This movie's original theatrical cut ran 132 minutes. Reportedly, director Sandy Harbutt was relatively unhappy with this version. During the 1980s, when the movie was optioned for home 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. The Australian DVD releases also run at this shorter hour-and-a-half length. Harbutt has said of the half-hour shorter version, the only one available on video: "I just look at the picture as it is and as it was and as far as I'm concerned, the picture should be as it is. That's what I want the world to see". See more »
Yeah, I like the old Gravediggers. I'd be glad to see them any time.

Yes, it's very, very silly and 70s-ish. None of the characters are likeable. But, apart from the scenery and cinematography, it still has an endearing quality; it seems like the film-makers and actors were really trying to be genuine and sincere. That's what makes it such a re-watchable film.
