Grindhouse (Special Edition) (Directors: Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, 2007) Blu-ray Release Date: October 5, 2010
Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez combine their directing and writing skills for the first t
ime ever in the Double Feature GRINDHOUSE. These exciting and exhilarating movies are now together in one packaging, and both are the original theatrical versions. Of course you can not forget the several faux trailers before and between the two films, Rodriguez’s Planet Terror and Tarantino’s Death Proof. Planet Terror is a wonderfully sleazy, zombie exploitation film and Death Proof is a dialog heavy serial killer film. The two films are very different in style and tone but are equally worthy of repeat viewing.
