Well, let`s give it (and Peter Jackson) credit for one thing: TRUTH IN ADVERTISING! You can`t say you weren`t warned (and this is the guy who created the LORD OF THE RINGS and HOBBIT trilogies? WOW! WHO KNEW!)

Let's face it - When it comes to its hilarious, old school, grind-gore effects (that are really quite over-the-top and need to be seen to be believed), Bad Taste is a small-scale "Alien Invasion" picture that would have, otherwise, been forgotten long ago and dismissed as pure rubbish without them.

With so much going against it (terrible dialogue, dumb situations, badly-staged violence, incompetent direction, predictable story), 1987's Bad Taste would be Peter Jackson's first feature film as a director and, with that, it, unfortunately, showed his amateur status clearly at this very early stage in his career.

All-in-all - The appropriately titled "Bad Taste" was at least worth a few honest-to-goodness belly-laughs. The absolute highlight of its z-grade hilarity was the priceless moment when the aliens' asses were exposed to the viewer. Talk about funny!

Set in the remote, New Zealand town of Kiahoro, Bad Taste was produced on a shoe-string budget of just 200,000 NZ dollars.

Besides not giving a sweet-damn about the fate of any of the characters in the story, this viewer also thought that the film's rock and roll soundtrack stank, big-time.

Oh, well - What the heck, eh? I still thought that its super-cheesy effects were a lot of fun to watch.
