Start Getting Excited About Grindhouse NOW!

Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's new film, Grindhouse (or Grind House - I've seen it spelled both ways) is going to be ace. It's split into two segments. Tarantino’s half is called Death Proof, a slasher film that stars Kurt Russell as a psychotic stuntman.

Rodriguez tackles Planet Terror, a zombie film that features Rose McGowan as a stripper with one lig. McGowan explains, "Eventually she's called up to save the universe," says McGowan of Cherry, "So she gets a machine gun leg." A machine gun leg. How can a film featuring a stripper with a machine gun leg fail to be one of the best movies of all time?

Running between the two halves will be a series of spoof adverts for fake exploitation pictures, directed again by Tarantino, Rodriguez, Rob Zombie (House of 1000 Corpses), Eli Roth (Hostel) and the UK’s fantastic Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead).

The ideal place to watch this is a provincial flea pit cinema, and with a release date of late spring, you’ve just about got time to find a perfect setting. And to brush up on your grind house cinema knowledge with this book Sleazoid Express: A Mind-twisting Tour Through the Grindhouse Cinema of Times Square
