Finally I can bring you clips and some of featurettes from the two-disc Planet Terror DVD! Both Riikka and I have been having problems with our video editing and encoding software for months, but we think (*crosses fingers*) we have them worked out now. So I have finally gotten around to making the clips from Planet Terror, which so many of you were asking for. It was incredibly hard choosing scenes because Rose is just amazing in the entire movie, but these is merely a teaser of the goodness of Cherry Darling! If you have not seen the film, seriously, what are you waiting for?! You can pick up a copy right over on Amazon. Download all the film clips and some of the DVD featurettes trimmed down in the video vault.

I have also added a massive new batch of ear candy on the audios page. 😉 Rose has so many funny and memorable lines from her films, I personally love popping them on my iPod (or listing on the PC) so I thought others would want to do the same! More of these shall come with time. Anyways, happy downloading!

Some sites have published their annual “Best and Worst” of 2007 lists and sitting on many is Grindhouse! I know it’s personally my favorite movie of last year. The movie also sits at #170 of’s top 250 movies of all time. Here are a few excerpts as well as scans from Entertainment Weekly‘s Best of 2007 December 28th issue and Wizard – May 2007.

It’s a real shame that Grindhouse performed so poorly, although it’s nice to see Tarantino and Rodriguez get a dose of reality. Although the films don’t really have a good repeat value, the experience of seeing this in the theater with the faux trailer was more than epic. It was the experience of a lifetime… too bad you all missed it. Suckers.

From Entertainment Weekly
Its commercial failure is easily explained: In the ADD era, asking audiences to sit through a three-hour double feature of droolingly fetishized meta-trash was madness. Yet Grindhouse is a scuzz marvel, a feast for B-movie junkies. Robert Rodriguez’s zombie orgy Planet Terror, starring Rose McGowan and her machine-gun leg, may be the slyest genre send-up ever; it’s the Far From Heaven of schlock, with a wink of a giggle embedded in every faux-grimy frame. As for Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, it’s more than the most stupendous car chase since… you name it. It’s also a rock-on vision of sexual warfare, with Kurt Russell’s sleazy Stuntman Mike using his demolition-mobile as a carnal battering ram, only to run headlong into a new age of much faster pussycats.

Coming March 6 to region 2 is the 6-disc DVD set of Grindhouse, which you’ll have to import from Japan. This release looks to be better than the US DVD release, so this is probably the edition to invest in – even though it still looks disappointing. It looks as if many of the features have already been used, while other look like they were pulled from the press kit for the theatrical release of the film. But on disc five is the full theatrical cut that we’re hoping includes the faux trailers!

And as we reported earlier, Robert Rodriguez also mentioned on DVD commentary for Planet Terror, that a two disc version of Grindhouse will be coming to the US shortly. Still no word on it’s possible features except that it will include a Rodriguez DVD favorite – a cooking school;  “texas barbeque style.”

Read on for the Japanese 6-Disc DVD specs, thanks to for the cool news!

Read on for the specs.

Rose McGowan returns to the big screen with mutant zombie flick, Planet Terror, revisiting the gory days of grindhouse. Damon Wise meets her

It’s a sunny day, a month before her 34th birthday, and Rose McGowan is sitting in the grounds of a five-star hotel in Locarno, Switzerland, looking forward to the European premiere of her latest movie, due to take place the following night, under the stars in the old town square. “It’ll probably make me feel like I’m in Cinema Paradiso,” she muses. “But with swearing,” she adds. “And machine guns.”

The film she’s talking about is Planet Terror, Robert Rodriguez’s half of the ill-fated double-bill Grindhouse project, co-directed with Quentin Tarantino, that tanked at the US box office after its release in March. Unlike Tarantino’s Death Proof, Planet Terror offers straight genre thrills, with Austin, Texas, falling victim to a gas that turns its citizens into zombies. McGowan – now dating Rodriguez after a scandal that could have sunk the movie, given that the director’s wife was co-producing it – plays Cherry, a go-go dancer who loses a leg in the onslaught and replaces it with a huge M4 assault rifle to do battle with the undead. She is, in short, “kickass”, a word she has been trying to define to a German journalist without success. “Who knows what it is in German?!” she wonders.

Unfortunately the Scream 2007 award for Scream Queen went to Kate Beckinsale for Vacancy. Well, in our eyes Rose McGowan is the true Scream Queen! She did not attend the awards show this year but it was still a glorious night for Grindhouse as the double-feature won the awards for Best Director (Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez), Best Scream-play and Most Memorable Mutilation (car crash)! Congratulations to the Grindhouse team for the well deserved wins!

Today (October 16) is the day a lot of us have been eagerly waiting for, as Robert Rodriguez’s half of Grindhouse, segment Planet Terror finally comes to R1 DVD. Hee! Be sure to pick up your own copy over at Amazon or other retailers!

I also thought I would mention that if you buy your DVD copy at Best Buy you can also pick the Planet Terror Exclusive Steelcase (which is the exact same version as the two disc), it includes a bonus disc including: Grindhouse 101: Q&A with writer/director Robert Rodriguez at the South by Southwest Film Festival.

For all non-Rose fans you really must see Rose’s star turning performance as Cherry Darling! If it doesn’t make you a fan, I honestly don’t know what will. We already have all of the captures from the DVD footage in the gallery and clips will follow soon.

I have uploaded the very brief interview clip Rose gave to, it recently just aired on TV for the Planet Terror DVD and I just so happen to stumble upon it and recorded if for the site. This was filmed during the Grindhouse press junkets around March so it’s not particularly new but nevertheless it’s our adorable Rose! Captures are also in the gallery.
