Morris Minor, Fenchurch

Bad Taste Moggy

The Internets are very quiet this morning, so here for your amusement I bring you the Morris Minor subplot from Bad Taste:

I've cut out all the gory bits and swearing so it should be safe to show to your visiting grandkids or whatever. The background music is rather disjoint because I've had to cut out big sections between the scenes, but it still makes up a surprisingly coherent little story.

In case you haven't heard of it before (though I suspect most people reading my LJ probably already own a copy), Bad Taste is a great comedy-horror-scifi movie, and the first creation of Peter Jackson who is now rightly famous as the director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. If you like comedy horror with plenty of blood and guts thrown in, I can highly recommend you track down the full movie (it was released on DVD a few years ago - try Amazon). It was filmed on a shoestring budget in New Zealand in the mid-eighties. Apparently the Moggy belonged to a friend's wife, and they'd accidentally torn the bumper off while trying to tow a too-heavy trailer, hence why it came off so easily when the alien grabbed it.
