Planet Terror (2007)

()

Action, Adventure, Comedy |

Planet Terror is a American horror comedy film written, directed, photographed and co-edited by Robert Rodriguez. It stars Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodriguez, Josh Brolin, Marley Shelton, Naveen Andrews, Michael Biehn, Jeff Fahey, Stacy Ferguson, and Bruce Willis. The plot follows a group of people attempting to survive an onslaught of zombie-like creatures as they feud with a military unit. The film was released theatrically in North America alongside Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof as part of the double feature Grindhouse.

Released on April 6, 2007, Grindhouse ticket sales were significantly below box office analysts’ expectations, despite mostly positive reviews. Outside the U.S and released separately, Planet Terror and Death Proof screened in extended versions. Two soundtracks were also released for the features and include music and audio snippets from the film. Planet Terror was released on DVD in the United States and Canada on October 23, 2007.

In rural Texas, go-go dancer Cherry Darling, resigning from her low-paying job, runs into her mysterious ex-boyfriend El Wray at the Bone Shack, a restaurant owned by brothers J.T. and Sheriff Hague. Meanwhile, the demented Lt. Muldoon and his men are making a transaction with chemical engineer Abby for mass quantities of DC2 (codename “Project Terror”), a deadly biochemical agent. When Muldoon learns that Abby has an extra supply, he attempts to take Abby hostage. The latter intentionally releases the gas into the air, mutating most of the town’s residents into deformed zombies. The infected townspeople are treated by the sinister Dr. William Block and his unhappy, unfaithful wife, Dakota, at a local hospital.
