Two directors with a huge cult following -- Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino -- roll out a horror double bill that pays homage to grind house cinema, complete with an intermission screening fake trailers. Freddy Rodriguez, Rose McGowan, Marley Shelton, the Black Eyed Peas' Stacy Ferguson and Josh Brolin co-star in Rodriguez's Planet Terror. Tarantino's Death Proof features Rosario Dawson, Danny Trejo and Naveen Andrews.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Rodriguez's zombie movie is a good homage to crappy horror flicks that don't deserve such affection, but Tarantino's muscle-car thrill-ride is much better. It's riveting and totally unique, and the plot's wild acceleration from 0 to 60 is a great rush.
