The 1967 version was more to it than this one

"the 1967 version was much more gorier than this one , it showed the girl on the fence without boobs and that was for the breast of chicken, the leg of lamb well there was more to it than it is now , all in all the movie has left out a lot of parts since i saw it in 1967 myself.the movie now is just fast and dumb. i have it on vhs and dvd, and neither one of them are like it was in 1967,, but oh well if you want it in your collection i would advise to buy it , for a much cheaper price then most have of course,,good luck and enjoy,,,,,"
When heroin addicts get a camera and a budget

"This is without a doubt the dumbest hour I ever spent, and I loved every minute. Who couldn't love the humble undertaker, he's just trying to make a living and no one wants extras these days. This film works on many levels and has so much social, entertainment, and educational value, I don't know where to begin.Check out the awful sound sinc when the chick fires the gun out the window. She fires twice, then you hear two bangs, THEN she thrusts her hips twice. Classic.The undertaker loses his license plate, gets wounded and is about to be dumped in acid, when suddenly he helps Doc kill Mort in the acid. Did anyone catch this? Why did they do this?How did the undertaker survuve a jump off a six story building and walk away without a scratch?How did the undertaker take a leap at Thursday from two feet away and miss? She didn't even move! What happened to Detective Glass in the end? Thursday ends up with the fat dude?In 1967 gas was $0.32 a gallon? WOW.This film leaves me in awe everytime I watch it. Next time I got a hankerin' for Leg of Lamb, Chicken Breast, or Hambur-Ger, I'm gonna get my butt down to the Greasy Spoon!"
Crazy Creeps Kill And Cook In Kooky Cult Classic!

"THE UNDERTAKER AND HIS PALS is about a trio of bikers (Doc, Spike, and Mort) who live only to find unwary citizens to slaughter in grizzly ways. This is both logical and beneficial to our three fiends, since Doc and Spike add certain severed limbs of their victims to the menu of their diner (The Greasy Spoon), and Mort is a mortician who charges the victims' families big bucks to dispose of the leftovers. Our merry band of psychos have no redeeming qualities whatsoever, but boy are they hilarious! Just check out the "coffin" Mort puts on display for his bargain funeral! Enter detective Harry Glass, inept sleuth with a face that is best described as a James Brolin / Adam West hybrid. His gift seems to be getting beautiful assistants murdered without noticing. For the year it was made, TUAHP is a gorehounds dream. Fortunately, there is so much jet-black humor that the intentionally excessive bloodletting becomes (almost) funny. Highly recommended for adults only..."
IT SHOULD HAVE WON AN OSCAR!

"...Well, this film is FAR FAR from that, but it is entertaining! Way to go to VCI for offering us interesting DVD's for people bored of Hollywood garbage they continue to pump on us. Hey folks, the film is CHEAPO, but it's entertaining...The foot in the meat grinder is pretty grizzly...a very high splatter count! Also this DVD contains the original theatrical trailer (AMAZING!) and some other horror trailers that VCI has their hands on! Grab the credit card, this is a fun disk. The print is so-so, but it's adds to the "feel" of the film man! Pirate copies have floated around years before, but now get a legit one that looks awesome. GRAB IT!!!"
