Storyline

A double-bill of thrillers that recall both filmmakers' favorite exploitation films. "Grindhouse" (a downtown movie theater in disrepair since its glory days as a movie palace known for "grinding out" non-stop double-bill programs of B-movies) is presented as one full-length feature comprised of two individual films helmed separately by each director. "Death Proof," is a rip-roaring slasher flick where the killer pursues his victims with a car rather than a knife, while "Planet Terror" shows us a view of the world in the midst of a zombie outbreak. The films are joined together by clever faux trailers that recall the '50s exploitation drive-in classics. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

The idea for a double feature movie came from Desperado (1995). Quentin Tarantino loved it, and immediately signed on for it to be his follow up to the Kill Bill series. See more »

Goofs

In the final scene of "Death Proof," when the Dodge Challenger forces the Charger to spin out and crash, the Charger's rear wheels are still on the car. As the girls approach the car in the next scene, one rear wheel (driver's side) is no longer in the car. See more »

Crazy Credits

The closing credits include pieces of film leader shown in time with the music. Most of these are "China girls," used to check the film's color timing. If you look closely, you will see brief segments of "Death Proof" outtakes. See more »

Brilliant Filmaking!
5 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love Tarantino and Rodriguez so needless to say this might be a bit bias but here it is: this film was amazing! I loved it from top to bottom. The characters were perfect and the plots were extremely interesting and visually impressive. This movie fully encompassed the true spirit of the Grindhouse genre and if these types of movies are your thing you will not be disappointed. Not to mention the trailers. They were hilarious and ridiculous all at the same time. Although the movie was a long one, you will have no problem sitting through over three hours of nonstop gore, violence some of the best car chase scenes I have ever seen and an all-star cast (including a few surprises I won't ruin for you) that just adds to the fun. GO SEE THIS MOVIE IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!
