Peter Jackson? While he’s been busy not making The Hobbit, which has now ballooned into a $900 million, six film undertaking that contractually involves beheading a member of the New Zealand actors’ union for every megabyte of processed digital effects, Ben Carson scraped together $2 million to make the low budget Orcs!. Orcs invade a national park and the park rangers fight back and try to survive.
