Bad 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!

Director Peter Jackson used his mother's oven to make the latex masks of the characters.

All of the sound in this movie is dubbed; the original tapes were lost.

Peter Jackson constructed his own counterweighted steady-cam. The cost? $15.

There were 3 models of the alien house made. 1. To blow up the side of. 2. To blast off into the skies. 3. To be spun around on a string in the outer space scenes.
