Members of the Grave Diggers Motorcycle Club are being knocked off one by one, and someone needs to find out why! Sandy Harbutts timeless Australian cult film about a bunch of regegades riding Kawasaki 900s.Written by

The Grave Diggers motorcycle gang are so-called in the movie because the group comprises ex-military (known colloquially in Australia as "diggers") from the Vietnam and Korea wars. See more »

Director Sandy Harbutt's original theatrical cut ran 132 minutes, but it is reported that he was relatively unhappy with this version. When optioned for video release by Roadshow Home Video (a division of Roadshow Film Distributors) Harbutt requested that he be able to re-cut his film so that it reflected his original vision. The original Australian video release (circa 1985) runs 98 minutes and carries a "Director Approved" message coupled with Harbutt's signature. It is this significantly shorter "Director's Cut", inclusive of Premium Film's 1995 21st Anniversary re-release, that has replaced all previous versions of the film. See more »
This movie did become something of a cult classic in the 70's, unlike a lot of people passing comment, I remember it well. Just to clarify something one of your other members had stated.....bikers did like the movie with cinemas in all capital cities being swamped by bikers. I was in Adelaide at the time and clearly recall Rundle Street, before it became a mall, with bikes on both sides of the street from King William Street to Pulteney(?). Some things fade over time, maybe the movie will be one of them but it brings back fond memories of my youth, mispent that it was.
