Grindhouse Presents Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror in October
By M&C News Sep 20, 2007, 23:00 GMT
Busting at the seams with outrageous action sequences, deliciously over-the-top characters and gross special effects, Robert Rodriguez’s (Sin City, Once Upon a Time in Mexico) Grindhouse Presents, Planet Terror explodes onto DVD as a two-disc extended and unrated edition on October 16th from Genius Products LLC. and The Weinstein Company.
Rose McGowan (“Charmed,” Scream, The Black Dahlia) and Freddy Rodriguez (Bobby, “Six Feet Under”) give stunning performances as go-go girl-turned-vigilante Cherry Darling and one-man wrecking crew El Wray as they try to save the world from a horde of flesh-eating zombies.
Married doctors William and Dakota Block (Brolin and Shelton) find their graveyard shift inundated with townspeople ravaged by gangrenous sores and a suspiciously vacant look in their eyes. Among the wounded is Cherry (Rose McGowan), a go-go dancer whose leg was ripped from her body during a roadside attack.
Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), her former significant other, is at her side and watching her back. Cherry may be down, but she hasn’t danced her last number. As the invalids quickly become enraged aggressors, Cherry and Wray lead a team of accidental warriors into the night, hurtling towards a destiny that will leave millions infected, countless dead, and a lucky few struggling to find the last safe corner of Planet Terror.
