After concocting all manner of outlandish images on 8mm film, Bad Taste was Peter Jackson’s breakthrough; the first feature to make it from his Pukerua Bay backyard to cinema screens, where it quickly began to rack up sales. An all-male cast of public service Alien Investigation and Detection Service operatives run amok with guns, food, vomit, rockets and misguided enthusiasm to rid the earth of alien Lord Crumb and his fast-food gang, who want to turn earthlings into hamburgers. Jackson takes two acting roles in this ‘splatstick’ masterpiece.
