Grindhouse is a film that both Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriquez have been working on since the Spring of 2006. It consists of two segments, Death Proof, a slasher film written and directed by Tarantino, and Planet Terror, a zombie film, written and directed by Rodriguez.


Both segments are two completely different films that will be seperated by trailers for fake movies. It sounds like an interesting idea. I’m not sure if anything like this has ever been done so it will be cool to see how it turns out. Both directors have great styles and alot of talent so I’m expecting these to turn out pretty good. I’m not a huge fan of either genre but I think they may be able to do it right. I mean, I wasn’t a fan of middle aged white women ninja assassins until I saw Kill Bill, so I will give it a shot. Tarantino should be a pretty recognizable name for most people but if you haven’t heard of Rodriguez, he directed Sin City. If you haven’t seen that, do yourself a favor and go see it.
