Grind House -- noun -- A downtown movie theater -- in disrepair since its glory days as a movie palace of the '30s and '40s -- known for "grinding out" non-stop double-bill programs of B-movies.

From groundbreaking directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez comes the ultimate film experience: a double-bill of thrillers that will recall both filmmakers' favorite exploitation films. GRINDHOUSE will be presented as one full-length feature comprised of two individual films helmed separately by each director. Tarantino's film, "DEATH PROOF," is a rip-roaring slasher flick where the killer pursues his victims with a car rather than a knife, while Rodriguez's film explores an alien world eerily familiar to ours in PLANET TERROR. Welcome to the Grindhouse -- it'll tear you in two.

Starring Rose McGowan, Marley Shelton, Freddy Rodriguez, Josh Brolin, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Naveen Andrews, Stacy Ferguson, Elise and Electra Avellan, Kurt Russell, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Vanessa Ferlito, Jordan Ladd, Tracie Thoms, Rosario Dawson, Zoe Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Eli Roth and Omar Doom, GRINDHOUSE also showcases faux trailers from Eli Roth (CABIN FEVER, HOSTEL and the upcoming HOSTEL PART II), Edgar Wright (SHAUN OF THE DEAD and the upcoming HOT FUZZ) and Rob Zombie (HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES AND THE DEVIL'S REJECTS).
