I Bury the Living
1958
Directed by Albert Band

Mild spoilers here . . . no living people are at any point in this film buried.

Whenever newly appointed cemetery committee chairman (this is apparently an actual job) Kraft places a black pin into a map of the cemetery, the person to whom that plot of land dies. Is it supernatural? Or is it murder? The opening titles would say outright that it’s one, while the ending says the other. Who are we to know?

Only one spooky pumpkin out of five.

The Undertaker and His Pals
1966
Directed by TLP Swicegood

This movie was so obscure I cannot find information on it from Wikipedia!

Fortunately, IMDB informs me that the tagline for the movie is: “A macabre story of two motorcycle-riding, knife-wielding, shiv-shaving, eye-gouging, arm-twisting, chain-lashing, scalpel-flashing, acid-throwing, gun-shooting, bone-breaking, pathological nuts and their pal the UNDERTAKER…”

Sounds like any Saturday night to me . . .

The film opens with our maniacs killing a girl named Sally Lamb and stealing her legs. Later, our protagonist is eating at a restaurant where the special is “Leg of Lamb”.

You can see where this is going.

The maniacs get really excited when they find out the detective’s secretary’s last name is Poultry.

You can see where this is going.

She becomes “Breast of Chicken”, by the way.

What a ridiculous movie! I wish I’d had company while watching it. If so, that might have improved the rating.

Two spooky pumpkins out of five, for sheer ridiculousness.
