CURRENT NEWS
The "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter" is coming!

Production of the latest Mihmiverse film continued throughout the month of April and, despite some scheduling issues that resulted in writer/director Christopher R. Mihm having to recast a small (but important) role, principal photography is only DAYS AWAY from completion—in fact, by the time you read this, it may actually BE complete!

Should everything fall into place, things are looking even more promising for the film to be completed and ready for a late September premiere. In fact, Mr. Mihm has been liberally throwing around Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 as the best potential date for the big world premiere!

While we patiently await the debut of the darkest Mihmiverse film to date, we've got another cool still from the film to share! Check it out below!


Weresquito: Nazi Hunter
Writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has been invited back to Blobfest in Phoenixville, PA to present a special screening of "The Late Night Double Feature!"

Blobfest is a three day event which commemorates the original 1958 classic "The Blob" and includes screenings of the film paired with other horror classics, a re-enactment of the iconic running-out-of-the-theater sequence from the film, "The Blob" related guests and memorabilia and a street fair!

Mr. Mihm and several other stars of the Mihmiverse will be in attendance! "The Giant Spider" screened at Blobfest in 2014 and, by all accounts, the event was one for the ages! If you are anywhere near the town of Phoenixville—or even if you're not, but can make it there—we highly recommend coming out to this unique and amazing classic film event!

This year's Blobfest will be held over the weekend of July 8th through the 10th.

Mihmiverse related events are being added to the calendar all the time! Make sure to check out the SaintEuphoria.com events page for a complete list!

*Recordable DVD media (DVD-R) is every-so-slightly less reliable and more prone to malfunction than replicated media.

Lobby cards are a form of movie advertising that were quite common from the early days of film, up through the B-movie-rich 1950s and '60s. Usually issued in sets of eight, each card featured a different scene from the film. These days, full sets of lobby cards are highly sought after by collectors.

After releasing lobby card sets for seven of the ten released Mihmiverse films, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has created a new set for his third, "Cave Women on Mars!"

Available as an extremely-limited-run collectible, this set of eight 8.5" x 11" lobby cards depicts scenes from the film and are hand-colorized and stylistically "weathered" to look extra retro!

Weresquito: Nazi Hunter
DON'T FORGET! Just because principal photography of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's next film, "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter," is almost complete, that doesn't mean the film doesn't still need funds to release it! Post production can be one of the most taxing and financially draining stages in the production of any film. We encourage you to contribute to the film to ensure it will be completed on time and look as amazing as it possibly can!

In "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter," horrific Nazi experiments have left a surviving WWII soldier with a terrifying condition: at the sight of fresh blood, he transforms into a man-sized, blood-sucking killer insect! Refusing to let his affliction destroy him and all he loves, he instead commits himself to using his "powers" for good—by finding the people responsible and bringing them to justice!

Following the overwhelming success of previous contribution programs for writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's past films, contributor credits are NOW AVAILABLE for the latest!

For each $25.00 donation, all contributors will be entitled to having a single name* of their choosing listed in the contributors section of the closing credits of the film, a customized, frame-able document certifying their participation in the program and a choice of one (1) copy of the finished film (format of your choice) OR one (1) collector's ticket to the film's world premiere!

Additional copies of the film and/or premiere tickets may also be pre-ordered as "add-ons" ($10 each) with the purchase of at least one credit. ALSO, for every contribution received, all members of the official Mihmiverse fan club will receive an exclusive "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter" teaser poster!

Contributor credits can even be given as gifts!

CLASSIC MOVIE OF THE MONTH
Panic in Year Zero (1962)
Directed by Ray Milland, starring Ray Milland, Jean Hagen and Frankie Avalon

Ray Milland does double-duty as lead actor and director in this cold war gem about what happens to the perfect nuclear family (no pun intended!) when the "enemy" drops atomic bombs on all major U.S. cities. Unable to return home from their camping trip, the family (including a non-Beach-dancing Frankie Avalon as the eldest son) is forced to hole up in the hills where they must use all their survival skills to overcome rising lawlessness. Surrounded by a morally crumbling and frightened society, the family has to make hard decisions in a desperate effort to hold on to their traditional values while those values unravel in everyone they meet. This film is superbly written in a very unsentimental way, treating a 1950s/60s hot-button "what-if" scenario with dead seriousness. The acting, for the most part, is decent. Aside from the oddly bored teenage daughter, every actor in the film does a great job. The movie is quite dark and the subject matter (and the way it's handled) is heavy in all the right ways. Not a happy film by any stretch of any imagination, "Panic in Year Zero" instead serves as a great example of the fears and mindset of the average post-war 1950s suburban family brought to shocking life on the silver screen. Personally, I found this film to be surprisingly good. Though I don't often advocate for remakes, I think this movie could easily be (and SHOULD BE) updated and remade to reflect modern fears surrounding life in post-9/11 America. Depending on the angle the story is approached from (and how well it's made), it could be both entertaining AND thought-provoking!

THE TRIVIA CORNER
Silence Fiction!

In space, no one could hear you scream...at least before 1930.

Name these "seminal silent sci-fi flicks" (after you say it 5 times real fast)!

1. (1902) Frenchman Georges Melies was responsible for the very first sci-fi film—a masterpiece about space flight that was made a year before the Wright bothers flew their plane at Kitty Hawk!

2. (1910) The first American-made sci-fi film was about a man who creates "reverse gravity" and travels to another planet. It was made by a man named Thomas Edison. Yes, THAT Thomas Edison.

3. (1910) Edison also mixed sci-fi and horror with the first screen adaptation of this Mary Shelley classic.

4. (1921) Evil Killer Robots! Only a half hour of footage still exists from the first ever film to feature robots. It was noted at the time for its use of color schemes to indicate darkness, light and even fire.

5. (1925) Claymation was used in film for the first time to create dinosaurs for the film version of a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. (No, it had nothing to do with Sherlock Holmes.)

6. (1927) This Fritz Lang classic about the evils of industry is still considered relevant today. In fact, George Lucas claims this film was instrumental in his creation of C3PO.

FROM THE MIHMIVERSE TEST KITCHENS
Apple Syrup
It's May and that means that very soon, it'll be mama's special day! This year, treat your mama, the mama of your children or a mama special to you, to a beautiful, surprise breakfast in bed of something sweet (and easy-to-make) like pancakes, waffles, or French toast. To make her feel extra special, I suggest making your own homemade syrup with this alternative to standard maple.

•  1 tablespoon cornstarch
•  1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
•  1/4 ground nutmeg
•  1-1/4 cups unsweetened apple juice
•  Sugar substitute equivalent to 4 teaspoons sugar

In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in sugar substitute.

Yield: 1-1/4 cups

I promise your favorite mama will feel like a queen! I give this recipe 5 out of 5 "cuddly bat creatures!"

ENJOY!
