[ Movie Page: Bad Taste (1987) ]


The population of a small town disappears and is replaced by aliens that chase human flesh for their intergalactic fast-food chain.

Long before Lord Of The Rings, Peter Jackson wrote and directed a low budget horror movie over the course of four years, working mainly on the weekends he had off from his newspaper job. In 1987 Bad Taste was released, an alien invading splatterfest with everything from brain munching to vomit drinking, starring Jackson himelf in two roles. While visually revolting at times, Bad Taste is also funny in an Evil Dead sort of way. A must see for any "wet" horror fan.
