While I personally love modern horror films and all of their deliciously gory bells and whistles, my heart belongs to the old black and white horror/sci-fi flicks of the 50s and 60s. If you’re in the same camp as I am, you’d better listen up.
Below you’ll find the first official trailer and artwork for writer/director Christopher R. Mihm’s new tale of old terrors, The Late Night Double Feature… a 2-in-1 film if you will.
Shane Donahue, Cherie “Rhuby” Gallinati, Mark Haider, Elizabeth Kaiser, Michael Kaiser, Stephanie Mihm, Daniel R. Sjerven, J. Andrew Wilkins, Mike Cook, Catherine Hansen, Alice Mihm, Daniel Mihm, Elliott Mihm, James Norgard, and Douglas Sidney star.
The Late Night Double Feature was written, directed, and edited by Christopher R. Mihm with stop-motion animation by Norman Yeend. Monster costume and special effects makeup are by Mitch Gonzales with electronic tonalities by Peter K. Flynn.
The Late Night Double Feature will hold its world premiere on Saturday, April 26th, in Minneapolis, MN. Advance tickets are now available here!
A double bill of 1950s-style B-movie shorts from writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, the king of “new old, good bad” movies!
“X: The Fiend from Beyond Space”
On a decades-long mission to Alpha Centauri, the crew of the UESPA spaceship Endeavor are awakened from LD-sleep to find themselves in orbit around a rogue planet. Finding nothing but a seemingly dead alien on the planet’s surface, the Captain decides to bring it aboard for further study. But the crew quickly realize the creature is not dead… and it’s very hungry.
“The Wall People”
Following the death of his wife, scientist Barney Collins (Douglas Sidney) finds solace in his new role as a single dad to his only son. However, when the boy disappears from his bed under mysterious circumstances, Barney loses his grip on reality and becomes a shut-in. Eight years later, he resurfaces with a wild theory: His son has been taken by an otherworldly entity that steals sleeping children through interdimensional portals in their bedroom walls! He enlists the help of his old colleagues (Mike Cook and James Norgard, reprising their roles as Dr. Edwards and Dr. Gabriel, respectively) to potentially save his son from the clutches of this inhuman threat—or prove he is certifiably insane!
