Eyeball Treat: The Undertaker and His Pals (1966)
First Time View? Nuh-uh.
The Meat of It: Delicious name = delicious death.
Here are five things I love about The Undertaker and His Pals:
1. The mesmerizing skills of these fiends on wheels:
I know. It's almost too much excitement for one scene.
2. Skateboard hijinks:
Precisely what every horror film needs.
3. This interesting technique for securing employment:
I've been doing it wrong all these years.
4. Sexy Organ Fondling:
Good times, good times.
5. 60's babes:
The Undertaker and His Pals was another movie that I group-watched with those awesome folks over at Halloween Horror Club. It was hosted by M.C. O'Neill who rather accurately described this flick as "Fellini-meets-HG Lewis". The music is strange. The jokes are hammy. There's even actual sad-trombone usage. It's a cheesy, cartoony, vaudevillian good time! And since all that is available is the cut version it doesn't overstay its welcome with its brief 63 minute runtime. So if you're in the mood for something silly, perhaps give The Undertaker and His Pals a watch!
Until next time...
