Since 2006, Minnesota-based filmmaker Christopher R. Mihm has released a new feature-length film every year. Each one is made in an earnest attempt to replicate the look and feel of the 1950s sci-fi/horror films Mihm enjoyed watching as a kid with his father. This year's movie is much darker than any of his previous films, and it comes after his most kid-friendly film yet (2015's "Danny Johnson Saves the World").
"Weresquito: Nazi Hunter" is the story of an American soldier who has returned to the States from Germany after WWII. A horrific Nazi experiment causes him to turn into a man-sized "weresquito" at the sight of blood, and he's on a quest for vengeance against the Nazi scientists who were responsible. Shot as always in "period appropriate" black & white, "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter" is another wonder of low-budget filmmaking. It may not be the best entry point into the "Mihmiverse"the name his fans have given the world of his filmsbut it gives viewers a pretty good idea of what to expect on their adventures there.
