my favorite bmovie-turned big time is Peter Jackson. His first movie, Bad Taste, is one of the best gore flicks i've ever seen! Then he did Meet the Feebles,Dead Alive (lawnmower scene = goriest evar!) The Frighteners, Heavenly Creatures and most recently, Lord of the rings! I'm sure there were tons of people who had their doubts - and i'm sure there must be some interesting scenes that will be in the dvd version!
