The Bride must kill her ex-boss and lover Bill who betrayed her at her wedding ceremony, shot her in the head and took away her unborn daughter. But first, she must make the other four members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad suffer.
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
Deliberate mistake, perhaps, that when Jungle Julie mentions, several times, the group Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch, she says Mitch instead of Mick each time. See more »

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 »
The DVD from Alliance Films Is the edited and recut versions of the two films. This was because the film first received an NC-17 rating and to allow the DVD to sell better it was Edited for violence and language making it a hard PG-13 rating. The changes are as followed:
The scene in the dance club is trimmed.
The scene were the woman on the road is torn apart by zombies is edited.
The scene were the alarm clock rings. William and Dakota get out of bed. Is missing.
-You can see earlier how Dakota puts the toy aside.
-The scene where Cherry puts her foot under the water tap and pulls the splinter out of the wound is missing.
-The scene of the front court continues.
-In the car there is a dialogue missing between Dakota and her son.
-The flash "missing reel" can be seen longer.
-You can see the flash: "Reel Missing" more times in this version to cover up the violent scenes.
-The dashboard scene is edited to one Mike slams on the brakes the card "Missing Real" appears again and cuts to mike driving without Pam's body in the car.
-Earl and Edgar step through the first door.
the longest different cuts 11 minutes.
-The video turns black and white. When Mike starts smoking while Kims' car stops next to him.
The entire car crash scene is edited to a zoomed out shot of Mikes Chevrolet Chevy II/Nova crashing against the girl's car without showing the leg and allice's face being skimmed by the tires.
Mikes death at the end of the film is obscured by the girls.
The differences stated make each movie 30 mins shorter making the DVD's run time 125 min. The full theatrical release ( Not the Extended and unrated cuts) are available in the Blu-Ray collector's edition. See more »
There was no doubt in my mind that Grindhouse would be awesome. Two great directors making back to back movies. All films paying homage to the old grindhouse films the two filmmakers grew up on. I have just returned from the advanced showing of the picture and will have to say I am completely satisfied with this great film, or should I say films. The audience was cracking up and cheering and it made the entire experience more memorable. This is the kind of film where I will always remember the first time I saw it. Rodriguez seems to have the most fun with his film Planet Terror. The film is Rodriguez's dream project that he has wanted to make since he was a teenager. Quintin seems to take his a little more serious, but delivers an original story with one of the most satisfying endings. 10/10 is the rating I give this film. I recommend this movies to anyone who is a lover of films.
