Nitehawk becomes a grind house for the nite as it launches THE WORKS – KURT RUSSELL with a special one-night screening of the double-feature GRINDHOUSE (PLANET TERROR and DEATH PROOF) with a presentation of “Wild Eye Releasing’s 35mm Grind House Trailer Show” before the films!
Uncensored sexuality and hardcore thrills! Kurt Russell stars as the murderous car driver in Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse contribution, Death Proof. Preying on innocent women and then brutally ending their lives in violent car crashes, this sexy serial killer meets his match when he takes on a gang of stunt women. Brilliant. But before we get to Russell, there’s Robert Rodriguez’s all-star cult film take on the zombie film, Planet Terror. Oozing brains and Rose McGowan with a machine gun leg? Sign us up! Grindhouse is well known for its fictional trailer intermission by the like of Eli Roth, Edgar Wight, and Rob Zombie but we’re taking it up a notch by screening real 35mm trailers from the golden era itself.
Part of THE WORKS – KURT RUSSELL.
