Ted V. Mikels Movie Premiere at The Palms Brendan Theater

You may know local horror movie director Ted V. Mikels from some of his earlier B-Horror films, including Astro Zombies, The Corpse Grinders, Girl in Gold Boots, etc. If you were at the Palms' Brendan Theaters, March 21st, you could have caught his latest flick, "The Cauldron: Baptism of Blood." This latest movie's premise is based on a talent competition that goes awry when one of the contestants receives a "lucky" amulet that helps her win the contest. She doesn't realize the price she will have to pay. The cast features a bevy of beautiful women, masked men, and lots of blood and sacrifice.

After the premiere, Ted answered some questions. Also, there was Amy Carelli, ex-Jupiter Shifter bassist, playing the blood soaked witch, local Sin City Grind Kitten Elaine Kimberlain, who also did makeup for the film, Mike Monohan, who worked on production of the film, and in attendance local horror film maker Greg Parker (Lord of the Dead) who is working on his next film "Samurai Terror."

Mr. Mikels has merchandise available, everything from DVDs, VHS, posters, and t-shirts. E-mail him at TMVstudios@aol.com or check the website.
