RIP TED V. MIKELS 1929-2016

The low budget film world has lost a true giant.

Ted V. Mikels the man who brought us great films such as "Girl In Gold Boots", "The Corpse Grinders" and "The Astro Zombies" has died at the age of 87.

Mikels had a very long and varied career which most people were not aware of until the wonderful documentary on his life appeared on "The Incredibly Strange Film Show" back in the 90's.

His film career started in 1963 with the film "Strike Me Deadly" which he produced. He went on to make many, many low budget films and most of them are loved by "Monster Kids" everywhere.

I have seen every one of these little gems and Ted had a way of making them all entertaining. A unique man with a very unique life has left us.

Ted will be missed by all film fans but he has left a great legacy of films behind for us to enjoy. RIP Ted.
