Bloodthirsty Butchers (1970)

How bad is it? It might be the second-worst Andy Milligan film, which would be anyone else's worst.
Should you see it? No.

This looks like it's from a different film... I need to check.

This is a remake of The Demon Barber of Fleet Street/ Sweeney Todd done by Andy Milligan, so the plot is well-known: a barber and baker kill people and then serve them in meat pies. The actors can't do English accents. It's very badly framed and poorly shot and the funniest thing about it is that it got a Blu-Ray release! The music score is sometimes intrusive, the acting as usual is sub-par (especially in a scene where one guy is secretly tailing another from mere inches away) and the gore effects are extremely cheap. There's a lot of obvious stage blood, a dismembered hand bounces and the best scene involves a pie with a breast in it, which looks like Styrofoam.
