I was almost going to totally write off Ted V. Mikels as one of the most talentless and boring directors of all time after watching his tedious turkeys 'Blood Orgy Of The She Devils' and 'The Doll Squad'. But after watching 'The Corpse Grinders' I'm now not so sure. This is arguably his best known movie, and the thing is it's actually quite good! Not "great" or "hilarious fun" mind you, but "quite good", and for him, that's high praise indeed. It's cheap, tacky and amateurishly acted, but strangely entertaining just the same. A doctor and his nurse girlfriend (Sean Kenney and Monika Kelly) investigate a spate of cat attacks (!) which they suspect has something to do with gourmet cat food. And it does, but in not exactly the most obvious way. This is a very stupid movie but surprisingly enjoyable, especially when you see that it was co-written by Arch Hall Jr, of 'Eegah' infamy! The best parts for me are the cat attacks, which have to be seen to be believed, and the oddball bodysnatchers played by Warren Ball (Caleb) and Ann Noble (Cleo), who are both wacky and creepy. I can't hardly believe I'm typing this, but I actually LIKED 'The Corpse Grinders', and I recommend it to trash lovers, especially fans of (early) Roger Corman and Herschell Gordon Lewis.
