The films of Ted V. Mikels all look awesome on paper. There's horror, women-in-prison, girl gangs, revenge stuff and all kinds of exploitation goodness in his filmography. Unfortunately a good majority of the ones I've seen are a bit on the dull side. This one though is probably my favorite of them all. It's the tale of a cat food company who starts using human ingredients in their product. They also luckily have a big meat-grinding machine in the back room that just so happens to fit people in it. What luck! They woulda got away with it too if it didn't start making all the neighborhood cats go crazy for citizens throats. For a film with the title THE CORPSE GRINDERS there really isn't all that much blood but it's still great for it's overabundance of cheesiness. There's a great grave-robber character who conveniently lives right in the graveyard with his wife who's quite a large woman who totes around and talks to a baby doll(this is never addressed or explained). There's the mafia guy from BLACK BELT JONES going around whacking people, a mute one-legged lady who is talked to with the weirdest sign language ever used on film, a strange old Gilligan-looking fellow and all kinds of additional weirdos and silliness. On the sexy side of things there's also our large-breasted leading lady and another gal who strips down to her panties and bra to relax with a nice cold beer and pose for the audience which I thought was very nice.
Finally got a chance to see this on a big screen last night and now I feel my life is closer to being complete.
According to some posters this was released at some point on what had to be an amazing triple bill with THE UNDERTAKER AND HIS PALS and THE EMBALMER.
