First: Robert Rodriguez brings us "Planet Terror" in which a town is overrun by disease infected sickos. Then comes Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof", in which a serial killer named Stuntman Mike murders people by the use of his stuntcar instead of a knife or machete.
"Robert's film is Horror, it couldn't happen, but mine is Terror because it could."
Before or in between the movies, there will be a series of fake movie trailers (as it was customary in old grindhouse theatres to show coming attractions in the double features). Robert Rodriguez presents a Mexploitation trailer starring the hard boiled actor Danny Trejo in the title role of "Machete". Edgar Wright (director of Shaun of the Dead
) presents "Don't", a "70s style British horror film". Rob Zombie presents a Nazisploitation-sci-fi-horror flick "Werewolf Women of the S.S.", starring Sherri Moon Zombie, Sybill Danning, Udo Kier, Bill Mosely and Nicolas Cage as the legendary Asian mastermind Dr. Fu Manchu. Eli Roth's (Hostel
) fake trailer is an ultraviolent homage to 1970s/'80s holiday themed slasher films called "Thanksgiving". An additional fake trailer called "Hobo with a Shotgun", created by Dartmouth, Nova Scotia filmmakers Jason Eisener, Rob Cotterill, and John Davies for Robert Rodriguez's SXSW Grindhouse Trailers contest, has been included in Canadian theaters. "Hobo with a Shotgun" is attached to the other regular trailers played before the main feature presentation which begins with "Machete".
