This 25 minute documentary on the making of "Bad Taste" can be found on the second disc of the 2-DVD special limited edition of the aforementioned movie. It features interviews with Peter Jackson, his parents, and . It deals with Jackson's childhood, how he creates his special effects, and it's success. It's a pretty good piece, not as retrospective as I'd hope, but that's a given as this was made back in 1988. Yet, still very worthwhile to watch for fans of Peter Jackson. Hell I just wish it were longer then it was, and that's a sign of a good documentary. but I have no clue why this couldn't be on the first disk, drop the second all together and make the DVD slightly cheaper, but what ya gonna do, right?

My Grade:C+
