Posted on I managed to catch Grindhouse in its nturaal habitat double-headline at an outdoor theatre, complete with faux-trailers in between and had a blast.

Viewing them separately diminishes them perhaps Grindhouse is better than the sum of its parts?Anyway stoked to see Machete taking shape, looks set to maintain the Grindhouse aesthetic and ideal.
