The original theatrical version of this double-barreled homage to 1960s-70s exploitation cinema includes Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror, a gore-soaked vision of zombie apocalypse, paired with Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, a celebration of gritty action films like Vanishing Point and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Accompanied by fake trailers from Eli Roth, Edgar Wright, and Rob Zombie, this experiment in nostalgia for the double feature inaugurated a recent cycle of retro-styled exploitation films and has renewed popular interest in the decrepit inner-city theatres where sleazy genre films once played.
