Any movie where the main character wears a lawnmower on his chest and runs into zombies to kill them has got my vote.

Really, Empire? Top 500? This feels like something made by some random high schoolers with dad's videocam and some Halloween make-up.

Peter Jackson's Bad Taste is a relentless series of action and gore gags, and in that epithet, we find the action-comedy-sf-horror flick's biggest weakness. Not its cheapness, which Jackson overcomes with fun gags, cool/gross practical effects, and kinetic camera movement. Its relentlessness. There's SO MUCH of it, as opposed to character development (which maybe the actors couldn't carry off) or even proper exposition and set-up, that my attention tended to waver or turn off around the middle. And yet, Jackson kept bringing me back with another weird thing. It's the story (such as it is) of cannibalistic aliens who more or less act like zombies (bearded Peter Jackson is one of them)... it's all just an excuse to cut people up, shoot people up, and blow stuff up, really. I enjoyed the references to Doctor Who (including a beardless Peter Jackson, as New Zealand's answer to Rick Moranis, playing a scientific adviser with a tell-tale scarf - no, I didn't recognize him). Fun for what it is, but what it is is a promising young director screwing around in his back yard with friends.

Even as a huge fan of the likes of Plan 9 and Evil Dead, this is beyond belief – in the best way possible. I was laughing so hard I was almost in tears. Not a "good" film by any technical means, but easily a new favourite. It's also beyond belief that someone would watch this - hell, any of Peter Jackson's early films - and decide that he was the man to direct LoTR.

As a New Zealander, this movie also has the most accurate portrayal of NZ scenery I've ever seen on screen (if you ignore the aliens, of course). Far beyond what we see of NZ in Whale Rider, Black Sheep, Rain (which I absolutely loathe), and even the fantastic roadtrip in my favourite Kiwi film, Goodbye Pork Pie.

@whataboutki: That is not this movie you are talking about... It's the other Peter Jackson flick.
