Product Description

Amazon.ca

Could a title be any more direct? New Zealand maverick Peter Jackson made a splash (well, more of a splatter) with this film debut, a slapstick gross-out comedy about an alien fast-food franchise that turns a small town into a cheap source of meat. All that stands in the extraterrestrials' way is the Alien Investigation Defense Service (yes, it's a tasteless gag), a bunch of would-be Rambos who take on the aliens with axes, rocket launchers, and chainsaws. Jackson mines vomit jokes, dismembered corpses, and brain-spattering gore for over-the-top laughs and succeeds with inventive low-budget effects, crack timing, and sheer exuberance. Not bad for a film made on weekends with homemade props and a bunch of energetic mates. Jackson topped himself a few years later with the even more outrageous and hilarious bloody gut-buster Dead Alive.

The limited-edition two-disc set also includes the documentary featurette "Good Taste Made Bad Taste," a revealing "making of" shot at the time of production and featuring behind-the-scenes footage of Jackson's home-made special effects, and a 16-page booklet with cast interviews. --Sean Axmaker

5.0 out of 5 stars "what are you doodyhodders doin' on my planet?" July 19 2004

Format:DVD
When i first got bad taste i was verry surprised at how great the packageing is , theres a holographic cover aswell as a nice plastic sleeve . what else would one expect ? its is after all , an Anchor Bay dvd.after finaly getting to view bad taste on something bigger than a computer screen i was verry pleased ! this movie rocks so much . my only complaint is that it lacks specal features . theres a great documentary called good taste made bad taste wich does rock but other than that , all you get is a written bio. on Peter Jackson and a trailer ; wich is dissapointing but everything else easely makes up for it . it says on the cover "from the director of LORD OF THE RINGS" i hope some fans of l.o.t.r pick it up because of that and realise it doesnt take a zillion dollars to make a great movie .

5.0 out of 5 stars Micro-Budget Masterpiece June 18 2004
By stu
Format:DVD
This movie is too much fun. This is schlock of the highest caliber. Peter Jackson's considerable talent is on full display in his debut feature film. The camera work and the editing are amazing. The physical schtick is impeccably timed and photographed. Despite the nothing budget, the technical aspects of this movie are outstanding.
Peter Jackson stars as Derreck(sp?), the sadistic, snivling scientist whose four man government agency, the Alien Investigation Defense Service, has been called upon to thwart a hostile alien invasion of a small backwoods town. Jackson's Derreck is revolting and charasmatic at the same time - a truly original anti-hero. The aliens are actually employees of an intergalactic fast food chain that has just begun marketing human meat - and it is evidently delicious. Can our four heroes save the relief worker (con artist) and foil the aliens' evil plan?
There are some great gags in this movie including a Monty Pythonesque exploding sheep and a recurring joke involving Peter Jackson's character's cerebellum continually falling out, being trodden upon, and then being stuffed back in.
This is an extremely enjoyable movie. For optimal enjoyment, watch it with plenty of alchohol and a couple of friends.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't live up to the hype... June 9 2004
Format:DVD
I am a huge fan of horror/gore movies. For years I have heard about this movie with people talking about how good it is, how gory it is. Finally I shelled out the cash for the DVD and was really dissapointed. Other reviewers have described the plot well enough so I won't delve into that. I will say that you should probably rent this before buying it.
If you are looking for crazy gore I think that you would be better off with a movie like the directors cut of Citizen Toxie or maybe one of the newer japanese gore movies (which blow away everything I've ever seen before).

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Dissapointed May 1 2004
Format:DVD
I was pretty dissapointed by this movie. Usually I would give a little bit of leeway to a movie like this, but the movie didn't give me alot of room to for leeway.
Thats not to say that "Bad Taste" is a bad movie. It probably would have been a lot more fun had it been. "Bad Taste" is compatantly made. The main problem with this movie is its just boring.
The pacing is greatly flawed and the final battle goes on about ten minutes too long. I found myself getting bored frequently and waiting for cool gore moments which sadly rarely materailized.
Too give credit where its deserved, working on a small budget, Peter Jackson made an impressive directoral debut. THe special effects are pretty good and acting suprisingly decent for a low budget feature.
But overall, "Bad Taste" rarely held my attention and provided, in my opinion, very little bits of cool gore. I would recomend "Dead Alive" over this movie anyday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anchor Bay's Bad Taste: Good Taste! April 24 2004
Format:DVD
After the success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, it was pretty much inevitable that director Peter Jackson's old classics would be released to DVD. Already available in a plain, single disc edition, DVD wonder Anchor Bay has re-released Jackson's Bad Taste in a limited 2-disc DVD pack.
THE FILM
Bad Taste was a sensation it was released, and it is a major cult film now. Peter Jackson's 1987 debut picture finds four alienbusters coming to a New Zealand town, where the discover the town overtaken by aliens. Of course, these aren't your everyday Sigourney Weaver aliens. Un-uh. These guys are part of the intergalatic food chain Crumb's Crunchy Delights, and all they want is some major human flesh to chew on. Hmmm ...
Being Jackson's debut, the film obviously can't meet up to later hits like Braindead (a.k.a. Dead Alive) and Lord of the Rings, but there's some talent in here yet. It seems like a backyard picture, and I suppose that's one of the reasons it's so popular. What I do know is that it's gory, entertaining, and the most digusting film I've ever seen. [7/10]
THE VIDEO
Anchor Bay has done a terrific remastering job. There isn't any grain anywhere. A flawless work. [10/10]
THE AUDIO
As all the voices in the film were dubbed after shooting, many times the words didn't meet the mouth movements. Well, Anchor Bay has - somehow - fixed this problem with its lovely DD 5.1 remix. No problem here. [10/10]
THE EXTRAS
Well, if you consider the fact that it's a Limited Edition (of 50,000) an extra, then we got that here. Anchor Bay's double-disc set includes a Peter Jackson bio, the film's trailer, and a very good documentary about the film: "Good Taste Made Bad Taste". I think fans of the film will be pleased.
