It's a Step Up from the Second Film

The Corpse Grinders 3 (2012)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

The third film in the series has Lotus Cat Food being controlled by a new manager but the same recipe is being used. Once again people are grinded into cat food but after eating it the cats begin to crave humans.

THE CORPSE GRINDERS 3 is the first in the series not to be directed by Ted V. Mikels but he does serve as the producer here. Director and co-writer Manolito Motosierra adds a few good touches throughout the film but there's still no question that this is another ultra low-budget feature with a familiar theme to the original. At the very least Motosierra made this one here a lot more entertaining than the second entry in the series.

There's certainly nothing ground-breaking going on here but there are some fun moments to be had here. I would argue that the performances are at least fun as the actors appear to be having a good time and they at least bring some energy to the picture. There are also a few funny moments including one where a (fake) cat gets tossed around before being thrown into a microwave. I'd even argue that the laid back and more comic approach made for a more entertaining picture.

With that said, the film still drags a bit even at just 80-minutes and I'd add that there really just isn't much or enough of a story to really keep you entertained the entire time. Still, THE CORPSE GRINDERS 3 isn't the worst film out there. Heck, it's not even the worst of the series.
