Minnesota filmmaker's 'Giant Spider' draws in fans from across country


A Minneapolis filmmaker is attracting attention from across the country with his new horror film, KSTP-TV reports.

Christopher Mihm recently hosted fans from Boston and California for the premiere and a podcast celebrating the release of "The Giant Spider."

"It's hard to describe how cool it is," Mihm told KSTP. "For the lack of a better word, it's just awesome."

"The Giant Spider" -- Mihm's eighth film -- premiered in Minnesota and Wisconsin last week.

A black-white tale reminiscent of the horror movies of the 1950s, "The Giant Spider" follows a trio of scientists and a newspaper reporter as they try to save the world after radiation left behind by atomic weapons testing creates a gigantic killer mutant arachnid.

Mihm's podcasts are released monthly on his website, SaintEuphoria.com.
