The Corpse Grinders (1972)


I have a near-limitless patience for trash, and a willing love of watching films that fall firmly in the ‘so-bad-it’s-good’ category, and truth be told the premise and budget of The Corpse Grinders holds promise for such qualities: made on just $47,000, it tells the story of a cat food company, who decide to use humans for their produce. The neighbourhood cats then gain a taste for human flesh, attacking and killing humans, leading an inquisitive doctor onto the investigative trail. Sound amazing right? Unfortunately, there is little gore and even less interest. The film is just competently made enough that it’s not laugh-out-loud bad, but it’s also brain-gnawingly, tedium-migraine-inducingly boring, like terrible wallpaper, consisting of little more than characters explaining the plot to each other. Avoid like bad cat food.
