planet_terror_stillStarring: Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodriguez, Marley Shelton, Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis, Naveen Andrews, Michael Biehn, Jeff Fahey, Fergie, Quentin Tarantino, Michael Parks

Directed by: Robert Rodriguez

R. 86 mins

Originally released as part of Rodriguez and Tarantino’s Grindhouse double-bill (alongside Death Proof), this is an unapologetically exploitative zombie flick. After a dangerous government experiment is unleashed, the world becomes contaminated with a virus that turns humans into bloodthirsty mutants. Mysterious outlaw Wray (Freddy Rodriguez) joins forces with the damaged and sexy stripper, Cherry (Rose McGowan) along with a slew of characters in order to escape the carnage and fly to an area untouched by the virus. It’s excessive, but tons of fun and the offbeat editing will be a treat to B-movie fans. Planet Terror is outrageous in the best possible way – * * * 1/2
