"Two separate pairs of voluptuous women are stalked at different times by a scarred stuntman who uses his "death proof" cars to execute his murderous plans."

Here's the trailer:

Looks very good! There is a long car chase at the end of the movie involving a Chevy Nova, Dodge Charger and Challenger!

Stuntman Mike probably goes on top-three of all time Kurt Russel roles, among with Snake Plissken and R.J. MacReady (The Thing).

I have seen the chase, and I am tempted to rate it the best chase scene since Ronin :D

Here is a review of the chase scene I posted elsewhere:

The car chase presented is a very true homage to the 70s car chase scene, particularly within the cars themselves - a black Charger up against a white Challenger rather unshameably referencing to Bullitt and Vanishing Point, to the extent that the plot actually involves the Challenger representing the model used in Vanishing Point. It really does succeed well in giving the illusion that you are watching a 70s car chase, and on that front deserves high praise, as the sheer quality of the chase is sublime.

One scene that I particularly like is when the pursuing vehicles become engaged in a line of traffic, that comprises of entirely modern civilian vehicles. The contrast given off is simply marvelous, with the implication that the director is most likely trying to send a message, as the muscle cars become entangled within these modern day vehicles, and even end up spinning some of them out on course. It's certainly a satisfying image, as the director seemingly vents his rage and, as pointed out before, spits in the face of modern chase films.

As epic as the chase is, I however must criticise. The first half of the chase seemed to lack variety on first viewing as it merely involved both cars constantly ramming into each other on a mostly straight road, and in my mind seemed to be an extended take on the final few minutes of Bullitt, which prompted me to actually say out loud "was that it?". However, the second half picks up as a twist in pursuer roles ensues, which I don't recall seeing since Le Professionel. After viewing the whole chase, it then clicked that the 70s merit was well portrayed, and that the chase brought back what most modern chase films seem to overlook - a tense duel between two muscle cars with no complications. My only other criticism is that there is a slight lack of destruction on display as despite there being consistent rammings, there is only one main crash.

A contender for the top 3 chases of all time? I don't think so, but at the moment I am tempted to say that it is the best car chase since Ronin.

Just to make myself feel better, I'm going to assume that Quentin Tarantino, with the amount of money floating around and his interest in vintage American muscle, had the cars restored and not sent "to the crusher". Just because the body is ******, doesn't mean lots of money can't be put into new panels and lots of labour :D. Even if the frame rails themselves are a little 'off-center' now, they can be corrected (... and shot-peened :P). I wish I knew what happened to these cars now that the movie is finished, because I just can't see Tarantino allowing these cars to be butchered during filming but not restored afterwards.

Hello there!

Does anybody know something about that metal sculpture of the "smiling race duck" that is posed on the hood of Kurt Russels Nova? (see picture 3)
Was it made especially for the movie or is it known from somewhere else?
Is it available from somewhere?

Thanx folks!

The chrome rubber duck on Stuntman Mike's Chevy Nova & Dodge Charger is the same rubber duck on Rubber Duck's Mack truck from "Convoy".

Grindhouse was composed of two movies (listed separately on imcdb, though that we should still clean the Grindhouse page)

It was left at the Challenger owners house while they went on the 'test drive'.

Erm, and that Nova doesn't turn out so pretty after it crashes- head on, at a combined speed of a hundred-something miles an hour- into that Civic.

Don't be a fool incog, do you really think he gives a shit about classic cars. If anything he hates em, every movie he makes he destroys a classic car one way or another. I'd like to meet Quentin Tarantino just once so I can punch him in his face.

I like to think that they use nice restored cars for the close-ups and "before" shots, and resprayed rusty old shitters for the crash scenes. Probably.

"I like to think that they use nice restored cars for the close-ups and "before" shots, and resprayed rusty old shitters for the crash scenes." Any good film producer would improvise a rust bucket or mock replica if they were to wreck a good car. For some reason when I look at the scratches on the Challenger I can make out some scuffs and rust. It'd stink if a few good muscle cars were destroyed to make this cheap campy mediocre flic.

The final chase is one of the best ever but i wish that they used a Orange 1969 Pontiac GTO The Judge insted of a 1970 Vanishing Point Dodge Challenger no ofends the Challenger is a sweet ride but they had a chase between a Challenger and a Charger in the Vanishing Point remake from 1997 and i think that the 1969 Pontiac GTO The Judge deservs a good movie role not just movies like that big pice of shit The Last Ride that broke my heart i mean and iconic role like the Aston Martin DB5 from James Bond 007 Goldfinger from 1964 or the 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback from Bullitt

It's never explained what happens when they return the wrecked Challenger to the rapist truck driver from Kill Bill (Volume 1), especially after they left their porn star friend as collateral for a car they just destroyed.

I saw the charger heap on e-bay after they had finished the movie... They had several cars in different states of disrepair. supposedly the wreck that is laying there at the end was bought that way.
