Those horrible yet sometimes entertaining B-Movies of the 70's
returns in this current incarnation called Planet Terror with
Director Robert Rodriguez paying homage to his favourite B-movies
with this old-fashioned zombie film.
Rose McGowan plays Cherry, a go-go dancer whose night is interrupted
by a vicious zombie attack that leaves her missing a leg. Her
ex-boyfriend Wray takes charge, fashioning her a new leg from a
machine gun and killing zombies along the way.
Planet Terror is a satisfying homage to the horror and exploitation
films that once played in grimy fleapits across the country.
Rodriguez splashes plenty of blood, guts and gore across the screen,
while also taking the plot into some enjoyably bizarre territory.
with Death Proof, Planet Terror was released as part of the "Grindhouse"
double feature, however in Australia, it skipped most cinemas and
landed on DVD. Definitely the more entertaining of the two, Planet
Terror is a classic!
