Yeah, I like the old Gravediggers. I'd be glad to see them any time.

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 film is a bit of a classic for Australians, particularly those of us in Sydney who remember the day the biker convoy scene was shot. Though the story is a little dated and corny after all these years, it's worth another look, if only for nostalgia value.
