Interview with Ted V. Mikels

Ted V. Mikels is an American auteur, a filmmaker who produces, writes, directs and even stars in his own films. Best know for The Corpse Grinders and The Astro-Zombies, one of the all-too-few films to star the marvelous Tura Satana, Mikels has long been an inspiration to independent filmmmakers. Mikels spoke with author Matt Sanborn for Mystic Skull about current and past projects:

Well, sixty years ago, I spent ten years making about ten movies for no-one to see but myself. Like Fool’s Prosperity, Compelled, A Tall Tale, Yellow Roses, Dream Man, The Black Sheep, etc. I felt I needed to make these movies to be used as my self-teaching tools, BEFORE I made my first movie for the world to see. Years later, I felt ready to offer my first theatrical feature Strike Me Deadly, which movie started several actors on their movie careers (Janine Riley from Petticoat Junction, etc.) and enjoyed theatrical, international, and television release.

Then seven years after that, and several theatrical movies I created, all 35mm, I made The Astro Zombies. Needless to say, absolutely EVERY movie you make leaves you with new experiences to utilize in your "next" movie. The procedure NEVER STOPS, you always learn.
