Synopsis


Planet Terror
Maverick filmmaker Robert Rodriguez details the violent struggle between a ravenous army of zombie-like humanoids who have taken control of the planet and the remaining survivors who refuse to go down without a fight. A dangerous government experiment has unleashed an abominable contamination that turns normal people into murderous mutants. Now, as an infinitely multiplying horde of frenzied psychotics flood the Texas plains, a dangerous outlaw named Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), a sexy stripper named Cherry (Rose McGowan), an unscrupulous smuggler named Abby (Naveen Andrews), and the curiously incapacitated Dr. Dakota Block (Marley Shelton) must try and make their way to the helicopter that could provide their only means of escaping to a place untouched by this nightmarish scourge that threatens to wipe out all of humankind. This nonstop action-horror hybrid originally was released as part of Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's ambitious Grindhouse double bill. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    My favorite films of 07'

    The steelbook adds a nice little touch you get the free bonus disc which includes 47 minutes of Q&A type stuff with director Robert Rodriguez. I would recommend the steelbook version for the true fans of the movie. Although the case is much more appealing to the eye the only other difference is the bonus disc. I've been waiting for months for this DVD realese. I have to say I was a little specticle at first for them being released seperatly. I think it was a great idea now they are two way differant films and to get the real feel they should be seperate. Plus you get to see scenes that weren't in the original you saw in theatres! I would highly suggest if your a fan of this movie. Or even a fan of Rodriguez's work get the steelbook!

    AndrewR34

    Sit Back and enjoy the fun of this hilarious and action packed gore-thrill ride. In the small town of Austin, Texas at an old military base, a Chemical called DC2 is released into the air, causing the entire town to become flesh eating zombies. and only a few in this small town are strong enough to survive the outbreak: Cherry Darling, a Go Go Dancer, is a stripper with an altitude who takes no S*&% from anybody around and kicks A%& on the Side. El Wray, A former Military Man who is unstoppable with a gun. Dr. Dakota Block, An anesthesiologist with a Deadly Skill with a Needle. This movie is probily one of the best comedies of the year even though categorized as a horror movie. U will be Laughing From The beginning To the End.

    For any Rodriguez fan out there you will enjoy this very stylish 80's vibe horror flick. Its a unique zombie flick with a star studded cast that includes Rose McGowan, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Rebel Rodriguez, Marley Shelton, Freddy Rodriguez & Stacey Ferguson. This film is a must for all horror fanatics out there. Its not for everyone and definitely not for children! The blood is great and as for character development you won't sit there guessing thinking that character was a waste of time. I highly recommend it and definitely recommend you check out Death Proof before seeing this fill,. All I will say is that you will see familiar characters..

    So how exclusive are we talking?

    After searching a bit, I was able to nab this steelbook edition at my local Best Buy yesterday, on the day of release. There were only a couple copies left. I was also able to grab the steelbook version of Death Proof the day that came out. I'm getting the impression these are pretty rare -- anyone have an idea how rare they really are? Btw, I love the movie. It was amazing as part of that Grindhouse experience in theaters but still holds up quite well on its own on dvd, with seemingly a lot more gore as well. And as with nearly all Robert Rodriguez movies, there are plenty of excellent extras, including the trailer for Machete!

    Great Entertainment

    Are you looking for mindless entertainment? Planet Terror is for you. I really enjoyed this portion of Grindhouse because of its high action content. Robert Rodriguez is a brilliant director, who really taps into his inner filmbuff and creates a highly enjoyable film. The extras enhance this film by providing the viewer with an insight into the efforts that go into bringing a solid film like this to the big screen. Planet Terror is definately for fans of Rodriguez, McGowan, and action-hooror films. Highly recommended!

    Terror isn't a zombie movie rather a infection movie people get boils/lesions go crazy and infect other people, if it wasn't for Tarantino's "style" this movie and over all plot would be a 2/5 movie. Tarantino with his over the top gore, and the grind house film grain drive in style makes this movie really enjoyable.

    I saw this movie as part of the Grindhouse Double Feature with DeathProof. To me this was the better half of the double feature it is full of action, horror, romance that you can ask for in a movie. I can't wait for it to be released on DVD tomorrow I am definitely buying this on dvd and I think everyone should too you won't be disappointed one bit.
