Planet Terror

Time Out says

Quentin Tarantino’s contribution to the ill-fated ‘Grindhouse’ double feature, ‘Death Proof’, has already been released in its own right; Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Planet Terror’ is the other half. Where Tarantino’s piece was, for better or worse, a formal variation on several genre themes, this is a straightforward zombie pastiche, with a Texas hospital the epicentre for an epidemic of flesh-guzzling mania sparked by a military experiment gone wrong. Freddy Rodriguez, Josh Brolin and Marley Shelton are among the gang of hold-outs, though it’s Rose McGowan and her machine-gun prosthetic leg that steal the show. Gross, grimy, occasionally funny but not terribly satisfying.
