Writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has designed a brand new, full-sized (8.5" x 11"), 12-month wall calendar for 2020!

This year's theme celebrates the entire Mihmiverse catalog, with each month featuring colorized images, posters, and premiere ticket art. AND, every calendar will be personally signed by Mr. Mihm himself!

As in previous years, the 2020 Mihmiverse wall calendar will be released in EXTREMELY limited quantities (less than 100 will be produced), will be individually numbered and, once they're gone, they are gone for good!

This item is currently PRE-ORDER ONLY. Calendars will ship in mid- to late-November!

$19.99 each (+$4.99 shipping & handling)


Continue your new holiday tradition by adding some retro-monster-cheer to your decorations with the fourth annual Mihmverse holiday ornament!

This year's exclusive ornament is the title creature from the latest Mihmiverse release, "Queen of Snakes!"

Designed as a "companion piece" to last year's mutant bat (from "Terror from Beneath the Earth"), 2017's Steve (from "Danny Johnson Saves The World"), and 2016's Monster of Phantom Lake (from the film of the same name) ornaments, this limited-edition collectible is lovingly hand-crafted by members of the Mihm family, individually numbered and includes the year.

Because stock is limited to no more than 25 ornaments, we highly recommend ordering NOW to ensure shipment in time for the holidays—AND to make sure you get one, because once they're sold out...no more will be made—EVER!

$12.99 (+$4.99 shipping & handling)

As post-production of the next great Mihmiverse film, "The Phantom Lake Kids in The Beast Walks Among Us," continues, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention that contributor credits are STILL AVAILABLE for purchase! However, with the project coming quickly to a close (just in time to begin work on the next, NEXT Mihmiverse film, "That Which Lurks in the Dark"), time is running out to get YOUR name into the credits!

In "The Phantom Lake Kids in The Beast Walks Among Us," a local man is suspected of having been transformed into a hideous monster and it's up to a scrappy gang of local kids to uncover the truth and save Phantom Lake County—and everyone in it—from certain doom! Writer/director Christopher R. Mihm is creating a "triple tribute" to the creature-features of the 1950s, the history of the Mihmiverse, and "Scooby Doo!"

According to Mr. Mihm, this film will follow Danny Johnson (last seen in 2015's "Danny Johnson Saves The World"), his sister Evelyn and three of their buddies on another adventure into the Mihmiverse. This one, however, will be special in that it is being specifically designed to reference as much "Mihmiverse history" as possible and will include a bevy of familiar faces, characters and locations!

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 one (1) copy of the finished film! Additional copies of the film and/or world premiere tickets may be pre-ordered as "add-ons" ($10 each) with the purchase of at least one credit.


Credits can even be given as gifts! Imagine the looks on the faces of your loved ones when they find out their names will be immortalized on the silver screen! With several major gift-giving holidays just around the corner, now is the time to give this most unique of gifts. AND, between now and December 20th, for every credit purchased, you will receive a hand-signed letter from writer/director Christopher R. Mihm certifying your contribution!

Separate credits by commas, & or "and." 


NOTE: If you purchase one of the following credits, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm will contact you shortly after to discuss your purchase!

Associate producers will earn IMDb and on-screen credits and will be allowed certain privileges of producership, including free, exclusive merchandise and other perks (TBD).

*A single credit is defined as the name of one (1) person or corporate entity. Any credit requiring the word "and," an ampersand (&), and/or a comma (except when part of a legal company name) will constitute multiple credits and MUST BE paid for separately.

If you're not aware, almost every Mihmiverse film is currently available to be streamed on Amazon Prime! Amazon, however, is currently undergoing a "silent purge" of independent films on its service. Many films of a particularly lower-budget stripe are starting to be pulled (without explanation) in an attempt by the company to "clean up" its movie selection. Unfortunately, the works of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm are not immune.

The first Mihmiverse film to be dropped from their service was "Destination: Outer Space" and, unfortunately, once removed, it CANNOT be resubmitted and will NOT be reconsidered by the service. Again, there was no explanation beyond a vague boilerplate response about "customer quality standards." "Destination: Outer Space" was the first Mihmiverse film to have a "star rating" slip below three and, as far as we can tell, that's the biggest reason it was dropped.

For a majority of people around the world, streaming has become the de facto home delivery method for movies, and having the films of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm available on one of the largest services is important to help fund future projects!

