DVD - 2007
Average Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
Planet Terror
A small town sheriff's department has to deal with an outbreak of murderous, infected people called "sickos." Cherry Darling meets up again with her old lover, El Wray, just as their Texas town is being overrun by "sickos" with festering sores turning them into zombies. Cherry has El Wray's jacket, which she took with her when she left and he keeps trying to explain how he looked for it for two weeks and she keeps interrupting his story. Gun-legged Cherry and one-man wrecking crew El Wray try to save the world from a horde of flesh-eating zombies.

This movie can be summed up in one word BADASS. It's fun and clever and well, badass...

So many retro influences showcased within this movie from previous cinematic eras and yet it works cohesively into an entertaining golden nougat of appalling ooze and sick
Even tomato soup makes you squirm in this movie
Outrageous gore and cult macabre definitely for the fainting type and those that want to jump start their metabolism

Filmed in the "grindhouse" fashion with intentionally bad plot and overacting. Ungodly amount of gore. Some really disgusting scenes. The dialogue I loved from Deathproof was NOT present in this. However, the movie made up for it in over-the-top action. The action and gore made this extremely watchable and entertaining. This is the "horror" companion to Machete.

Disappointed. The movie could be better. Too much gore.

Quite the gory romp, replete with odd ball performances and snappy, Tarantino-polished dialogue. This is the perfect example of a movie that would divide opinions even within like-minded groups of friends: you'll either dig it, or not.

But, if you have the morbid curiosity to find out how a one legged stripper can save civilization, check it out today!

PS Almost worth watching for the infamous fake trailer for "Machete" that inspired the feature length movie released subsequently.
