"Attack Of The Moon Zombies" is here....

...just in time for the long weekend.

For those of you who are fans of of Drive-In B-Movies from the 50s (and homages thereof), we have Attack Of The Moon Zombies. This is the latest film by Christopher Mihm, all of which are set in the same growing universe.

The films are quite humorous, but not in the same way as, say, Larry Blamire's movies, like Lost Skeleton Of Cadavra. Most retro pastiches go heavy on the parody, but Mihm plays it mostly straight; if you came across any of these movies on TV, it would take you a few minutes to realize you're not watching a genuine old flick. And, best, he treats his characters with respect; there's an emotional investment that is genuine and gives the audience something to care about beyond a simple homage.

Anyway, my copy of Moon Zombies just came today, so I haven't seen it yet, but I'll be getting to it soonest.
