 Frank: "Just remember, we're only authorized to use violence when there's a threat to the planet Earth."

Barry: "And the Moon."

Frank: "Yeah, and the Moon."


Bad Taste is first film made by the oscar winner Peter Jackson. It's a splatter movie about a bunch of aliens working for intergalactic fastfood company, who massacrie the town of Kaihoro for the meat of its inhabitants.

However, one of the townsfolk manages to send a distress call and Astro Investigation and Defence Service sends out The Boys to investigate. The team consists of four members: Barry (the Straight Man of the group), Frank, Ozzy (a trigger-happy duo), and Derek (a sociopath with a slight drooling problem). Hilarity Ensues as The Boys clash with the aliens; Derek goes berserk, a charity collector Giles is abducted and The Boys have to clean up the whole mess.

Notable for being shot with a shoestring budget during weekends in period of four years.

Bad Taste contains examples of:


  Derek: "I'm a Derek. Dereks don't run."


 "That cleared the sinuses!"


 Frank: "Yeah but you know what the rules are. When we work undercover we have to remain faceless."

Ozzy: "Oh I get it, just in case we kill a lot of innocent people!" (Cocks gun)

    • Also, Derek shows a little too much joy torturing Robert (the alien he captured) and at the end when he'a cutting aliens up with a chainsaw
  • Cool Car: Derek's Beatles-mobile.
  • Conveyor Belt of Doom: Happens when the alien leader rolls back the house-ship's grass and is stuck on it.
  • Creepy Basement
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Derek going through boss alien's head and coming out his rear with his chainsaw.
  • Distress Call: Doomed Kaihoro sents one in the opening.
  • Distressed Dude: Giles.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: One of the alien mooks moves barefooted.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: Frank dresses as one of the mooks during the infiltration.
  • Drop the Hammer: After hearing one of their own being tortured by Derek, bunch of aliens grab sledgehammers and rush to the rescue.
  • Efficient Displacement: At one point Derek saws a hole shaped like himself on the aliens headquarters' wall.
  • Evil Chef: One of the aliens who looks suspiciously like Peter Jackson during his Lord of the Rings years.
  • Eyepatch of Power Worn by one of the alien mooks.
  • Flipping the Bird: As seen on the cover (at least, the original cover. later versions added a second finger). Giles, also flips Robert off at one point.
    • A little harder to notice is one of the aliens flipping off the protagonists as they make their escape in a car.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Astro Investigation and Defence Service. Lampshaded in the movie:

  Ozzy: "Wish we'd change that name!"


 "Eat lead, sucker!"

"Suck my spinning steel, shithead!"
