The Films of Christopher R. Mihm

The internet is an amazing thing. One day you can just bebop around visiting your normal sites and out of nowhere you discover something you didn't know you were missing in your life. Today that is the home of Sainte Euphoria Pictures. Why is this exciting you may ask?

The Giant Spider poster Saint Euphoria Pictures 2013

The above poster is the latest film from Christopher R. Mihm. Yes, I said latest, as in recently released, as in it's 2013 but oh my look at that gorgeous 1950s era throwback poster! I will forever be in love with horror and sci-fi movies from the 50s/60s drive-in era but I crush extra hard on those featuring living things that are not their normal size.

So you could imagine my excitement, dare I say, giddiness at discovering a brand new giant spider movie. While they could have taken more advantage of modern technology, they went with the ol' green screen and an actual tarantula. It might look a little better than it would have 50+ years ago but it retains part of what endears those older movies to me.

After looking around the site, I find this is the 8th retro-movie that Mr. Mihm has made! I spent some time checking out their trailers for movies like "Cave Women on Mars", "Attack of the Moon Zombies", " House of Ghosts", and "The Monster of Phantom Lake." I knew I was in good company and quickly took advantage of the 4 DVDs for $30 special.

I can't wait to get these and you can bet you'll be hearing more about them after I watch them. Until then, be sure to check out The Films of Christopher R. Mihm at Sainte Euphoria Pictures and enjoy a couple more trailers.

"House of Ghosts" is an homage to one of the kings of B-movies, William Castle.

  1. Oh Dex i can't wait for your reviews on these movies!

  2. This is so exciting! I love this old stuff and I had no idea that anyone was making these kinds of retro-inspired movies now. Mihm has included all the details, like the old fonts, music, wacky robots, and the skeleton. I can definitely see the William Castle influence in that last trailer. "House on Haunted Hill" anyone? :) I'm looking forward to your reviews of these movies.

    1. He just perfectly captured the era in those trailers, I'm very excited to see the actual movies. Have you heard of/seen "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavara"? It's another modern retro movie but done a little more tongue in cheek.

  3. My question to you is: HAVE you gotten a chance to review them yet? I'm excited to hear what you thought!

    1. I wanted to wait until I could dig in to the special features on them but I haven't found the time yet, sadly. I have watched Giant Spider and it was great fun!
