"Terror from Beneath the Earth"
Billed as "The Horrifying Shock Sensation," "Terror From Beneath the Earth" is the latest from local B-movie frightmaster Christopher Mihm. In "Terror," atomic testing (natch) is responsible for mutating animals that live in the Wisawa caves, where hero Dr. Vincent Edwards (local actor and celebrated copywriter Mike Cook) has gone investigating after area children have disappeared. Like Mihm's other movies, "Terror" will eschew blood and guts for ridiculous bug-eyed monsters, feature subcommunity theater performances and deliberately laughable dialogue, and entertain 10 times more than whatever crap the studios are foisting upon us. We're just waiting for Mihm to bring us some William Castle-esque gimmicks such as tingling seats and dancing skeletons. (Wed., 7 p.m.)
