Well, I was certainly not disappointed in Moon Zombies. It was as good and entertaining as I anticipated. The casting is great-- Mihm seems to have a knack for that. Mike Cook is as classic a character actor as anyone could hope to find and the rest of the cast is wonderful to watch as well, especially Shannon McDonough and Sid Korpi.
As I noted above, Mihm brings real Human pathos and feeling to the wonderful campiness and cheese of the B-Movie universe. I wish that Sciffy would show these movies and bring them to a wider audience.
Cheese? What cheese? I don't know what you could possibly be referring to. There's no cheese in Mihm's movies.
Ok, maybe a tiny little bit of cheddar, but that's all.
I'm glad you liked it. I was at the premiere on Wednesday (haven't missed one yet, this was the fourth one for me), and it was completely sold out.
I'm glad you pointed out how great Sid is. She's remarkable, and ... Ok, I'm sorry, but it takes one hell of an actor to pull off the line "All-out space plant zombie attack" and keep a straight face. That line got massive applause.
Now, for those who aren't familiar with the Moon Zombies movie, here's a little info ...
It's the 70s. The President (Jackson, from the previous movies) has a scientific moonbase named after him. The station is full of doctors, including Dr. Vincent Edwards, who is only a few days from retirement.
His replacement, who is the son of a man he once knew back on Earth, is every bit as brilliant, and finds a strange plant in a cave not far from the base.
The plant seems to kill people ... only, they don't stay dead. They become ... moon zombies.
As with all of Mihm's movies, it's an homage to B-movies from the 50s, and is probably his best movie so far.
Sid previously appeared as one of Adam's people in Destination: Outer Space. Here, she plays the station's Administrator.
Shannon previously played Julie Ann St. Marie Jackson. Here, she plays a new character, and she goes platinum blond.
Mike Cook has appeared in every film except Cave Women, though as different characters. He is the most well-known actor, having appeared in series such as Prison Break, and movies such as Fred Claus.
The movies are designed so that they can be watched separately and enjoyed without needing to have knowledge of the others.
