Mr. Sardonicus (1961)
Directed by William Castle
Starring Guy Rolfe, Ronald Lewis, and Audrey Dalton
"Mr. Sardonicus" is one of William Castle's "gimmick pictures" (alongside such classics as "The Tingler" and "House on Haunted Hill"). This Victorian-era set film tells the tale of Marek Toleslawski, a man from humble beginnings whose father dies and is buried with a winning lottery ticket in his pocket. Unable to let the possibility of riches go, the young Marek digs up his father's grave. However, upon seeing his deceased father's decaying face, the sheer terror felt by Marek freezes his own facial muscles into a horrific, contorted grin. With the prize money, Marek buys himself a castle, title, and new identity: that of Baron Sardonicus, a name chosen in reference to a "sardonic smile," a term used for victims of tetanus. Driven mad by his own distorted features, Baron Sardonicus wears a mask to hide his appearance and cruelly experiments on young women hoping to cure his deformity. The true story begins when Baron Sardonicus' wife contacts her long-lost love, a doctor specializing in 19th-century plastic surgery, and asks him to come to the castle to use his expertise to cure the Baron. He agrees, and in short order, is thrust into a spine-tingling and macabre story about an obsessed man who will stop at nothingeven mutilation and murderto regain his normal looks. In my opinion, "Mr. Sardonicus" is one of William Castle's better films. He does a magnificent job of creating a gothic atmosphere of dread and all the actors, particularly Oskar Homolka as Baron Sardonicus' right-hand-man and enforcer Krull, provide top-notch performances. The movie is quite dark and extremely entertaining. Also, the gimmick for the film involved giving the audience glow-in-the-dark "punishment cards" that gave moviegoers the "ability" to decide Baron Sardonicus' ultimate fate. According to William Castle, two endings were filmed but only one was ever shown as audiences always chose the ending that saw Mr. Sardonicus "getting his just desserts." To date, footage of the "alternate ending" has never been located because, most likely, only one was ever filmed. I highly recommend this film!
Christopher R. Mihm
Eggs and toast are a fantastic choice for breakfast, a snack, lunch or even "brinner" (breakfast-for-dinner). Here is a quick and tasty way to combine them into one fully-incorporated dish!
Bird in a Nest
Using a glass or ring mold, cut and remove a circle in the center of the slice of bread.
- 1 egg
- 1 slice of bread
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- Salt & pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a shallow frying pan and place the slice of bread into the pan.
Crack the egg and place it gently into the hole in the bread.
On medium/low heat, brown each side of the bread until the egg is cooked how you like it.
Salt and pepper to taste!
Best served with a side of fruit, breakfast sausage and/or bacon! My littlest monsters give this quick-dish-with-the-cute-name 5 out of 5 "retro rocket ships!" ENJOY!
Since so many fans and supporters have joined the official Mihmiverse fan club, we wanted to take time to highlight some of these wonderful people!
This month, we interview Monsters faction member Dane Erickson!
Introduce yourself to the Mihmiverse!
Hello! Dane here! Nicknamed "Danger," I work as a personal care aide and also, when I can, as a certified personal trainer and actor. Being from Minnesota, my favorite sport to watch and play is hockey. I like to go camping and hunting, especially pheasant hunting with the dogs.
When and how did you discover the films of Christopher R. Mihm?
About a year ago, I was browsing small budget films on Wikipedia and found "The Monster of Phantom Lake." Impressed by the awards it had won, I went to Amazon.com to rent it. Now, here I am, an owner of all the great Mihmiverse films!
Which of the ten released films is your favorite and why?
My favorite would be the first one I watched, "The Monster of Phantom Lake." It's got a great classic horror film recipe: a group of teens go into the woods and, unfortunately for them, there is a not-so-friendly monster there. Also, Professor Jackson's techno-babble, of course, and the debut of my fellow "Scandinavian friends," Sven and Gustav.
When you joined the fan club, you chose to join the Monsters faction. Why?
The Monsters faction is where it's at! With "The Monster of Phantom Lake" being my favorite (and the first Mihmiverse film I saw), it's the perfect choice for me!
If you could suggest anything regarding the direction of the future of the Mihmiverse, what would you suggest? What do YOU want to see?
Being a fan of the Universal Monsters, I think it would be cool to see the Mihmiverse include some classic creatures like vampires and werewolves. It would be stellar to see a personal investigator character or a movie which includes some mystery/detective work. I would like to see the Mihmiverse MORE interlinked and include EVEN MORE canon events!
