Quotes:

  • Ozzy: The bastards have landed!
     
  • Alien Leader's Voice: Tomorrow we're having you for lunch!
     
  • [After drop-kicking an alien's head out of a window]
    Ozzy: The old magic is still there.
     
  • Derek: I'm a Derek and Dereks don't run!
     
  • Alien Leader's Voice: I think the gruel is ready!
     

Trivia:

  • Peter Jackson constructed his own counterweighted steady-cam device for this film that cost only $15.
     
  • Director Peter Jackson shot the film on weekends over a four-year period with friends playing the lead roles. Jackson funded most of the film himself until towards the end of the shoot when the New Zealand film commission gave him money to finish his project after being impressed with what he'd already produced. The entire movie was improvised.
     
  • All the dialogue in the film was dubbed after the original sound tapes went missing.
     

Credits Fun:

  • Any similarity with persons living or dead is an accident. Sorry.
