Just when you think it couldn't get any worse...
15 August 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ted V. Mikels is the director who made a career of making non-movies, no budget exploitation flicks where the titles were usually better than the productions themselves. THE CORPSE GRINDERS was one of his most infamous pictures, about an unscrupulous cat food company using stolen corpses as an ingredient for cat food, thus causing cats to rise up and chow down on their owners.

In the 2000s, people suddenly remembered Mikels's output and decided to make various sequels, spin-offs and remakes of his work. It didn't help that an aged Mikels was still knocking about and still bitten by the film-making bug. If anything these new films were even worse than the (terrible) originals, worse than Troma movies, and THE CORPSE GRINDERS 3 is such a film. I haven't had the (dis)pleasure of watching part two, but this third instalment is so awful that I'm in no rush to do so. Mikels didn't actually direct this one, but he does produce and clearly influenced the proceedings in a big way.

THE CORPSE GRINDERS 3 is basically a remake of the first film, except with an added focus on comedy. The cat food business owners are now a bunch of Italians and most of their scenes are apparently played for laughs, but you can only tell this by the overacting of the protagonists because it certainly isn't funny. None of it is; this is excruciatingly awful, an embarrassment to sit through, and incredibly a sequel that makes the original actually look good.
