I've actually seen Bad Boy Bubby. Overall, I'd say I liked it, but I don't think it entirely successful in what it was trying to convey. Certainly not for the squeamish.

Note, I'm not panning Incident. In many ways it's rather good. Imagine The X-Files if it took place in 1980s Australia with a much lower budget. It's certainly very earnest in its approach to making its weirdness sustained and viable. I think it if it didn't commit some of the storytelling sins I mentioned in my original post, it could very well have been a classic of good, low-budget sci-fi.


Yeah that sums up his films generally: good but not entirely 'on point.'  He has gotten better though with the Tracker and Ten Canoes, but they are different films to the semi surreal earlier efforts like Bad Boy Bubby and probably don't have as much of a place at a B-movie website.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
