Last year OSFest introduced the Omaha community to the films of Christopher Mihm, with The Monster of Phantom Lake, It Came From Another World, and Cave Women on Mars. This year we are proud to bring you his latest film; Terror From Beneath The Earth.
While exploring the Wisawa cave system, Dr. Vincent Edwards and Rosemary Bennett uncover evidence in the missing person’s case of small-town farmer, Stan Johnson’s children. Not realizing the caves are inhabited by a strange mutated creature, the result of years of underground atomic testing, they report their finding to the local sheriff. Returning with a rescue mission Dr. Edwards, Rosemary, the sheriff, and Mr. Johnson. Little do they realize the terrors that await them beneath the Earth. The Omaha premiere showing will Saturday night after the Masquerade.
On Friday night we will be offering the Omaha premiere screening of Visioneers. This is the directorial debut by Jared Drake and stars Zach Galifianakis, with Judy Greer, Missi Pyle, and James LeGros in supporting roles. It is a near future story about an increasing number of cases of spontaneous human combustion and the fears of one man (Zach Galifianakis) as he believes his time is approaching. This film features music by Tim DeLaughter of the Polyphonic Spree.
OSFest will not be sponsoring a video room this year so our staff can spend more time contacting distributors to get some really neat stuff for next year. Though I understand an Anime Addict will be getting a hotel room during the convention to screen some really good stuff.
Finally I am pleased to announce that The Godfather will be attending OSFest Saturday afternoon and evening. He has even agreed to settle the dispute regarding which costume is the best to grace our stage during our annual Masquerade Contest. Come and have your picture taken with The Godfather who I’m sure will have a mob of henchR-2s at his beck and call.

In the words of The Godfather; "Do it!"
