'Vittles Earth' — Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste Brings the Gore to Logue’s This Weekend


1 comment

Before New Zealand became home to a never-ending parade of elves, dwarfs and furry-footed hobbits, there were some depraved and nastier critters hanging out in the ersatz Middle Earth. Director Peter Jackson’s debut feature film from 1987, Bad Taste, could certainly never be accused of having a misleading title in this absurdly gory story of a bumbling team of alien hunters putting the skids on an invasion of Earth by an alien fast food franchise intent on adding fricasseed humans to their happy meals.

Shot over four years — and using Peter Jackson’s mother’s kitchen as the main prop factory — Bad Taste features creative chainsaw art, a brain tourniquet, exploding sheep and gushers of gore. It’s showing this weekend at the Cult Fiction Underground at Logue’s Black Raven Emporium, Friday and Saturday at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. No outside refreshments from Crumb's Crunchy Delights will be allowed in theatre.
