Planet Terror (2007)
Movie Review by The Cryptkeeper
11.05.07

Planet Terror (2007) After an experimental bio nerve gas is accidentally released at a remote U.S. military base in Texas, those exposed to the gas turn into flesh-eating, mutating zombies out to kill. An assortment of various people who include stripper Cherry (Rose McGowen), her shady mechanic ex-boyfriend Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), a strong-willed doctor (Marley Shelton), the local sheriff, and an assortment of various people must join forces to survive the night as the so-called "sickos" threaten to take over the whole town and the world. -netflix

Originally, this was Robert Rodriguez's contribution to the theatrical release of the Grindhouse Double Feature. However, Planet Terror made it's way to DVD as a stand-alone. Gonna have to say that is my biggest complaint about this one... it should have been released in it's original form. I understand that the overly medicated, A.D.D. crowd of these times cannot sit through a double feature... but why do the rest of us have to suffer for that? Let them pop more pills, or just get their ants-in-the-pants asses up and walk out... who cares. Don't make me miss out on the good stuff because little Johnny Hyperactive can't focus.

But, I digress. Planet Terror was a very good zombie movie. Not that much of an original storyline, but they did a great job of taking a formulaic storyline and making it into an original work. The gore and blood was off the chart... and while over the top at times... it still looked pretty realistic. I do have more complaints though... one being that we didn't get to see Rose McGowen naked. Another being those "old film" touches they added throughout. It would have been a nice touch to make it look like an older film had they actually taken the modern technology out of it... like cell phones, PDA's and those annoying little "pocket rocket" motorcycles. In the same area of complaints... that little missing reel part left me with mixed feelings. I liked the way that continued the old 70's, low-budget film feel... but at the same time... we lost alot of the story and never learned why Wray was once known as "El-Wray".

All whining aside, this was a very entertaining horror flick and I would recommend it to zombie film fans, Robert Rodriguez fans and all other horror fans for that matter. Go out and get it if you have not yet seen it.
