Human bodies are fed into a bone crunching meat grinder, mashed into a bloody pulp, poured into cans and shipped out to market as Lotus Cat Food. Unsuspecting pet owners are being attacked and killed by felines driven into blood lust by their newly acquired taste for human flesh. The corpse-grinding cat food moguls have been running low on dead bodies and are on the lookout for fresh meat. Enter Angie, a nubile young nurse whose cat is acting up after eating out of Lotus cans. Angie comes to the factory looking for answers and is abruptly taken to the blood-soaked conveyor belt that feeds the insatiable grinder. A low budget shocker in the vein of Blood Feast (1963), The Corpse Grinders (1971) has become a perennial cult favorite. Eccentric producer, director, writer and editor, Ted V. Mikels, revisited the bloody cat food cannery in his long-awaited sequel, The Corpse Grinders II (2000).
