Planet Terror (2007)
This is Robert Rodriguez's half of Grindhouse.
In the scene where Earl McGraw (Michael Parks) feeds his invalid wife, there's a framed photo of Parks on a motorcycle from 'Then Came Bronson'.
The shot of Abby stepping on the testicle with his boot mirrors a shot from the opening montage of 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls', where an egg is crushed by a boot.
The dancing/humilation scene directly references 'Cry of the Banshee', including the line "Dance, bitch!".
Rapist #1 watches the trailer for "Women In Cages" on a televison at the millitary base.
El Wray calls his wrecker "the Killdozer".
Compiled along with Torso by QT and RR as an example to show the actors a grindhouse format double feature; also, the scene in which Rapist #1 has a wooden stake pushed through his eyeball is taken from Zombi 2.
Some of the zombies use weapons and guns is a direct homage of this film. Also according to Quentin Tarantino in a interview, Planet Terror is heavily influence by Umberto Lenzi's Nightmare City aka City of the Walking Dead.
"Black Flight", the name of the Special Forces unit Snake Plissken served in, is featured on the back of a humvee'.
The transformation of the infected Rapist #1 is a reference to this movie
Cherry's final role parallels Sarah Connor, mother and leader of the human resistance. Also, Michael Biehn (Reese) appears.
Both films feature doctors named Doctor Block/Bloch (pronounced the same), and the female Dr. Block appears to have been made up to look exactly like Barbara Crampton in From Beyond. Also, her son's line about "I'm going to eat your brain and gain your knowledge" is a reference to a major plot point in From Beyond.
Brief shootout between Wray and zombie soldier "behind the barricades"
The face-melting effects are identical
El Wray spins a gun in his hand and pulls the trigger with his pinky. Billy the Kid does the same thing in Young Guns.
The scene in which Tarantino's character - The Rapist - says "I seen me a stripper with one breast. And I seen me a stripper with twelve toes. I've even seen me a stripper with no brains at all, but I ain't never seen a one-legged stripper." is similar to the line said by screenwriter Larry Ferguson who plays Watson in "The Hunt for Red October", which goes "Y'know, I seen me a mermaid once. I even seen me a shark eat an octopus. But I ain't never seen no phantom Russian submarine."
Line: "I bet you thought that was pretty funny?", also said by the character played by Tarantino.
Wray buys a pack of Red Apple cigarettes from J.T.'s .
In the 'trailer' for Machete, the character Machete climbs on top of a car and throws knives into it through the sunroof. This also happens in Desperado, and both characters are played by Danny Trejo.
