Oh yaeh Baby...

This is my Faverite Hardcore R movie what's more better than blood " gore and babes in leather Boots? Some nippels are shown a stripper in high heels dances on a pole (pleasure for the guy by the way) but a teens movie Realy good and entertaining.

Good movie for horror-comedy lovers

It does have violence but there is the edited version on tv with little language but still violence but kids today like violence so let your 11+ watch it

Rodriguez' half of Grindhouse is superb, but has lots of blood and guts. Mature teens and up!

"Planet Terror" is a Grindhouse movie by Robert Rodriguez released in 2007. ---------------------------- In 2007, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez released the double feature "Grindhouse" in American theatres. Two full-length feature films at the price of one, recreating the look of old exploitation films. Due to it failing at the box office, since many people did not get the idea of what a grindhouse movie is, the movies were released seperately elsewhere in the world and on DVD, in extended cuts. "Planet Terror" is Robert Rodriguez' half of Grindhouse. And it is the better half. Simply for being what makes an exploitation film: a lot of fun! Yes, "Planet Terror" does not have any deeper meaning or intelligent plot, but overall, it IS a grindhouse film. It is refreshing and entertaining, not taking itself too seriously with many memorable scenes and propably the most abstruse leg prosthesis ever seen in a film. Robert Rodriguez made a Zombie flick, but did not focus on shock value or suspense, but instead went straight ahead for an action movie. And the movie is what you're expecting from a film like this: there is violence, there is sex and there is a silly plot. Also, while Tarantino's movie lost its rough and corny looking visual style after the first hour, this movie sticks to the intentionally poor quality until the end. There are missing reel jokes and emulsion scratches. The soundtrack, which was composed by Robert Rodriguez is great, reminding of the soundtrack used in older B-movies. There is a superb fake trailer for the then-fictional film "Machete" at the beginning, which gained so much popularity that it was turned into a real film.
"Planet Terror" will not be everyone's cup of tea, and there will be many people saying that this movie is not good because of its cheap look, but it is exactly what "Grindhouse" is: Exploitation fun at its best!
-------------------------------
(SPOILERS may follow:)
"Planet Terror" is a zombie movie. And you get what to expect from a zombie movie: bodies being torn apart or ripped open, there are some scenes featuring organs. Some of these scenes are more detailed, while other are done in rapid cuts. There are two scenes featuring exploding heads, one time a human is unexpectedly shot in the head and it explodes the other time the female protagonist shoots a Zombie's head into a pieces towards the end. A helicopter's propeller chops up several zombies. Several people are shot with much blood spurting from the wounds in an extreme amount. A man is castrated against his will, we don't see the impact, but we see one of his bloody, graphic testicles on the floor (rather disgusting than disturbing). A rapist is poked into the eye with a wooden stick, teh stick breaks up and is stuck in his eye. He then gets infected and his penis melts on-screen (it does not exactly look like a penis, but see a viscous substance where his penis is used to be), then a needle is shot into his eye, until he completely melts into a zombie, before he vomits out tentacles (this scene is rather disgusting than shocking, or very comical). The protagonist's leg is ripped off by the zombies (we see the afterwards). A dog is run over by a car, a boy accidentally shoots himself. It is hard to write down everything because there is so much violence.
The movie starts with a lapdance scene, but it is not too graphic, even though lasting for the entire opening credits. Later, there is a sex scene between the two protagonists. There is no pubic area or breasts, but thrusting and moaning (it can be compared to the sex scene in "The Terminator"). A man attempts to rape a woman, but gets killed in a very graphic way before anything happens (the penis melting scene mentioned above).
There are several uses of the f-word, as well as some milder profanity.
In the "Machete" trailer we see people getting shot with spurting blood, and two topless women.
Even though having many inappropriate scenes of violence, sex and language, it is so over-the-top that it is okay for mature teens.
Also, unliek many other zombie movies, "Planet Terror" is not meant to frighten or shock, but to entertain. It is very action-ish and rough, due to its high stylization, it is not too intense. It should be okay for audiences 16 and up, that understand its tongue-in-cheek character. But you should be expecting rather graphic violence.

Over the top violence and gore in explosive action filled "dish it all out" style flick.

I have not seen the the theatrical version as it was rated NC17 in the theatre but I have seen the unrated DVD version(bought the Grindhouse DVD pack on amazon) .This movie came with Death Proof in the Grindhouse 2 Movie Pack at a superb deal,but the movies inside weren't so superb.There is extreme amounts of gore in this and Death Proof although there is so much even weak hearted viewers will be able to tell this from realistic to campy.In the fake trailer "Machete" we see a bit of cleavage but it's from afar and very hard to catch,also a bit of blood and gore.Overall,Very mature explicit content not recommended for under 17s.Take this and Death Proof and you get one heck of an explosive.Tell me if you need more action.I'll certainly give you a medal.

Best for people 18 and older

This is a very stylized and fairly entertaining movie.It has really good action scenes and a real zing and wit to it.The film also features some good performances and touches of comedy here and there.Having said that this is an incredibly violent,gory and very nasty film.It is incredibly over the top and somwhat sickening so be aware of that before you watch it

I love robert Rodriquez same as Quentin Tarantino and i watched Death proof it was horrible.. but this was actually pretty good. A lot of bloody violence and massive swears. It is disgusting too. People get shot in the head or get eaten. Maybe people who are really mature that are age 15+ can watch

For adults

It's good for older audiences. Stop commenting saying it's not for kids. Of course it's not, it's a zombie movie.

Spectacular zombie flick is fine for teens

This movie is very very good, it has a good plot, awsome action, and an alstar cast, it has some issues though:
1. Lots of blood and guts, but it's sooooo fake that the only one who ould think it's real is an 8 year old, humans and zombies are shot, stabed, beheaded and more,
a boy shoots himself acidentily, peoples balls are cut off (off screen).
2. The opening credits are cherry doing a ver exotic and sugustive dance, brief nudity, a sex scene is inturuted by a missing reel.
3. F--k and S--t are utered as well as others, but not nearly as much as in "Death proof".
SO overall this is a fun action movie for teens.

Best movie in the World!!!!!!

Just because this movie is extremely graphic and gory is no reason not to see this movie. They drop the F-bomb a few too many times, but other than that the only thing to watch out for is violence. A Little nudity, but an absolutely spectacular movie. 14 + can watch it.

Planet Terror

Easily the funniest horror film ever made, Planet Terror is an absolutely crazy and entertaining ride. I totally disagree with CSM's review of this film...yes, there's a LOT of blood and gore to be found here, but it's all so incredibly over-the-top and silly that at a point it's not even gross anymore.
Undoubtedly not everyone will enjoy this zombie flick, but I loved it. I'd also highly recommend Death Proof, the other half of Grindhouse.
