It's amazing that the bloodiest/goriest movies of the 1960's were mainly all comedies. This one is totally comedic including a pie-in-the-face gag, silly sound fx, bad puns and lots of dumb jokes. At the same time it 's almost as gory as your typical HG Lewis flick from the same time period with a woman being beaten to death with chains, rampant cannibalism and dismemberment. Also some real surgery scenes are thrown in for good measure. Apparently it was even gorier when originally released but folks couldn't handle that kinda stuff back in the 60's so all that exists now is this edited version. Which would explain it's short(63 minutes) run-time. It's still a pretty great watch and a completely ridiculous groundbreaking film. As a bonus you also get a rockin'/jazzy soundtrack! Why this isn't shown at every theater in the U.S. as the perfect midnight movie I'm not sure.
Not sure if I've ever seen THE EMBALMER but just for the first two flicks this woulda been a great night of entertainment!!:
