double bill theatrical showing of two
films in one by Quentin Tarrantino &
Robert Rodriguez that recall
both filmmakers' favorite exploitation
films along with some fake trailer
segment spoofs by Rob Zombie, Eli Roth
and Edgar Wright.
first story Terror Planet is about a
sherrif named Hague (Michael Biehn) as he
has to cope with a bunch of zombies as
which was caused by some gas that was
used by another army of infected people
called Sickos led by a sergeant named Lt.
Muldoon (Bruce Willis) as he hopes to
take over humankind.
Soon his town of Texas is being invaded
and he tries to protect the survivors
which involves a recently reitred
stripper named Cherry Darling (Rose
McGowan) whom was almost slaughtered
along with her ex-boyfriend El Wray
(Freddy Rodriguez) and a doctor named
Dakota Block (Marley Shelton) as they all
battle these people to the death and to
next film is titled Death Proof about a
psychotic stuntman named Mike (Kurt
Russell) who takes pictures of beautiful
women he encounters and then kills them
with his car.
Well one day he decides to do a near
death prank with three women named Kim
(Tracie Thoms), Jungle Julia (Sydney
Tamiia Poitier) and Zoe (Zoe Bell) who
takes a new car out for a spin that they
think about buying.
But after these three survive this deadly
prank it backfires on Mike as this
enrages them all and then they turn the
tables on him as he is being terrorised
himself by these three.
This was an exciting
drive-in type of movie bringing back the
exploited low budget horror genre.
Well the first film Planet
Terror looks very much like a
tribute to those good old horror flicks Invasion
of the Body Snatchers and
Night of the Living Dead. At
first, it's hard to understand what is
going on but you'll catch on.
The second film
Death Proof at first looks like
a total boring and pointless comedy and I
was thinking wake me up till it gets more
interesting, but then the terror starts a
quarter way through making it an
excellent plot. I cheered in the theatre
as it was a nice revenge plot and I also
laughed my ass off.
It was also cool watching
the fake trailer spoofs too as they were
campy fun along with everything involved
in this flick. If you haven't seen it yet
check it out.
The acting is very campy
but in a very good way as the filmmakers
wanted the perfromens to be goofy as you
We get a good cast in Planet
Terror as they pull their weight
very well with their characters involved.
The best one out of all is supporting
cast member Josh Brolin as a
nasty vengeful doctor and he knows how to
Shelton who plays his wife really
has a knack for her character and proves
herself convincing for a retro looking
film like this one.
Rose McGowan also shows good
attitude with her role too as a retired
It's a surprise we have a special
appearance by my favourite actor Bruce
Willis since he has never really
acted in a horror flick but makes his
role very worthy too as an evil
Richard Jaeckel plays good as a
nit wit sherrif and other supporting
actor Jeff Fahey also struts his
stuff on the big screen convioncingly too
with his comedic character as an owner of
a bar b que lounge.
the second film of Death Proof
Kurt Russell is very good in his
role as a maniac stuntman and he plays an
unuusal character in this one than in any
film I've seen him in.
Zoe Bell I enjoyed when she gets
tough in her part. I give her a two
We have lots of breasts
performed by the actresses in the fake
In Terror Planet there
is a brief breast shot of a woman
changing in a dressing room.
This was probably the
goriest horror film of the year with the
first film Terror Planet
and it's a shame underground German
goremaster filmmaker Andreas Schnaas
wasn't involved as her'd love it.
We have faces torn off as well as melted
Preverted looking body gore
Leg bitten off
Heads blown off
Bodies being ripped apart
Zombies being chopped off and blown up
Someones testicles are cut off (OUCH!!!!)
Lots and lots more too as its totally
gore packed and people with a storng
stomach with not want to watch this movie
but if you're a gorehound, you'll eat it
In Death Proof
a woman is battered up bloodily in a car
and in another car a woman's leg is
chopped off with some other quick gore
scenes by the other passengers.
During the trailer spoofs
there's some perverted gore and lots of
blood too which will gross you out
shows terrific style with his work in Terror
Planet offering a great tribute
to those old low budget drive-in horror
films along adding plenty of
tongue-in-cheek dark comedy too.
He makes the scene truly disturbing when
he directs Naveen Andrews when
he orders his clan of people to castrate
someone as that will make you truly
cringe and squirm.
He also shows a great shot of supporting
actress Stacy Ferguson when she
steps out of her car and it's foggy. You
just know that something is going to
happen and you will jump when it does and
We also have an effective direction with
lead actress Marley Shelton when
she is giving one of her patients some
needles as it looks perfectly comedic
with how it's directed but yet very
intense to those like me who hate getting
Rodriguez directs Shelton
and Josh Brolin perfectly at
their hospital after he finds out she was
cheating on him and is about to kill her
and Shelton shows great
terrifying expressions during this moment
when Brolin's actions are so
cold and deadly.
We have a great shot of the bar-b-q
restaurant and the zombies invading it
too as this involves Jeff Fahey
at being witty too trying to do away the
There terrific dialoque battle scenes
that involves both Freddy Rodriguez
and Rose McGowan since Rodriquez
coaches terrific chemistry with the two.
He also shows great tough out moments
between Quentin Tarrantino and McGowan
in between we have fun fake trailer
spoofs directed by Eli Roth who
is great at coaching a sick comedic one
next was a non stop laughing flick titled
Don't and the last one was a
creative one by Rob Zombie
titled Werewolf Women of the S.S.
as he uses some of his same
actors from Devil's Rejects
but it looks better made as you think
"Damn, too bad this movie isn't
really coming out"
second movie Death Proof
was one of Quentin Tarrantino's worst
efforts during most of this movie as he
just shows boring dialgoues by young cast
members mingling at a bar with Kurt
But then the suspense does happen with Kurt
Russell and supporting actress Rose
McGowan both in a car together as he
makes the emotions just right after
realising that you're driving with a
maniac. This will be a spolier if I
explain it but Tarrantino packed
a punch there.
But then the story gets boring again as
it's new group of people hanging out and
mingling. However, he shows true friend
chemistry that involves cast members Tracie
Thoms, Zoe Bell, Vanessa
Ferlito and Marie Elizabeth
Winstead as they tease one another
at a diner.
We have great suspense when most of them
go on a joyride and stuntwoman actress
Zoe Bell ties herself to the front
of the car while the car is driving fast.
You know something terrible is going to
happen and it almost does when Russell
speeds down the road crashing into
their car which makes you wonder if Zoe's
character is going to survive this
Then Tarrantino shows dynamite
action when the girls seek revenge as he
shows Thoms looking menacing
while she's driving like a maniac and
Zoe really struts her stuff by being
tough and nasty.
We have a cool moment when Russell
gets the crap beat out by them which
We have terrific music for Planet
Terror composed by Graeme
Revell, Robert Rodriguez
and Carl Thiel with the dark
sounds and thumps.
We also have a groovy
soundtrack by artists like actress Rose
McGowan, April March, John Carpenter,
Nouvelle Vague, Dave Dee,
Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Titch, T-Rex,
Eddie Floyd, The Coasters and many

segment 'Death Proof': Hey Warren, is
there anybody in this place you could
vouch for to give me a ride home?
Stuntman Mike: [tosses keys
across table in front of Pam] Fair
lady, your chariot awaits.
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': You've
Stuntman Mike: [chuckles]
Eavesdropping and can't help but hear, I
think I belong in the latter category.
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': So,
uh, "icy hot", you're offering
me a ride home?
Stuntman Mike: I'm offerin' you a
lift, if, when I'm ready to leave, you
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': And
when are you thinking about leaving?
Stuntman Mike: Truthfully, I'm not
thinkin' about it. But when I do, you
will be the first to know.
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': Will
you be able to drive later?
Stuntman Mike: I know looks can be
deceiving, but I'm a teetotaler. I've
been drinking club soda and lime all
night, and now I'm buildin up to my big
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': Which
Stuntman Mike: Virgin Pina Colada.
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': [pause]
Okay. Why would someone who doesn't drink
spend hours at a bar, drinking water?
Stuntman Mike: You know, a bar
offers all kinds of things other than
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': Hmm,
really. Like what?
Stuntman Mike: [pause]
Women. Nacho Grande platters. The
fellowship of some fascinating
individuals, like Warren here.
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': Fair
enough. So what's your name, icy?
Stuntman Mike: Stuntman Mike.
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': [pause]
"Stuntman Mike's" your name?
Stuntman Mike: You can ask
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': Hey
Warren, who is this guy?
Warren: Stuntman Mike.
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': And
who the hell is Stuntman Mike?
Warren: He's a stuntman.
Mike: You know how people say, YOU'RE
OKAY IN MY BOOK, or AND IN MY BOOK THAT'S
NO GOOD. Well, I actually have... a book.
And everybody I ever met goes in this
book. And now I've met you, and... YOU'RE
GOING IN THE BOOK TOO. Unfortunately, now
I'm gonna have to file you under
Mike: Well Pam, which way you goin'
left or right?
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': Right.
Stuntman Mike: Ah, that's too bad.
Pam- segment 'Death Proof': Why?
Stuntman Mike: Well, because there
was a 50/50 shot on whether you'd be
going left. You see, we're both going
left. You could have just as easily been
going left too and if that was the case,
it would have been awhile before you
started getting scared. But since you're
going the other way, I'm afraid you're
gonna have to start getting scared...
I was wondering if my friends and I could
take the car out on our own just to see
if we feel comfortable in it.
Jasper: Why would I do something
stupid like that?
Abernathy: To better sell your
Jasper: How do I know you're not
just gonna steal it?
Abernathy: Four reasons. One: we
are not thieves. Two: that would be rude.
Three: We are staying at the Day's Inn in
town, you can check with them, we are
registered for the next month. Well,
Zoe's not, but Kim and I are so we are
totally track downable.
Jasper: Who's Kim? The colored
Abernathy: Yes, Kim would be the
girl of color. And four and most
importantly, that will give you a chance
to get to know our other friend, Lee.
[points out Lee]
Jasper: She looks kinda familiar
Abernathy: That is because she is
a famous movie star. We are making a
Hollywood movie here in town
Jasper: Why's she dressed like
Abernathy: Because it's a
cheerleader movie and she's one of the
Jasper: What's a cheerleader
Abernathy: A movie about
Jasper: Is it a porno?
Abernathy: [looks at Jasper]
*Yes*! But don't mention it. She's shy.
[jumps up after being thrown from the
hood of the car] I'm ok!
Zoe, the motherfucking cat!
