DVD Watch: Planet Terror

Planet Terror is one half of Grindhouse, the zombie half to be specific. There's honestly not much to say about it above that - it's a well produced, over-the-top, moderately creepy zombie flick. It's a lot of fun - but I'm also glad this was our late, late nighter because it didn't require a lot of attention. It's rather annoying they split the double feature into two, though, because you really do get only a portion of the feel they were going for with the experience.

Still, it's a lot of fun and a better zombie film than most - maybe not 28 Days Later but certainly 28 Weeks Later.

I agree that 28 Weeks Later was a failed sequel to one of the best zombie flicks ever. But I do think you're wrong about splitting up Grindhouse into two full length features.

Both "Death Proof" and "Planet Terror" work better longer. Here's my two cents (plus the movie trailer)
