Thanks to Jenn GrovesBad Taste was filmed over a four-year period by Peter Jackson, with his friends as the actors. Towards the end, the New Zealand Film Commission was impressed with what Jackson had already created, and paid for the rest of it. The entire movie was shot without scripts. Yup, this is the same Peter Jackson now directing the Lord of the Rings trilogy - just goes to show the difference a budget can make - but I don't think he's included a character called Robert in those films!
Thanks to Luis TorresDirector Peter Jackson used his mother's oven to make the latex masks of the characters.
Rewind ArchiveAll of the sound in this movie is dubbed; the original tapes were lost.
