The Astro-Zombies, aka Space Zombies aka The Space Vampires, is a 1969 science fiction horror film starring John Carradine, Wendell Corey (in his final film appearance), and Tura Satana. It was written, directed, and produced by Ted V. Mikels. The plot follows a disgruntled scientist who, having been fired by the space agency, decides to create superhuman monsters from the body parts of innocent murder victims. The creatures eventually escape and go on a killing spree, attracting the attention of both an international spy ring and the CIA.

The low budget movie has gained cult status along with many of Ted V. Mikels other works, inspiring him to write and direct a sequel. Mark of the Astro-Zombies was released direct-to-video in 2002 with Tura Satana reprising her role of Satana from the original film.

During a showing of the film on KTVU's Creature Features, it was noted that much of the film was shot on property owned by actor Wayne Rogers.

American horror punk band The Misfits recorded a song entitled "Astro Zombies", which was written by then-vocalist Glenn Danzig and released on their first full-length album, 1982's "Walk Among Us".
