Maverick filmmaker Robert Rodriguez details the violent struggle between a ravenous army of zombie-like humanoids who have taken control of the planet and the remaining survivors who refuse to go down without a fight. A dangerous government experiment has unleashed an abominable contamination that turns normal people into murderous mutants. Now, as an infinitely multiplying horde of frenzied psychotics flood the Texas plains, a dangerous outlaw named Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), a sexy stripper named Cherry (Rose McGowan), an unscrupulous smuggler named Abby (Naveen Andrews), and the curiously incapacitated Dr. Dakota Block (Marley Shelton) must try and make their way to the helicopter that could provide their only means of escaping to a place untouched by this nightmarish scourge that threatens to wipe out all of humankind. This nonstop action-horror hybrid originally was released as part of Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's ambitious Grindhouse double bill. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This flick is nasty, violent, bloody and loud. It has multiple well known actors. It has zombies. It has the funky, old-movie feel to it--and it works. It has explosions. If they would only make an X-Rated version this would be the perfect flick. Robert Rodriguez knows how to make a real movie.
Rodriguez has gone from maverick to icon with this loving embrace of the grindhouse classics. Rose McGowan is deliciously strange and sexy with or without her leg. Pure genius in his grasp of humorous violence and casting. A film not to be missed for fans of blod and bullets.
