This is in the top 400? SOLELY because it's the work of Peter Jackson, not because it merits it on its own.

@Hedgehog, I disagree :) I loved this movie before Jackson even came up with the idea of making the Rings movies. It's hilarious if you like ridiculous, gory slapstick. If not, you've been warned...

This movie is purely great and it deserves to remain as the goriest film of all time. Dead Alive, Braindead, whatever you want to call it is one of the best films of the 90's.

This films gets increasingly ridiculous as it goes along, but it also becomes more fun. I loved the gory practical effects.

This film has one of the funniest scenes ever put to film: Divine Intervention.
