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
People nowadays just like nonsensical violence, it really does not make sense for our society to produce this utter trash. Especially by directors that have such a big following, it just leads to many poisoned minds that have a much harder tolerance to violence and as of such are capable of much more violence than someone less exposed to imagery of this sort.
Directors with such a large following should really know better. So should publishing houses and cinemas.
This film that should not be called film. This is a porn flick for weirdos who are into extreme violence. You know the sort, those that need to see a psychologist.
I think less of the people that review this highly, than the directors that actually made it.
