I'm gonna eat your brains and gain your knowledge... This book would have gotten a solid 5 stars (because, clearly, it is awesome) except for the fact that I hate reading screenplays, and there is more than one in here. But even if you ignore that part, which I did, this book is still aces. Planet Terror has become my favorite zombie movie, and while I like Death Proof considerably less, it's still fascinating to find out how they did it. Prepare to marvel at how Tarantino pulled off that face-tearing car crash! Good stuff.

This is a really fascinating book for any one interested in Rober Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's new film. Rodriguez and Tarantino also give a fascinating history of the Grindhouse genre.
