Trivia

Produced in 1973 by Lawrence Zazelenchuk, who owned "The 69 Drive-In" on Rt. 69 outside of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. He had saved $36,000 from working at a nickel mine and decided to write and produce a horror film to screen at his own drive-in. Director Donald R. Passmore was hired, then fired after four days and replaced by Klaus Vetter. Once finished, Zazalenchuk found he could not afford the lab costs to have the film developed, but finally saved enough in drive-in proceeds to get it processed. It premiered at "The 69 Drive-In" in 1974 and went on to a long local run before it was bought by a New York distributor in the market for a tax write-off. See more »

Funeral coach driver.

Lawrence Zazelenchuk was an owner of drive-in on Route 69,just outside of Sudbury.With the budget of $36 000 he made "Corpse Eaters"-the first Canadian gore film about zombies emerging from a ghastly crypt filled with coffins and bones.He wanted to have a horror film of his own to play in his cinema."Corpse Eaters" is loaded with grisly over-the-top gore and violence.The graveyard and crypt are downright creepy and the zombies look very Fulciesque.The plot is cheesy and it often jumps all over the place beginning with the morgue attendants,then to our sex crazed and beer starved quartet,who unleash the living dead to the hospital and back to the morgue again.If you like zombie movies or Herschell Gordon Lewis gorefests give "Corpse Eaters" a chance.7 out of 10.
