The film Grindhouse gleefully resurrects the theatrical experience of watching back-to-back exploitation movies. Written and directed by two of the genre's most hard-core and best-known fans, the film consists of two short features -- one from Quentin Tarantino and the other by Robert Rodriguez -- as well as a series of lurid trailers for non-existent movies. In the book Grindhouse: The Sleaze-filled Saga of an Exploitation Double Feature, Tarantino and Rodriguez chronicle the film's production from page to screen and everything in between. Featured are Rodriguez's and Tarantino's original screenplays in their entirety, interviews with key cast and crew members, and over 300 photographs and illustrations, including never-before-seen artwork and concept designs. An exhaustive history of exploitation films, complete with full-color reproductions of classic one-sheets from the directors' private collections, enhances the reader's appreciation of this tasteless, yet highly entertaining and influential genre.
