Planet Terror

Wednesday, November 23 - Friday, November 25, 2011

“A hyper-referential, super-visceral, tongue-in-cheek exercise in splatter aimed squarely at exploitation devotees. A Texas hospital is the epicentre of an outbreak of face-melting cannibalism unleashed by a mishap at the military base down the highway; our heroes are the requisite rag-tag band of survivors headed by Freddie Rodriguez and Rose McGowan, whose machine-gun prosthetic leg is the movie’s undeniable coup… aficionados will appreciate the po-faced wordplay and self-consciously gnarled-up aesthetic (missing reels, bad syncing, etc) as much as the fleshy centrepieces and gross-out grace notes.” – Time Out (London)
