Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
We’ve covered Peter Jackson’s Braindead (aka Dead Alive) before, but there’s never enough kicking ass for the lord as far as I’m concerned. I love this film to death (and undeath for that matter) because it seems to be Peter Jackson at his most pure. His imaginative filmmaking is unrestrained by the obligations of a big budget and he’s unafraid of offending anybody’s delicate sensibilities.
There’s a crazy EC style vibe to this flick that works so well. From the photography to the score to the performances to the set pieces and dark humor this one just works for me.
Today’s pic shows off Peter, Richard Taylor and their team giving some scale to their model work used to send modern day Wellington back to a few generations with a minimal budget.

In tomorrow’s pic’s dreams it’s the dungeon master!
