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

Considering this took something like 3 years to film, and only on weekends, I expected continuity to be a complete mess throughout. But I gotta say, I got sucked in pretty quick to this movie. It pretty well has every cult film influence packed in. Romero, Bartel, Sharman, Miller, you name it. And what really impressed me was it was as if they all got together to make this on their free time, and pushed Jackson aside. As schlocky as the movie is, it does have impressive camera work, special effects, and stunts. As for acting...? Well, no Oscar contenders here. But their fun is infectious, especially Jackson's 'brainless' performance. There's nothing really 'new' in this movie, but is a fun homage to past classics, and can hold it's head up with the best of them - or worst of them if you will. I'd say Jackson is best when 'unbridled', and Bad Taste shows what one talented Kiwi and a camera can do!

Peter Jacksons first film is a classic as youve read in other reviews the story goes like this.... A group of alien decide to make earth thier food suppliy so its up to 4 (well five if you count the other dude) men to stop them. I wasnt expecting a gorefest but it was. The best character is Peter himself as the psyico leader Derek who lost his mind (really) about gettin those bastards. The last 17 mins are composed of a huge shootout. I Find this one better then dead alive because dead alive used wayyyyyyy to much dark humor and this one used tons of humor that anyone could laugh at. The reason its so funny its because everything looked staged and bad.... But thats what low budget is all about. In one part as I recall when Derek falls off the cliff you can see a bucket of fake blood being thrown into the air look closly. Get this movie and DONT see dead alive before this it will kinda ruin you thoughts about it. As a matter of fact, dont see dead alive at all before watching a film like evil dead or zombie becausewhen you hear about the gore in those movies youll think its nothing compared to dead alive. Anyways see this film and enjoy it....

Oh my God, where do we begin with this one? Disgusting? Hilarious? Gross-out? Yes to all three and more. The plot is about as thin as a supermodel and the budget is on the same level as a class of school children's milk money.
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.

I saw this movie based on a rave review I read in FAngoria magazine and boy it sure as hell doesn't let down. Pete Jackson does an amazing job with a budget that looks to be lower than the first EVIL DEAD film (which was $... by the way). He pulls off mindblowing camera tricks and gore stunts, carving his way through a wisp of a plot about some aliens (disguised as humans) who have come to Earth to steal human corpses for their intergalactic fastfood chain. Jackson would develop more substantial plots later, and I suspect this fun little mindless flick was just his way of showing off his action direting muscle, as well as earning some bucks to put into his next film. BAD TASTE combines the splat-stick humor of EVIL DEAD films and trhe in-your-face attack of TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE for a crazy ride. To check out a real scream of a hilariously sick film, check out Jackson's MEET THE FEEBLES. And don't acuse the poor guy of selling out with the LORD films...it's good to see a horror director break into the mainstream...although I hope he goes back to this kind of stuff someday!!!

This first movie from director Peter Jackson, is a fun, lively slice of dark comedy made for movie nerds, D&D geeks, and people just starting out in their film careers. It has all the elements of a "cult classic." It has bad effects, mediocre acting, and a plotless script. But the movie is vastly entertaining because it allows you to think, "Gee, maybe I COULD make a movie." The script, though plotless as mentioned earlier, is very witty. With great one-liners from the aliens, and the AIDS team members. The gore is full-frontal, but not the kind where you want to vomit, the movie is just plain movie-making fun. Made for enjoyment and satire. Peter Jackson has gone on to direct far better films, including the up-and-coming Lord of the Rings trilogy. It's safe to say that he's come a long way since, but I'm sure it must have been a blast to make this one. It is really tremendous fun. Definitely worth a rental.
