Ten films for under ten pounds appears to be pretty good value for money. The set also features Peter Jackson's mighty 'Bad Taste', which is a classic amongst fans of splatter and will probably merit the vast majority of purchases.

However, the transfer quality on most of these films is pretty awful. Sadly, Bad Taste is not excluded from this flaw. It looks like the contrast has been set far too low on a VHS video recorder and the brightness too high. It has then been presumably re-recorded on DVD-R.

Secondly, the version of Bad Taste on offer appears to be slightly edited. It should be noted however that Bad Taste was originally released to UK audiences on VHS in two different formats - one at 87 minutes and the other at 91 minutes (it was passed uncut by the BBFC in both formats), and as such the quality is probably not too far removed from the original VHS release. Or maybe it is simply played faster. But I am sure there are bits missing - I recall more detail in Derek's brain accident.

The remainder of the films are not great, although there a few chuckles to be had from the low budget nature of them. Bad Taste still has some great moments, and the other films may appeal to people who enjoy the 'so bad it's good' variety of horror.

Personally, I would look elsewhere for a remastered version of Bad Taste. There appear to be other versions available, but they are a bit more expensive.

So shockingly bad, it's good.
I'm assuming the effects are intentionally terrible for comedy purposes.
Overall,worth a watch, probably best not to have the kids in the room.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Bad taste is the main reason I bought this DVD and the quality of the film is perfect. The other gore films included are a bonus and well worth the money. A must buy for all gore and horror fans!!!

Me and my friends watched this as a joke, and we haven't laughed so hard at a movie since Leprechaun. We haven't even finished the film yet but it's so bad it's good! As soon as we saw this we wanted to watch it and now that we are, we're chocking on our popcorn. Worst horror movie ever but worth watching
