Mike Minett (Frank) was almost hit by a sledgehammer which flew out of an actor's hands during the filming of the cliff fight. It narrowly missed his face, sailing over the cliff and landing on the rocks below. 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 »

Yeah, but don't forget about his personality disorder

"I'm a Derek, Dereks don't run."
Bad Taste is one of the weirdest, stupidest, most idiotic, b (if that) movies I've ever seen. Why then do I own this movie? Because Peter Jackson has created one of the funniest splatterfests period (especially the hilarious machine gun scene and the pine cone tossing). It takes a while for the hilarity to start but so did Dead Alive (another Jackson great). Enjoy as Derek, Ozzy (wearing a Tales From the Crypt t-shirt), and the rest of the boys take on extra-terrestrial buggers who've come to Earth in search of meat. The plot is also a little hard to follow the first time around. After watching Bad Taste many times however, I have no idea how he was chosen to direct the Lord of the Rings (which rocked). So, Peter Jackson, for that...I salute you.
