Really good book looking into the history of Grindhouse cinema and the conception and production of "Planet Terror" and "Death Proof".
There's more on "Planet Terror", to be fair - it even contains the screenplay. I preferred "Death Proof" as a film and Tarantino as a director so although the there is much less on the Tarantino half of Grindhouse no screenplay as the publishers can no doubt sell that separately , reading about the behind the scenes stuff - particularly the stunts, interviews Really good book looking into the history of Grindhouse cinema and the conception and production of "Planet Terror" and "Death Proof".

This was a really fun read it really is not what you expected it to be, I thought that it would be similar to the Moulin Rouge wherein it would only be discussing how the film was made and notes from the director. But I was pleasantly surprised that suddenly out of nowhere the script of Planet Terror in its entirety was there and the making of the Machete trailer was also there so all in all it was just really really fun.
PS This is not related to the book at all but yeah this whole COVID19 pand This was a really fun read it really is not what you expected it to be, I thought that it would be similar to the Moulin Rouge wherein it would only be discussing how the film was made and notes from the director.

This is the companion book on the making of the movie Grindhouse. A lot of the book didn't sit right with me, you know, the obsessing over all the expensive set and costume design, CGI, and computer aging you're using to make this movie look like a battered 70s film made on a cheap. Hearing the film techs say that the best way to make the film look beaten to crap was often just to take it outside and physically beat it to crap is also such a "Duh! But the bit on Death Proof about it being This is the companion book on the making of the movie Grindhouse.
But the bit on Death Proof about it being a car duel with these old cars, stunt people, and actual stunts instead of effects made me happier contemplating that part of the movie. Charger vs. But the thing you have to browse the book for is the six to eight hilarious pages about the making of Thanksgiving , the preview for a fake early '80s slasher film. They recount the entertaining tale of how the guy behind Hostel: Part 2 squeezed in Thanksgiving after filming Hostel: Part 2 in Prague.
There's the brain-bendingly disturbing picture of the Thanksgiving roast with stuffing coming out his orifices and meat thermometer in his ass. You have the 5 to year-old Czech majorettes in their own uniforms and white boots for the parade filmed at 7 a. Filmmaker to translator: "Make sure they and their parents know there will be blood involved, okay?
The filmmaker hopes that they manage to get the fake blood out of their white boots. So while Rodriguez and Tarantino obsessed over set and costume design and computer-aging the film, the Hostel guy was scrounging for extras and materials in Prague on a strict time limit filming in actual grindhouse style. Bless him. There's some fun stuff in the book about design and cars and what-not, but the creme of the book for me was definitely the few pages and hilarious photos for Thanksgiving.
Jan 22, Jason harris rated it it was amazing. I'm a big fan of B movies both old and new. I'm also familiar with the "grindhouse" theaters of the 70's and 80's. But when I heard that there was a book detailing the behind the scenes action, I think I was more excited for the book than the 2 flicks. This book is awsome. It not only contains behin I'm a big fan of B movies both old and new.
It not only contains behind the scenes photos, but the full script for Planet Terror and the fake trailers. If your a filmmaker or an avid fan of the two directors, then this book will not disappoint.

Just like the movie come in retro packaging, ignoring the usual square format for something closer to the old annual style. Excellent lookinto the creation of what should have been a great idea. Sadly its been shown outside the US as two seprate films. Get the book findout how to do your own A great making of book, but still nowhere near the Monster House book.
Apr 06, Emily added it Recommends it for: tarantino and exploitation film fans. Fantastic behind-the-scenes action with the cast, crew adn directors. Fabulous color movie stills and photos of the set fill this book along with Rodriguez's entire screenplay and never-before seen artwork.
Sep 06, Brad rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: hardcore film geeks. Shelves: film. Great book chronicling the failed experiment to turn everyone in the world into hardcore film geeks. Lots of behind the scene stuff on the two features and the fake trailers and the entire script to Rodriguez's "Planet Terror". May 07, Jamil rated it it was ok.

Grindhouse: The Sleaze-Filled Saga of an Exploitation Double Feature
Quentin Tarantino , Robert Rodriguez. The film Grindhouse gleefully resurrects the theatrical experience of watching back-to-back exploitation movies. Written and directed by two of the genre's most hard-core and best-known fans, the film consists of two short features -- one from Quentin Tarantino and the other by Robert Rodriguez -- as well as a series of lurid trailers for non-existent movies. In the book Grindhouse: The Sleaze-filled Saga of an Exploitation Double Feature, Tarantino and Rodriguez chronicle the film's production from page to screen and everything in between. Featured are Rodriguez's and Tarantino's original screenplays in their entirety, interviews with key cast and crew members, and over photographs and illustrations, including never-before-seen artwork and concept designs.
