Official Art and Specs: The Grindhouse Experience on Blu-ray

It’s finally happening, folks! Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s celebration of gory B-movies, Grindhouse, will be coming home to Blu-ray high definition this fall, complete and with faux trailers intact, and we’ve got all of the details for you!

From the Press Release
An exhilarating homage to the titillating B-movies of the 60s and 70s, Grindhouse, a double billing featuring Academy Award winner Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof and Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror bursts onto two-disc Blu-Ray on October 5 from Vivendi Entertainment and The Weinstein Company. Debuting for the first time in high definition and in its original theatrical exhibition format, the presentation starts with the deliciously over-the-top horror flick Planet Terror, followed by an intermission featuring three gritty trailers and concluding with the ultra-intense vehicular slasher film Death Proof. The set features over two hours of brand new bonus material including a 10-Minute Cooking School feature with Rodriguez, five features on the trailers including an extended trailer and making-ofs, deleted scenes and much more.

“Planet Terror – Married doctors William and Dakota Block (Josh Brolin and Marley Shelton) find their graveyard shift inundated with townspeople ravaged by gangrenous sores and a suspiciously vacant look in their eyes. Among the wounded is Cherry (Rose McGowan), a go-go dancer whose leg was ripped from her body during a roadside attack. Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), her former significant other, is at her side and watching her back. Cherry may be down, but she hasn’t danced her last number. As the invalids quickly become enraged aggressors, Cherry and Wray lead a team of accidental warriors into the night, hurtling towards a destiny that will leave millions infected, countless dead, and a lucky few struggling to find the last safe corner of PLANET TERROR.

Death Proof – A creepy stunt driver whose taste for stalking lovely young ladies gets him into big trouble when he tangles with the wrong gang of badass babes. Their confrontation escalates to an extended mano-a-mano car chase with one of the girls strapped to the hood of a thundering Dodge Challenger.”

      The Machete trailer has always been a part of “Planet Terror,” which is why it’s not listed with the other trailers, which appeared between the two features.

      Though I do not own a Blu-Ray player yet, I will buy this in case it’s only a limited run.

    • fceurich39

      • Tshoffie

        if it includes the machete trailer why isnt it listed in the features with the other trailers…Anyways im gonna pass on this because i already have the japanese 6 disc set of grindhouse with all these features

      So, does this only have the theatrical versions, or does it have the full version of each movie, too?

        Reading is not only fun, but rewarding as well.

      So glad it’s finally happening. Would like to have seen them use the “double feature” poster for the cover art though!
