A team from the intergalactic fast food chain Crumb's Crunchy Delights descends on Earth, planning to make human flesh the newest taste sensation. After they wipe out the New Zealand town Kaihoro, the country's Astro-Investigation and Defense Service is called in to deal with the problem. Things are complicated due to Giles, an aid worker who comes to Kaihoro the same day to collect change from the residents. He is captured by the aliens, and AIaDS stages a rescue mission that quickly becomes an all-out assault on the aliens' headquarters.
One thing the aliens hadn't counted on was Derek, and Dereks don't run!

- 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. There was never a script for the movie; each scene was filmed from ideas the director had come up with during the week.
Pete O'Herne hadn't shaved before his first scene. Director Peter Jackson told him to keep that look for continuity. So for four years, O'Herne couldn't shave for more than once a week and this habit was hard to break after shooting was completed.
All the dialogue in the film was dubbed in post-production. This was for two reasons: A) Part of the footage had no sound with it, since it had been filmed on Peter Jackson's own 16mm camera which didn't support sound recording, and B) Once the New Zealand Film Commission funded the remainder of the film, Jackson hired a sound camera. However, neither Jackson nor his crew were very skilled with sound recording and most of the dialogue was unusable.
Peter Jackson constructed his own counterweighted steady-cam device for this film that cost only $15.
The movie was banned in the Australian state of Queensland until the early '90s, when the Queensland Censorship Board was disbanded.
