Trivia: Bad Taste

  • Acting for Two: both Derek and Robert are played by Peter Jackson, which makes the scene where Derek tries to torture Robert to reveal why the aliens are here all the funnier.
  • Directed by Cast Member
  • Dyeing for Your Art: Pete O'Herne had to keep his beard throughout the four year filming stretch.
    • The Jackson family had to eat an inordinate number of vegetable meals during those four years, thanks to him commandeering the oven to make the alien costumes.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Derek and Robert are both played by Peter Jackson himself.
  • Name's the Same: These Boys aren't The Boys.
  • Prop Recycling: One of the alien masks can be seen in Meet the Feebles.
  • Public Domain: The movie was mistakenly thought to be in the public domain, as Mill Creek Entertainment briefly included it in a 50 pack of horror films. It turned out that the copyright was still valid and the movie was pulled from the set.
