Help Ted V. Mikels!


A friend of mine passed along this distrubing article regarding Mr. Mikels. The tough economy has hit us hard and Mikels, one of the great indie mavericks of our time, recently had to give up his studio near the Las Vegas Strip (which I had the pleasure of visiting a few years ago) and is just having a hard time making ends meet.

He is probably most famous for his horror flims The Corpse Grinders, the legendary Astro-Zombies and Blood Orgy of the She Devils but his love of exploitation took viewers all kinds of places. His other classics include The Doll Squad, The Girl in the Gold Boots and a movie I just know Quentin Tarantino got some inspiration from, the classic WIP flick Ten Violent Women.

If you like Ted V. – and let’s face it, we all do – then please pop by his official website and pick up one or two (or three or a dozen) of his movies or some memorabilia.

As I stated earlier, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of visiting Mikels’ old Vegas studio and even got to spend the day with the great man himself. It was such an honor and he was the very definition of a gentleman. Please, if you can spare the change, support one of the last great indie filmmakers.
