The Wild World of Ted V. Mikels
Vampira: The Movie director Kevin Scott Michaels explores the remarkable career of independent cinema pioneer Ted V. Mikels in this documentary that manages to squeeze sixty years of cinematic innovation into one informative and entertaining film. The director of such beloved cult classics as The Astro-Zombies, The Worm Eaters, The Doll Squad, and The Corpse Grinders, Mikels gives his fans a tantalizing glimpse into his tried-and-true filmmaking techniques by demonstrating how to shoot a scene with actresses Masuimi Max and Black Betty, and then inviting the viewer into his studio for a look at his editing facilities. Additional conversations about the film industry, the fine art of showmanship, and his time spent living in an enormous mansion with a small harem of women reveal the true essence of this maverick filmmaker, and interviews with various actors who have worked with Mikels over the years highlight just what a formidable creative force he truly is. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
