All the dialogue in the film was dubbed in post-production. This was for two reasons: A) Part of the footage had no sound with it, since it had been filmed on Peter Jackson's own 16mm camera which didn't support sound recording, and B) Once the New Zealand Film Commission funded the remainder of the film, Jackson hired a sound camera. However, neither Jackson nor his crew were very skilled with sound recording and most of the dialogue was unusable. 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 Germany, apart from the uncut version (which is banned from public sale to minors) there is a version cut down to a "FSK 18" rating. It leaves out most of the violence and is cut by approximately 7 minutes. 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.
