The Late Night Double Feature
The debut of writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's ode to the drive-in double features of yesteryear will take place on Saturday, April 26th (a full month earlier than usual) at the historic Heights Theatre on the outskirts of Minneapolis, MN. Doors will open at 6:30 PM with the movie starting at or around 7:30.

In addition to the main attraction, attendees will enjoy a program complete with hand-picked, era-appropriate newsreels, classic trailers, appearances by most (if not all) of the cast and crew, autographs, free cupcakes, photo opportunities with monsters from the film (don't forget your camera!), a silent auction and organ music from the "WCCO Mighty Wurlitzer!" DVDs, posters and other exclusive merchandise will also be on sale!

NOTE: All advance ticket holders will receive an individually numbered collector's ticket which will be mailed within the first two weeks of April! All attendees must present their collector's ticket(s) at the door to be admitted into the event.

Because the premiere will be held on a Saturday, we will be holding a special "first time ever" pre-party the night before—an event we are playfully calling "The Night Before The Thing!"

Limited to 40 lucky guests, the pre-party will take place on Friday, April 25th from 6:00PM to 10:00 at the LivINN Hotel in Fridley, MN (only two miles north of the Heights Theatre).

The night will include dinner provided by Uncle John's Burger Dog, a panel discussion/live podcast recording with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm and the Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast crew, appearances by several familiar Mihmiverse faces, AND top secret entertainment and shenanigans you will NOT want to miss!

ALSO, all pre-party attendees may pre-order a limited-edition, collectible T-shirt that will ONLY be available at the event (the exact design will be revealed at a later date)! You MUST pre-order a T-shirt to receive one, but it is NOT required to attend! Upon receipt of your shirt payment, we will contact you regarding size(s)!

Coming from out of town and need a place to stay? The Mihmiverse has teamed up with the LivINN Hotel in Fridley, MN to offer a special deal on accommodations: $75.00 per night—or upgrade to one of their suites for just $10 more!

Located just two miles north of the Heights Theatre, the LivINN Hotel is part of what's known as the "Best Value" Hotel Chain for lodging accommodations in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, providing quality guest rooms and suites. The LivINN is ALSO the location where the premiere pre-party will take place!

To take advantage of this special offer, reserve your room(s) by phone and ask to be added to the "Saint Euphoria LLC" block of rooms!

Check out the LivINN's website at for more information about this great hotel!

IMPORTANT! Interest in these events is EXTREMELY HIGH! Because of this, we cannot guarantee the availability of "day-of" admission tickets. If either event sells out through advance sales, there will be no tickets available at the door. To put this into some perspective, last year's premiere of "The Giant Spider" sold out within 17 days!

These events are open to the public, so the ONLY WAY to ensure admittance to either event is to purchase an advance ticket!

The latest episode of the Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast is now available for download!

On a blisteringly cold winter day, the main Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast crew found themselves together and ready to record the best podcast they've ever recorded! A full twenty minutes later... everything fell apart as illness struck one of the hosts and Hater was called away on "business."

In place of the "greatest-podcast-ever-recorded," this month's episode turned into the first-ever Mihmiverse Bonfire Podcast clip show, covering every episode released in 2013. All audio clips were pulled from the 37-minute mark of the second file (or first, if only one existed) for each month. The final result is magically odd and highly entertaining.

The Saga of the Viking Women and their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent (1957)
Directed by Roger Corman
Starring Abby Dalton, Susan Cabot, and June Kenney

Better known by it's shortened (and infinitely easier to remember) title, "Viking Women and the Sea Serpent," this is a great example of what Roger Corman was best at: making classic Z-grade movies that are so bad they become transcendent in their awesomeness! The movie follows a band of models in short skirted Viking costumes whose men have disappeared somewhere across the sea. Being hearty Viking women, they decide that sitting around and waiting is out of the question and instead, load up their own longship and set out to find their men. Not surprisingly—since it's pretty much given away by the title—they tangle with a terrible special effect sea serpent and, barely escaping with their lives, eventually end up in an exotic land inhabited by barbarians and ruled by an iron-fisted despot and his wimpy (and mildly offensive by today's standards) son. Will the Viking women find their men? Will they survive their encounter with the uncivilized horde? Will the one dark-haired (and, naturally, evil and untrustworthy) warrior woman find a way to destroy her golden-haired rival and thus claim her rival's "betrothed" for herself? Does it really matter when you're treated to such terrible dialog, surprisingly intense violence for the era in which the film was made, atrocious special effects, sub-par acting, and enough beef and cheesecake to feed an army? The answer is a firm and definite "no." If you really enjoy classic low-budget "drive-in cinema," you need to find a copy of this movie RIGHT NOW. You will NOT be sorry!

Since so many fans and supporters have become Mihmiverse contributors, we wanted to take time to highlight some of these wonderful people! Thus, every month between now and the release of "The Late Night Double Feature," we will randomly choose and interview one of them.

