Format: Hardcover
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 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.

HASH(0x9e96c360) out of 5 stars This book RULES!!! April 13 2007
By Wayne S. - Published on
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!!!!

HASH(0x9e96c78c) out of 5 stars Behind the scenes packs a wallop April 9 2007
By C. Senhouse - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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.

HASH(0x9e96c7e0) out of 5 stars Good 'special features' for fans more than film-makers Dec 21 2007
By S. O'Boyle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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

HASH(0x9e96cb28) out of 5 stars FANTASTIC MOVIE!! Do NOT listen to someone whose User ID name is Pink Ipod!!!! April 12 2007

This movie is extremely entertaining and daring - I applaud the filmmakers for doing what they do. This book is a companion guide to the film. Beautiful photos, insight and artwork. Highly Recommended!!
HASH(0x9e96cd74) out of 5 stars An incredible look at an incredible double feature June 16 2011
By Supanerd01 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful hardcover book, and just like the movies, it's dotted with fake ageing - corners look torn and creased, but the printing is still perfect and stunning

There is a LOT of really interesting info in here - from the Planet Terror screenplay, to interviews with a lot of special effects guys, detailing many of the stunts and crashes, and how they were performed and filmed. There are also tons of images taken from the film and the development.

Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino talk a lot about their inspirations and thought processes behind the madcap action too.

If you're a fan of the movies, you will LOVE this book. Highly recommended.
