Trivia: The only truly wholesome film credit for TED MIKELS is cinematographer for 1967's 204-CATALINA CAPER. Prior to that film, he was the assistant director for Ed Wood's amazingly awful Orgy of the Dead. Sporting a wild moustache and functioning also as producer, director and screenwriter, Mikels was perhaps the originator of the sex-and-gore film genre, most notably with these films: 1969's Astro-Zombies; 1972's Blood Orgy of the She Devils and The Corpse Grinders; 1973's The Doll Squad; 1977's The Worm Eaters; 1982's 10 Violent Women; 1984's Operation Overkill; and 1987's War Cat. To no one's surprise...Mikels is pals with another sex-and-gore filmmaker, RAY DENNIS STECKLER (see 812-INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES).

It's hard to believe, but MARK HERRON, the actor who played that slimy Leo McCabe, had a brief and stormy marriage to the the legendary Judy Garland. Herron's only other movie credit is a small role in Federico Fellini's 8 1/2.

Bongo player PRESTON EPPS may not have been in any other movies, but he did record four albums: 1959's "Bongo Rock" (the title single made it into Billboard's Top 40); 1960's "Bongo Bongo Bongo"; 1961's "Bongola"; and 1962's "Surfin' Bongos."
