Time Out
January 26, 2006
A climatic rebirth-by-chainsaw scene almost makes it all worthwhile, though you may have had to visit the bathroom once or twice in the wait.

Divertido em seu humor descompromissado, este trash faz rir, mas não oferece o menor indício do virtuoso cineasta que Jackson se tornaria.
| Original Score: 3/5

I miss Peter Jackson in his ultra low-budget horror mode. He always looked like he was having fun. Not half as good as Dead Alive, but still a hoot.

Jackson does it all in this movie: writes, directs, stars, produces, and designs the makeup.

Fun, though the title couldn't be more apt.

It certainly makes good on its title.

The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson's debut is rather aptly named. Its crudity has more to do with Sam Raimi than Tolkein, but there's a wonderfully sophomoric enthusiasm that keeps it interesting.

It warms the heart to know that the creator of this insanity went on to win the Oscar.

[Bad Taste will] probably work best when watched with an enthusiastic group, and a copious amount of alcohol on standby.

Goofball gore flick that deservedly put Peter Jackson on the map!

An Ok start for a good director

Paucity of budget, however, cannot hide boundless creativity, true filmmaking style or gobs and gobs of in-your-face homemade gore and grue.

Absolutely insane, irretrievably disgusting, and joyously covered in gore. It ain't "Dead Alive," but it's a whole lot of wet, drippy fun.
