Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
An homage to exploitation B-movie thrillers that combines two feature-length segments into one double-bill designed to replicate the grind house theatergoing experience of the 70s and 80s. In "Death Proof," a psycho named Stuntman Mike stalks and kills beautiful women with his car. In "Planet Terror," a small-town sheriffs' department has to deal with an outbreak of murderous, infected people called "sickos." A gun-legged woman named Cherry and her martial arts-wielding partner take on the zombie army. The two films will be fused together by fake movie trailers.
The sleaze-filled saga of an exploitation double feature.

- Stuntman Mike: Do I frighten you? [Arlene nods] Stuntman Mike: Is it my scar? Arlene: It's your car. Stuntman Mike: Yeah, I know. I'm sorry. It's my mom's car.
Pam: Take a picture, it lasts longer. Stuntman Mike: What? Pam: That table. Seems to keep them getting your attention. Stuntman Mike: Is that the girl from the billboard outside? Pam: Yup. Stuntman Mike: She sure is a striking looking woman. Look at that hair. Pam: Lots of leave-in conditioner. Stuntman Mike: Is that jealousy I detect? Pam: Hardly. But if you wanna get with Jungle Julia, there's a real easy way to do that. Stuntman Mike: Yeah? And what would that be? Pam: Get famous. You won't have to find her, she'll find you. And you don't even wanna know what she did for that billboard. Enjoy it cocksucker, you've earned it. Stuntman Mike: What did she ever do to you? Pam: We went to school together, from kindergarten to high school, that's what she did to me. She was her height right now at twelve. She was a monster! Half the guy she still fucks from the old class she used to beat up and terrorize in the fifth grade. Stuntman Mike: And I see she used to beat you up and take your chocolate milk. Pam: That pituitary case might've kicked my ass a couple of times... Sorry, I'm built like a girl and not a black man, but I'd die before I ever gave Julia Lucai my chocolate milk.
Abernathy: I was wondering if my friends and I could take the car out on our own just to see if we feel comfortable in it. Jasper: Why would I do something stupid like that? Abernathy: To better sell your automobile. Jasper: How do I know you're not just gonna steal it? Abernathy: Four reasons. One: we are not thieves. Two: that would be rude. Three: we are staying at the Day's Inn in town, you can check with them, we are registered for the next month. Well, Zoe's not, but Kim and I are so we are totally track-downable. Jasper: Who's Kim? The colored girl? Abernathy: Yes, Kim would be the girl of color. And four, and most importantly, that will give you a chance to get to know our other friend, Lee. [points out Lee] Jasper: She looks kinda familiar Abernathy: That is because she is a famous movie star. We are making a Hollywood movie here in town Jasper: Why's she dressed like that? Abernathy: Because it's a cheerleader movie and she's one of the cheerleaders. Jasper: What's a cheerleader movie? Abernathy: A movie about cheerleaders. Jasper: Is it a porno? Abernathy: [looks at Jasper] *Yes*! But don't mention it. She's shy.
Cherry: It's go go, not cry cry.
[as Wray is dying] Cherry: [crying] No... you can't go. Two against the world, remember? Wray: There will be, I promise Wray: [touching her stomach] I never miss.
- Mickey Rourke, Sylvester Stallone and Ving Rhames were other actors said to be considered for the part of "Stuntman Mike" before Kurt Russell stepped into the role.
When the car crashes through the sign for a theater, the movies playing are Scary Movie 4 (2006) and Wolf Creek (2005).
The movie was split up for some theaters overseas, because most non-English speaking countries might not understand the tradition behind the "grindhouse" double-feature and the underlying concept might be lost. The two movies were called: "Grindhouse: Planet Terror" and "Grindhouse: Death Proof".
Zoe Bell, who plays the character Zoe in the segment "Death Proof", does all her own stunts (she was the stunt double for Uma Thurman in the Kill Bill series).
In the Death Proof (2007) segment, a conversation takes place between Abby, Zoe, Kim and Lee in which it is revealed that Abby's last boyfriend, a film director, cheated with on her with a stunt double for Daryl Hannah. Monica Staggs, who plays Lanna Frank in the first half of Death Proof (2007), was the stunt double for Daryl Hannah in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004).
