Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez Talk GrindHouseMeh
What is Grindhouse? Directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez discuss the films that inspired their horror double feature GRINDHOUSE over at Yahoo. I wonder why they keep giving yahoo all this good stuff while ignoring the sites that are really into this kind of thing and cover it day to day? Go check it out.
Grind House – noun – A downtown movie theater - in disrepair since its glory days as a movie palace of the '30s and '40s - known for "grinding out" non-stop double-bill programs of B-movies.
From groundbreaking directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez comes the ultimate film experience: a double-bill of thrillers that will recall both filmmakers’ favorite exploitation films. Grind House will be presented as one full-length feature comprised of two individual films helmed separately by each director.
Tarantino’s film, Death Proof, is a rip-roaring slasher flick where the killer pursues his victims with a car rather than a knife, while Rodriguez’s film explores an alien world eerily familiar to ours in Planet Terror. Welcome to the grind house - it’ll tear you in two.