To make sure the films STAY on Amazon Prime, we desperately need your help—and it's easy to do! Simply stream any Mihmiverse film from beginning to end. Once it's done, give it a star rating. Then, if you feel so inclined, give it a review! Be honest! Tell the world what you think! THEN, encourage everyone you know to do the same! The more streaming minutes the 'verse gets, the more likely the films will remain on the service, so feel free to view (and rate!) the entire collection!

Thank you for your help!

Welcome to the Mihmiverse Monthly feature where we talk to YOU, the fans! Every month, we choose a random Mihmivite and ask them a few Mihmiverse-related questions in an attempt to get to know them better and find out what they REALLY think about the films of Christopher R. Mihm!

This month, we interview Dakota Hardisty!

Introduce yourself to the Mihmiverse!
My name is Dakota Hardisty and I've been to a handful of Mihmiverse premieres. I've been on the Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast and I attended a 24-hour Mihmiverse movie marathon hosted by the official horror host of the 'verse, Dr. Bob Tesla. I'm also one of the original super-fans—I've basically grown up in the Mihmiverse!

When and how did you discover the films of Christopher R. Mihm?
I discovered the Mihmiverse around 2010 after I was gifted a set of every movie at the time, right before "Destination: Outer Space" was released. I was told by family that I'd love the movies and they were absolutely correct! I've gone to the premieres of "House of Ghosts," "The Giant Spider," "Danny Johnson Saves the World," "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter," as well as all four performances of "The Monster of Phantom Lake: The Musical!." I've even sat in on a Rock Monsters* curling match!

* The Rock Monsters is the official curling team of the Mihmiverse, the members of which include writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, Stephanie "Queen of Snakes" Mihm, Alice "Evelyn Johnson" Mihm, Mark "General Castle" Haider, and "monster of all trades" Michael Kaiser.

If you had to pick just ONE, which of the Mihmiverse films would be your favorite?
My favorite Mihmiverse movie would probably have to be either "The Monster of Phantom Lake" or "Attack of the Moon Zombies."

Tell us how you, in particular, show your "Mihmiverse pride!"
I show my Mihmiverse pride by watching the movies every couple of months and frequently listening to the cast recording of the songs from "The Monster of Phantom Lake: The Musical!"

Where would you like to see the Mihmiverse go in the future?
As for the future of the Mihmiverse, there's always more room for more Canoe Cops!

The Deadly Mantis (1957)
Directed by Nathan Juran
Starring Craig Stevens and William Hopper

After an arctic glacier mysteriously thaws, a giant praying mantis appears, flies around a lot and causes general mayhem and destruction—which is basically the entire film in a nutshell. The movie features relatively passable special effects (including a pretty cool finale taking place inside a tunnel), surprisingly decent acting and lots of stock footage (a common practice at the time the film was made and one I replicated in my own "giant bug" movie, "The Giant Spider"). Overall, the movie fits nicely in the 1950's "giant-rampaging-monster" genre, with the "what-seems-only-mildly-annoying-but-then-happens-so-often-it-becomes-painful-but-then-steps-over-an-imaginary-line-and-becomes-very-funny" scenes of the title creature flying through the air (accompanied by the loud buzzing of its wings) making it especially worth checking out! If you're in the mood for a retro "big bug" movie (or two), this one would make a perfect double-feature with "The Giant Spider!"

Did you know that "The Monster of Phantom Lake: The Musical!" is now available to be performed by schools and theatre companies nationwide?!

We offer carefully prepared materials of similar (or higher) quality than what you would receive from one of the big Broadway theatrical licensing companies. However, our independent licensing model allows us offer individualized service catered to your organization. When you decide to license a show with us, the success of your production becomes our number-one priority! Heck, the authors might even fly out to see one of your shows!

Production packages include scripts, orchestra books, and conductor/accompanist scores (condensed and full score options), all professionally printed in a beautiful and clean format. We even include rehearsal backing tracks that fully match the music printed in the libretto and on the cast recording CD! This is a great option for productions where using a live orchestra isn't possible, for "black box" style theaters, or when your group doesn't have a rehearsal accompanist regularly available.

We also include free logos for use in your advertising materials, and we can offer personalized graphic design as well as transpositions of vocal and orchestra parts on demand. Visit monsterofphantomlake.com to hear songs from the show, learn more about the script, and request a quote, perusal script, or license agreement.
