    The Giant Spider


    This is not a review of The Giant Spider but an informative post about a serious issue with The Movie Database regarding independent movies. I'm putting it here as this is the most popular of Christopher Mihm's movies and so hopefully has the best chance to be seen by like-minded viewers.

    I got an email this morning from The Movie Database informing me that Christopher Mihm's The Phantom Lake Kids in the Beast Walks Among Us had been deleted due…

  • House of Dreams

    House of Dreams

    Back in 2019, I stumbled on House of Dreams while looking for either 1960s regional horror movies, movies made in Indiana, or both.

They did the favor, and the ghosts…

The kind of movie where a possibly unstable writer character is named "Steve King." The kind of movie where the friend of the main character who gives her drugs at a club is named "Molly." The kind of movie where in…

    2025: The World Enslaved by a Virus


    "Communism is all over the place."

    This movie suggests the coronavirus pandemic is a worldwide globalist conspiracy to establish a One World Order where everyone must speak English, and Christianity, ice cream, and funerals are all outlawed. It does this mostly through endless scenes of people sitting around in a big room in a basement and just talking and talking and talking. There are long follow shots of people walking where the camera is set at ass level; after a…
