

Stay tuned...

We want to hear from you!

With the pending release of the tenth Mihmiverse film in ten years, we're looking to you, the fans, for some input into what you like about the 'verse and...maybe what you don't. Writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and the board members of Saint Euphoria Pictures have put together an online survey to collect this information.

The survey is short (only 10 questions) and is purely for information. It is completely anonymous, so feel free to be brutally honest. This is your chance to influence the future of the Mihmiverse so, if you've been a fan of the films of Christopher R. Mihm in any capacity over the past decade, please help us out by taking the survey!

The survey can be accessed by clicking HERE! Thank you in advance for your time!

THIS JUST IN!

The next Mihmiverse film, "Danny Johnson Saves The World," is COMPLETE! In honor of this occasion, we present to you this very cryptic (but no less COOL) still from the finished film!


Needless to say, we can't wait to see the finished film! Also, because the film is complete, the contributor program for this film is officially closed! Hope you got in on time!

Happy Monster Day!
Happy Monster Day!

On this date nine years ago, "The Monster of Phantom Lake" held it's world premiere at the Heights Theatre to a near-sold-out crowd. As soon as it was released, the film began to receive positive press and, to this day, still garners great reviews. It continues to screen all over the world and has appeared in dozens of film festivals and earned numerous awards.

Dubbed "the little movie that could," "The Monster of Phantom Lake" is where the Mihmiverse officially began, introducing the ever-growing fan base to such staples as the Jackson family, "A-Rockin', A-Rollin', All the Way A-Ramblin'," the Canoe Cops, the "flashlight thing," and much, much more!

Just remember, without "The Monster of Phantom Lake," we would never have been introduced to this enduring and ever-expanding universe! So, don't forget to tell everyone you know, "HAPPY MONSTER DAY!" And... maybe encourage them to check out the entire Mihmiverse catalog!

Friday, March 6, 2015

Spring's just around the corner and its arrival means one important thing: Mihmiverse events—and we just added a pair to the calendar that are too cool to not warrant a mention: two "double-triple-features" of Mihmiverse films at two separate drive-ins near Toledo!

On May 8th, "The Giant Spider" and "The Late Night Double Feature" (Get it? "Double-triple-feature?") will screen at the Field of Dreams Drive-In" in Liberty Center, OH. The next night, the same program will play at the Field of Dreams Drive-In in Tiffin, OH. Writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and some actors and crewmembers will also be in attendance to sell DVDs and sign merchandise!

Visit the events page for more information!

In other news, by complete accident, we've located two sets (each) of the presumed sold-out lobby card sets for "Attack of the Moon Zombies" and "The Giant Spider!" These sets are all that's left and once they are sold, they will never be available again. If you missed out previously, now's your chance to snap up one of the last remaining sets!

Visit the lobby cards section of the merchandise page to order yours before they're gone forever!

Were you one of the four people who were able to procure one of the extremely rare paddle girl paddles (which were signed by all four of the actresses who played the paddle girls in "The Giant Spider")? If not...sadly, your time has run out. The final paddle has been purchased and this ridiculously rare collectible will NEVER be available again.

Better luck next time!

Cool random mention alert!

It has come to our attention that the film that kicked off the Mihmiverse, "The Monster of Phantom Lake," was selected by online horror destination Dread Central as one of "4 Fun Horror Films Shot on a Budget Less Than $10,000!"

Although the film's portion of the article begins by saying there's "...no point in telling you 'The Monster of Phantom Lake' was a great film. It wasn't.," the rest of it is flattering...ish. Either way, as the saying goes, "it's an honor just to be nominated!"
