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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

An alien race is trying to get humans for their restaurant franchise. The commandos spend the movie killing them. Blood and guts galore in this one to be sure.
Director Peter Jackson wrote, directed, and stars in this. He's the guy with the glasses that spends the entire movie trying to hold the back of his head together (his brain keeps falling out).
I made the mistake of eating a supreme pizza watching this during the 'barf cocktail' scene. A dude pukes a green fluid into a large punchbowl and it is passed around like a delicious McDonald's Shamrock Shake. It is steaming and has what appears to be cornbeef and corn floating in it. If the sight doesn't get you, maybe the sound will. They are drinking it up but are making puking and gagging sounds as they drink it. It was enough to make me lose my appetite, and I can sit through anything.
The finale is our boy Peter going down the chief alien's throat with a chainsaw, of course he winds up coming out the alien's butt with a scream of victory and delight.

Of course like everyone else I was impressed with The Lord of the Rings. (to a degree) I liked The Frightener's, and I thought Meet the Feebles was hilarious, so I thought I would... Read morePublished on Aug. 12 2005 by Darth Marc
