GrindHouse Feature on SciFiMeh
Bulin one of the bad ass members of our community dropped word to me that SCIFi will be airing a GrindHouse sneak peak this weekend. Sunday at 9pm they are showing a Grindhouse preview special during The Dresden Files and Battlestar Galactica. Guess what i will be doing that day? Rocking it on SciFi watching the special!
On a related note, Maverick Records will release the soundtrack to Death Proof — Quentin Tarantino’s half of the new exploitation movie double feature Grindhouse — on April 3, three days before the two films hit theaters on April 6. Best of all we are giving away 2 copies to members of our kick ass community of horror FREAKS. You all dont mind me calling you freaks do you?
The second film, Planet Terror, was directed by Robert Rodriguez. In between the two features, trailers advertising fake films, directed by Eli Roth and Rob Zombie, among others, will be shown.
Death Proof follows Austin's hottest DJ, Jungle Julia (Sydney Tamiia Poitier) as she sets out into the night to unwind with her two friends Shanna (Jordan Ladd) and Arlene (Vanessa Ferlito). Covertly tracking their moves is Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell), a scarred rebel leering from behind the wheel of his muscle car, revving just feet away.

The soundtrack includes classic songs from the ’60s and ’70s, such as “Jeepster” from British glam rock band T Rex, “Staggolee” from San Francisco blues band Pacific Gas & Electric, “Down In Mexico” from doo-wop legends The Coasters, and “Good Love, Bad Love” by Stax R&B legend Eddie Floyd. It also features a haunting composition, entitled “Paranoia Prima,” from legendary Italian film score composer Ennio Morricone. The songs are interspersed with dialogue voiced by the actors including Russell, Rose McGowan, Eli Roth, and Michael Bacall.
