While the original VHS box artwork had the alien flipping the middle finger, tapes distributed to US video rental stores were provided with an extra finger that could be glued in place to make it look like it was making a "peace" sign instead. See more »
When Derek hits the rocks, you can see a crew member throw a bucket of blood, and you can see two hands throw the legs over the rocks. You have to use slow motion to see. See more »

In Australia the 1988 VHS release was cut by 1 minute. It wasn't until 2004 when the film was re-released on DVD did Australia get to see the film uncut. See more »
I bought Dead Alive (aka Braindead) on VHS and i just loved it! I done know why, but gore IS funny! After seeing it, I decided to try another of Peter Jackson's old movies. I chose Bad Taste instead of Meet The Fibles (or what-ever it's called). When I watched the movie I was rather disappointed. I knew that I shouldn't expect the same quality and humour as Dead Alive, but I still aimed too high. In my opinion the acting is pretty bad. I don't know if that just the way they talk in New Zealand, but the dialog sounds really fake. The movie just reeks of the word "amateur". And another thing: After seeing Dead Alive, you'll never think of gore the same way again. As a result of that, you'll think there's hardly any of it in Bad Taste. So if your looking for another gore feast after seeing Dead Alive, this probably isn't the way to go.
