When I was a teenager I had a bootleg VHS copy of his wonderful horror film "The Corpse Grinders". The plot involved a cat food company that ground up dead human bodies into their canned cat food. The cat food company had a strained relationship with a local grave digger who would dig up bodies to sell to them while complaining about his lack of beef jerky and arguing with his nagging wife. Business was booming except that once the cats got a taste for human flesh they then started attacking and trying to eat their owners. I smoked many bowls while this movie over and over again.
Another great film he made is the action film The Doll Squad. I was lucky enough meet Tura Satana and get her autograph on a DVD of this film. The Astro Zombies is another classic that was eventually turned into a Misfits song.
By far though my favorite Ted V Mikels film is Apartheid Slave-Women's Justice. Mikels plays a evil slave owner and when their is a slave uprising all the black female slaves hold court against their wicked master and punish him by walking on him wearing high heel shoes. See Mikels has the unique fetish of getting off on women walking on him wearing high heel shoes. So he made a movie to cater to his peculiar fetish and unleashed this film on the public and (hopefully!!) turned a buck in the process. For this he is my hero.
