Cherry Darling meets up again with her old lover, El Wray, just as their Texas town is being overrun by "sickos" with festering sores turning them into zombies. Cherry has El Wray's jacket, which she took with her when she left and he keeps trying to explain how he looked for it for two weeks and she keeps interrupting his story. Gun-legged Cherry and one-man wrecking crew El Wray try to save the world from a horde of flesh-eating zombies.

A great rendition of a grindhouse film! It's supposed to gory, ridiculous, and over the top. It's just how grindhouse works. I loved it, and Rose McGowan made a great main character. Lots of zombies, great music, and personally, I found the gore hilarious. I ended up buying it to watch again.

I couldn’t finish it...Too much gore. I mean, LOTS of gore. So much that it felt unnecessary and overwhelmingly distracting from the plot. (Whatever that originally was anyway....)

If you like an obscene amount of blood and guts you’ll enjoy this.

Pretty Rose McGowan dances and fights ghouls. Its a remake of gore zombie movies, not a spoof. Kind of similar to Dawn of the Dead. Plenty of gore for gore's sake. Even a worse film then the B side co-movie Death Proof. Not worth the price of free.

For those of you unfamiliar with the genre, “grindhouse” is a collective term used to describe the glut of tawdry exploitation films released back in the 70s and 80s which screened as double bills in the nation’s seedier cinemas. Revelling in blood and boobs they were generally low-budget productions that lured young men into the theatre with promises of explicit violence, hot chicks, and lots of softcore humping. In this brilliant homage, writer/director Robert Rodriguez has taken the genre to dizzying new heights while still maintaining the guts ’n sleaze factor for a new generation to enjoy. Lots of cheesy cheap-ass gore with exploding heads and gutted torsos augmented by a script rife with clichés and one-line groaners (“She could suck the bend out of a river”) and it’s all served up with such low-brow panache that you can’t help but laugh along with it—those scenes of Rose McGowan flying through the air, her missing leg now replaced by a high-calibre machine gun-cum-grenade launcher spraying death in every direction, are surely some of cinema’s all time high/lows! Rodriguez obviously sat transfixed through a few grinders himself for he captures the look perfectly right down to the celluloid scratches and spliced jump cuts which suggest film stock that has been played long past its expiry date. Spectacular explosions, repulsive special effects, and a slew of surprise celebrity cameos (Quentin Tarantino as an oversexed zombie soldier?!) take me back to my own adolescent days when I used to sneak across the border to Detroit in order to see these films in all their uncensored glory. I guess they really can make them like they used to…..if that’s even a good thing.

If you don't like gore, don't watch Grindhouse movies. It's that simple. And if you're going to be literal about everything, I'd recommend watching documentaries for the rest of your life.

One of the worst movie I've ever seen.
How can this woman know what to fire? bullets or RPGs. She was like 50 feet up in the air and when she landed, she didn't even get hurt. Lame.

She got her leg cut off and was walking/running like nothing happened.

This movie can be summed up in one word BADASS. It's fun and clever and well, badass...

So many retro influences showcased within this movie from previous cinematic eras and yet it works cohesively into an entertaining golden nougat of appalling ooze and sick
Even tomato soup makes you squirm in this movie
Outrageous gore and cult macabre definitely for the fainting type and those that want to jump start their metabolism
