A NOTE REGARDING SPOILERS

The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. It is assumed that no one who is diligently avoiding spoilers will be visiting this page in the first place.

This takes some work, but all of the above films all exist within the same movie universe. There are several links between all of the movies that can be made.

Warning BIG spoliers ahead.

The best link is the character of Earl McGraw who appears in all of the movie's plots.

Earl McGraw dies at the start of From Dusk Till Dawn. So this would place From Dusk Till Dawn's events at the end of the timeline.

Then there is Jasper who is alive in the Death Proof segment of Grindhouse, but dies in Kill Bill: Vol. 1.

There is also the link of El Wray from the Planet Terror segment of Grindhouse and the town the that Seth Gecko and Richard Gecko were heading to in From Dusk Till Dawn which was also called "El Wray".

Another link is Dr. Dakota Block who appears in both the Death Proof and Planet Terror segments of Grindhouse, and this is the best place to start. Dr. Dakota Block is also the daughter of Earl McGraw and sister of Edgar McGraw who also appears in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money.

I think that is most of the links made (there could be more) but from this you can start to piece together the chronology of the universe, so...

The events of Death Proof must happen before the events of Planet Terror. This can be assumed by the relationship between Dr. Dakota Block and Earl McGraw which is frayed in Death Proof and most of Planet Terror, but they do make up by the end of Planet Terror. Also the lack of "sickos" in Death Proof would suggest this is before Planet Terror. Plus Dr. Dakota Block leaves at the end of Planet Terror, but is back working in the hospital in Death Proof. There is also a mention "in memory of" over the radio of Jungle Julia from Death Proof in the events of Planet Terror.

So we have...

1, Death Proof

2, Planet Terror

Then we can move onto Jasper. As he is alive in Death Proof but dies in Kill Bill: Vol. 1. That would place the (current) events of Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 after the events of Death Proof.

So...

1, Death Proof

2, Planet Terror

3, Kill Bill: Vol. 1

4, Kill Bill: Vol. 2

Then onto Earl McGraw who is alive in Death Proof, Planet Terror and Kill Bill: Vol. 1 but is killed in From Dusk Till Dawn.

Leading us to...

1, Death Proof

2, Planet Terror

3, Kill Bill: Vol. 1

4, Kill Bill: Vol. 2

5, From Dusk Till Dawn

But then you have to include From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money and From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter.

Edgar McGraw makes reference to the events and death of his father Earl McGraw in From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money, which obviously sets this film after From Dusk Till Dawn. Then From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter is actually a prequel set in the 1800's therefore the earliest of the connections.

So finaly, chronologically the films go...

1, From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter

2, Death Proof

3, Planet Terror

4, Kill Bill: Vol. 1

5, Kill Bill: Vol. 2

6, From Dusk Till Dawn

7, From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money
