‘Corpse Eaters‘ is an almost forgotten horror film that was produced by Lawrence Zazelenchuk, and directed by Donald R. Passmore and Klaus Vetter.
The genesis of this film is a true underdog story – Zazelenchuk, owned and ran a drive-in movie theater and wanted to be able to show a a genuine horror-film that would shock his viewers.
He saved up a small budget from his wages and hired Donald R. Passmore to bring his vision to the big-screen. Passmore was fired after only a few days and was replaced by Vetter.
After many more financial ups and downs, Zazelenchuk finally got to show his film at his own drive-in movie theatre called the “The 69 Drive-In”
It met with moderate success, and has since become very hard to track down.
