Bad Taste back to product details

i could have sworn the original cover had a middle finger
written by ALoughnane September 22, 2006 - 9:10 PM PDT
am i wrong, or did the original cover contain the same wouldbe alien shooting the bird? i think it did, and can only recommend this flick because there's a scene where a guy's brains come out, but then he puts them back in and flaps a part of his skull back and maybe even straps it together. been a long time since i saw it, and certainly won't watch it again, but still recommend it as a "stoner classic" if nothing else. hell, i don't even smoke pot any more, so it's gotta be worth somethin' if i'm cornering it as a drug cult classic, no? would somebody please tell me about that, er those, fingers in the interim? overall: worthy of an old "grade D" scholarship by the gates foundation...

Peter Jackson sure has improved!

Good film for the laughs and gore. Nothing like BRAINDEAD (DEAD-ALIVE) and a far cy from his legendary Tolkien films. Highly recommend this movie for purist and people who get into low budget horror films.

Aliens have landed on earth and are seeking out humans to supply the flesh for an intergalactic fast-food chain. It takes four men with some hand held weaponry to battle against the aliens and save the human race.

Bad Taste is bad. But it's supposed to be bad. Simply consisting of director Peter Jackson and his friends running around trying to have as much blood and gore as financially possible.

This movie was clearly a predecessor to Jackson's superior Dead Alive , the influence is really obvious. Jackson always has an interesting take with his movies, the cameras move unlike most movies I see. Plus, I like his philosophy on just having fun with his movies and not caring about what anyone says. He just wants to blow stuff up and have blood spew out of every hole, is that too much to ask?

However, Bad Taste does reach a dragging point and definitely lacks the consistant entertainment of Dead Alive, but I thought it was worth seeing for the sake of seeing it, if that makes any sense.

What is it about me that makes me rent such bad movies?

They should remove the word taste and substitute movie. It was that bad. I normally love bad movies, cult movies; anything sick and twisted, with low production value and bad acting, but this movie was just pointless. The acting was somewhat ok and the costumes were on par with something from a holloween shop, which would normally be amusing, but this movie was just boring. I sat around for 20 minutes waiting for something, ANYTHING, to happen. Don't waste your time.

Here is a summation of the story. Aliens land on earth and disguise themselves and humans. The disguise doesn't work that well because they all walk like zombies. They start their conquest for world domination, and harvest, with some small Australian town. A group of guys from a government agency come to stop them (four guys with hand-guns, ooo I'm scared.) They fight, and eventually the aliens reveal their true form (like the image on the box cover.) The aliens are repelled, blah blah blah, happy ending.

origins of greatness?

It's amazing how this film doesn't show much of any of the greatness Jackson shows us in Lord of the Rings. Nonetheless, it is rediculously funny, abundantly gory, and piles on the make-up effects like there's no tomorrow. Fast-paced, brainless, but fun in an odd way.
