MEET THE FEEBLES (the feebles; just the feebles) (1989 NEW ZEALAND) D/W/P: PETER JACKSON W: DANNY MULHERON/STEPHEN SINCLAIR/FRANCES WALSH P: JIM BOOTH
Jackson`s second feature is an excellent bad taste version of The Muppets (possibly influenced by Gerard Damiano`s LET MY PUPPETS COME). The hero is a shy hedgehog who joins the twisted acting troupe that includes a walrus, a crab monster, a rabbit (with AIDS) and there`s also a snooping paparazzi fly (who eats shit). Not forgetting the pornographer rat (who figures in a great DEER HUNTER spoof). There`s plenty of sex, violence, gore and don`t forget it`s also a musical. Essential viewing. Jackson made BRAINDEAD next.
