Grindhouse: Planet Terror and Death Proof
Grindhouse is a 2007 anthology film co-written, produced and directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. The film's title derives from the U.S. film industry term "grindhouse", which refers to a movie theater specializing in B movies, often exploitation films, shown in a multiple-feature format.
Planet Terror: revolves around an outfit of rebels attempting to survive an onslaught of zombie-like creatures as they feud with a military unit.
Death Proof: focuses on a misogynistic, psychopathic stunt man who targets young women, murdering them with his "death proof" stunt car. Each feature is preceded by faux trailers of exploitation films in other genres that were developed by other directors.