This month, we interview Mitch Obrecht (pictured standing behind past contributor Dakota Hardisty, Terry "Davros" Molloy and Michael "The Valeyard" Jayston)!

Introduce yourself to the Mihmiverse!

Well howdy, folks. I'm Mitch Obrecht, the King of the Superfans! (Where's my crown, Mihm?) I'm a fan of all good, and cheesy, science fiction. But then, aren't we all?

When and how did you discover the films of Christopher R. Mihm?

I was introduced to the Mihmiverse purely by accident. I went to a local film festival to see a movie that had been shot here in Omaha. It was called the Big Damn Film Fest, and it was organized by our own Christopher R. Mihm. He had been pimping his film, this "Monster of the Black Lagoon" or something like that all day long. And then I saw it. I was one of about eight people in the room, and the only one laughing at the funniest bits. It's like that line from "Doctor Who:" "Some people just can't handle it. And some people can." That's me. That's us. We're all part of the Mihmiverse now.

Which of the eight released films is your favorite and why?

It used to be "The Monster of Phantom Lake." Then it was "Terror from Beneath the Earth" (Ddid you SEE those end credits?!), and "Destination: Outer Space" will always hold a place in my heart. But I think "The Giant Spider" is his best work to date. As with all of the films, it ties into the bigger picture, but it is the most self-contained, and easiest for newbies to get into. The effects are easily the most advanced to date, and he's grown so much as a director. It also gives us the return of the Canoe Corps. The spider itself is possibly the scariest non-Kaiser monster yet, and I kind of want it to start eating people I don't like. Plus, the husband and wife/goat scene is the most hysterical scene in the first eight movies. What's not to love?

Why did you contribute to the next Mihmiverse film, "The Late Night Double Feature?"

That's the easiest question of all. I'm greedy. Don't give me that look. It's true. I want more films in this 'verse, and the best way to make sure that happens is to contribute. I may not be able to be in Minneapolis to make props or decorate sets, but it's still a way I can be part of the story.

Interested in becoming a contributor and seeing your name in the credits of "The Late Night Double Feature?" All contributors will get their name listed in the end credits of "The Late Night Double Feature," a ticket to the premiere, a copy of the film on DVD, and a frame-able certificate with their name and title—perfect for your own "wall of fame!"

Visit the contributor page at, the online home of the films of Christopher R. Mihm, for more information. Who knows? Maybe next month we'll be interviewing YOU!


Name the comedy horror or sci-fi film:

1. (1948) Lon Chaney Jr. warns baggage handlers Bud and Lou about a mysterious shipment to the McDougal House of Horrors. Hilarity ensues.

2. (1959) Larry, Moe and Curly Joe fly to Venus. Hilarity ensues.

3. (1963) Roger Corman directs this parody mash-up of horror, spy and gangster films set in Cuba. Hilarity ensues.

4. (1963) Jerry Lewis parodies Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde. Hilarity ensues.

5. (1963) An all-star cast (Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Basil Rathbone and Peter Lorre) appear in a film about an undertaker and his assistant who have a habit of reusing the coffins of their clients. Hilarity ensues.

In celebration of the Lunar New Year, the Year of the Horse, we present the following receipe for a satisfyingly sweet street food from Korea. The first time I tried one of these tasty treats was at an open market in Seoul, South Korea. They were so delicious I had to buy two more! They are best enjoyed during the winter months and served warm.

Sweet Cinnamon Pancakes (Hotteok)

  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp dried yeast
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp. peanuts (crushed)
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
1. Pour 1/2 cup lukewarm water into a bowl and stir in sugar. Sprinkle in the yeast and let stand without stirring for 5 minutes.

2. Sift the plain and rice flour together into mixing bowl. Add salt, yeast mixture, and milk. Mix into a firm dough and knead this thoroughly on a lightly floured surface until it becomes smooth and elastic.

3. Put the dough back into the bowl, cover with a dish towel and leave at room temperature for 3 hours, until it has risen double in size.

4. To make the filling, grind the peanuts finely in a food processor and then mix them with the sugars and cinnamon.

5. Sprinkle a plate with a little flour. Divide the dough into twelve portions. Flatten one piece on your hand, then make a depression in the center with one finger. Place 2 tbsp. of filling on the middle of the dough and wrap the edges around to enclose the filling completely, shaping the dough back into a ball. Place on the plate. Repeat.

6. Pour a little vegetable oil into a frying pan and heat over medium heat. Add a ball of dough and press it down with the back of a wooden spoon to flatten it into a round pancake. You can prepare three to four at once depending on the size of your pan. Fry on both sides until golden brown. Best served warm.

Makes 12 servings

We like to serve these as a dessert when we have Korean food or as a breakfast treat on a cold Minnesota morning. They are delicious. You DO NOT need syrupjust eat as is. The sweetness is on the inside.

My loving monsters give this little delight 5 out of 5 "Dr. Edwards' reading glasses." ENJOY!
