Product description

Product Description

A Peter Jackson spoof-horror double. 'Braindead' is a very gory comedy/horror. 25-year-old Lionel Cosgrove has never even kissed a girl, and so is excited when the lovely Paquita, a Spanish girl who works in the corner shop, arranges a nocturnal tryst with him in the zoo. Unfortunately, Lionel's over-possessive mother, spying on them from the bushes, is bitten by a Sumatran Monkey Rat, and soon develops a craving for raw meat. Upon learning of this, Lionel tries to warn his new love of his mother's strange cannibalistic habits before it is too late. Whilst 'Bad Taste' is an alien invasion spoof and not for the faint-hearted or weak-stomached. A large group of aliens led by Lord Crumb land on Earth to collect their planet's delicacy - humans. But the Alien Invasion Defence Service is in waiting, prepared to stop them gathering their harvest.

From Amazon.co.uk

If you're not a connoisseur of graphic horror and gruesome gore, you'd better steer clear of Braindead, a wicked 1992 horror-comedy from the demented mind and delirious camera of writer-director Peter Jackson, years before he went on to mainstream success with The Lord of the Rings. However, if non-stop mayhem and extreme violence are your idea of great entertainment, you're sure to appreciate Jackson's gleefully inventive approach to a story that can judiciously be described as sick, twisted and totally outrageous. The movie's central character is a poor schmuck named Lionel who's practically enslaved to his domineering mother. But when ol' Mum gets bitten by a rare and poisonous rat monkey from Skull Island and is turned into a flesh-eating zombie, Lionel has the unfortunate task of keeping Mama happy while fending off all the other zombies that result from her voracious feeding frenzies. If you've read this far, you'll either be crying out for censorship or eagerly awaiting your first viewing (or second, or third...) of this wildly clever and audaciously uninhibited movie. While director Jackson would later achieve far greater critical and box-office successes, his talent is readily evident in this earlier effort. If you find this kind of thing even remotely appealing, consider Braindead a must-see movie. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
