I'm afraid that I must disagree with the negative reviews. I have been watching black and white sci-fi movies for half a century now, and Christopher Mihm has managed to bridge a gap between homage and parody. The homage hearkens back to films like Monster On The Campus, which was a classic of 50s white-suburban myopia. The parody exists not as an insult, or heavy-handed snobbery, but as aknowledgement to the cultural ignorance of the time period. To be able to jab at the blind sexism of the period, without being obviously preachy, is a gift. As always, the familiar faces of the stock-players conveys a sense of familial-closeness. Theres a real feeling of a community that has a love for an artistic vision. Like the film Rat Pfink a Boo-boo. This film has warmth and heart. And manages to use a limited budget in a clever way, by mirroring low budget films of the mid 20th century.
When i think of all the overblown 3-headed shark movies that are produced currently, i have to almost think that we as a nation have lost the ability to enjoy fun movies, unless we do so ironically. But theres no irony in the Mihm flicks. Just good-natured fun.
