A trio of bikers is killing and dismembering people, preferably young women, and somehow it seems to have something to do with local greedy undertaker Mort (Ray Dannis), and Doc and Spike, the cook and waiter (respectively) of a little diner called the Greasy Spoon - but nobody seems to make the connection yet, not even private detective Harry Glass, who invites his girlfriend and secretary Anne Poultry (yes, Poultry like chicken) to the diner - where she soon enough gets into an argument with waiter Spike ... and this very night she falls victim to the bikers while the next day the diner serves chicken breast and undertaker Mort makes a deal with Harry about her funeral ...

The next day, a blonde, Friday, introduces herself to Harry as his new secretary - but he suggests she has lunch first, and unfortunately she pays a visit to the Greasy Spoon, where Doc, a wannabe surgeon, immediately decides to perform surgery on her - which ends in her death and, after Doc and Spike mince her meat, hamburger as the special of the Greasy Spoon the very next day ...

Eventually, the three bikers, who at this time turn out to be the undertaker, Doc and Spike, go on another raid, but this time the undertaker gets shot at and his bike loses its license plate - which eventually leads to the undertaker and Doc killing Spike in a barrel of acid, though I'm not quite sure why.

Via the licenseplate, Harry Glass is eventually able to figure out who's behind everything, but by now Doc and the undertaker have figured out that Harry is after them and try to strike first - and soon enough, they have Harry's new girlfriend Thursday (yup, the twinsister of Friday) cornered and try to kill her ... when a truck accidently runs down Doc.

The undertaker manages to make an escape, burns down his funeral home and now goes after Thursday. He corners her on the roof of a high rise building, but somehow falls over the edge ... but not to his death, he is somehow able to save himself, and now he follows Thursday to her office and tries to kill her - but is quite accidently killed by a cop who at the time was doing nothing but talking to Thursday while gesturing with a knife ...

 

It has to be noted up front that The Undertaker and his Pals is not a serious film, it's a very macabre and at times even gory (for the mid-1960's that is) comedy and should be seen as such. Of course, it was made on the cheap and is rather trashy and not all that well-written, but it also features many scenes that are as morbid as laugh-inducing, plus some really silly slapstick (including a pie-in-the-face scene). That said the film is far from perfect, it's at times to sloppily made and some of the humour is rather unfunny and childish (in a bad way) - but in all it makes a good party movie that is best consumed with a few beers.
