Book Description

April 6 2007
The film "Grindhouse "gleefully resurrects the theatrical experience of watching back-to-back "exploitation" movies. Written and directed by two of the genre's most hard-core and best-known fans, the film consists of two short features -- one from Quentin Tarantino and the other by Robert Rodriguez -- as well as a series of lurid trailers for non-existent movies. In the book "Grindhouse: The Sleaze-filled Saga of an Exploitation Double Feature," Tarantino and Rodriguez chronicle the film's production from page to screen and everything in between. Featured are Rodriguez's and Tarantino's original screenplays in their entirety, interviews with key cast and crew members, and over 300 photographs and illustrations, including never-before-seen artwork and concept designs. An exhaustive history of exploitation films, complete with full-color reproductions of classic one-sheets from the directors' private collections, enhances the reader's appreciation of this tasteless, yet highly entertaining and influential genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruised, dinged and beat up Aug. 15 2010
As the story goes, the films of "Grindhouse" were run over, sat on and purposefully abused to create their look. This book has apparently received some of the same treatment - it's edges are dented and bruised to create a vintage, hard-used look. This volume is a great companion to the movies with lots of insider information and behind-the-scenes secrets. Loads of great pictures, interviews and artwork from both productions. I notice that amazon.ca has lowered their price on this item since I made my purchase - at the time that I ordered it, the price of the book plus shipping was significantly less from another seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book RULES!!! April 13 2007
By Wayne S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Wow, I'm full.

They threw in everything but the kitchen sink into this one!

Features the full Planet Terror script--along with the "Machete" script/making of. Bonus feature has Eli Roth talking about his trailer along with the making of/script.

Tons of hot photos featuring the stars, and the actual "Grindhouse" posters. Tons of lobby card pics are here as well.

This is a great addition to your library.

I love this thing!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Behind the scenes packs a wallop April 9 2007
By C. Senhouse - Published on Amazon.com
Shows how hard folks have to work to put their vision on film.

The book details the hugh support network Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino had in putting out their "Grindhouse" experience. There are tons of interviews and many full page pictures detailing how certain things were accomplished in the back to back movies, "Planet Terror" and "Death Proof." Tarantino has a great introduction to the grindhouse movie theaters (drive ins were mentioned as well) experiences in the 70s and early 80s.

I am quite satisfied with this coffee table sized, behind the scenes look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good 'special features' for fans more than film-makers Dec 21 2007
By S. O'Boyle - Published on Amazon.com
I really enjoyed the RR/QT Grindhouse release, so after getting the special editions of both films (the extra disc best buy ones in a tin case!), I just had to grab this book too. The book reads like the DVDs' special bonus features play. Interviews with cast and crew, nice on-set color photos, and some 'promo-art' pages (the kind you want to tear out and put on your wall) make up the book with the inclusion of Planet Terror and Machete screenplays. Death Proof, Thanksgiving, and Machete each have their own sections; also a RR/QT POV exploitation film experience discussion is included. Each film has a breakdown of Stunts, Special Effects, and the main players. The layout fits with the films' atmosphere, with psuedo-worn pages and nice graphics. The book is manufactured well, sturdy binding with a nice durable semi-matte hardcover.

So for the film's fans who want a little extra bonus features this is a good buy. There is some film-making insight, but this is more of a glimpse, and some of it is in video form on the DVDs. It supports the involved, and since its box-office revenue was less than desired, I loved these films and the idea behind their conception and would love more of them. So please, if you love these films, buy this book, buy the DVDs, and hey even push your local niche-theaters to rerun Grindhouse come halloween! -SOB

5.0 out of 5 stars Grindhouse Jan. 30 2009
By N. Opiola - Published on Amazon.com
If you loved the movie - you'll love this book. I actually bought this book before I saw the movie in anticipation and was very happy. It is chock full of beautiful pictures including the ones of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as seen in the movie in the magazine Allure. Jungle Julia's billboards are in here(small) but still in nice enough quality to make up for the size. Pictures of all different kinds of posters are in here...they seriously did not skimp on the pictures in here. Definately worth buying.
