Directing Movies, Vol. 1: From Action to Wrap 2004 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
In the summer of 1987 I had the misfortune of staying at Ted Mikels house for a few days. My now deceased step-father, who was a nice guy but also a complete fool, had moved to Las Vegas and was living with Mikels, hoping to use this association to get into the film business. My step-father was just one of several hangers-on that Mikels surrounded himself with, apparently as a means to serve his absurdly inflated ego. I stopped over for a few days while on my way to California and it was perhaps the weirdest experience of a life. Mikel’s home was like a bizarre “mini-castle”, decorated with an armored knight statue and a skeleton sitting on a throne. Mikels walked around in gold sequin underwear barking orders at everyone in sight. I told my step-father he was an idiot for associating with this guy and left the house as soon as possible.
This product really offers nothing in terms of film making. Instead it’s just a “vanity project” for Mikels to ramble on about his bottom of barrel exploitation films from the 60’s and 70’s. He chats with two hangers-on and then shows trailers for his various trashy flicks such as “Astro Zombies” and “Corpse Grinders”. This is a complete waste of time and money, just another attempt to exploit the public by this low life, sorry excuse for a human being.
