‘Birds of Prey’ Falls in Love With a Female Anti-Hero [The Lady Killers Podcast]


Oh, balls.

After concluding June with discussions of the wacky space antics (and commando drag queens) of Leprechaun 4: In Space (listen) and the underseen-but-very-good trans vampire film Bit (listen), we’re heading into grindhouse cinema with Robert Rodriguez‘s first half of the Grindhouse double-bill: Planet Terror (2007)!

In the film, an experimental bio-weapon is released that turns the residents of a small town into zombie-like creatures. A rag-tag group of survivors, including go-go dancer Cherry Darling (Rose McGowan), anesthesiologist Dakota Block (Marley Shelton) and bad boy El Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), team up to stop the infected and those behind its release. Little do they know that the army, led by the sinister Lieutenant Muldoon (Bruce Willis), is hiding a deep, dark secret that none of them could have ever anticipated.

Episode 288: Planet Terror (2007)

Break out your good spring water and raise those limp wrists because we’re talking the first half of Grindhouse in Robert Rodriguez‘s endlessly entertaining Planet Terror (2007). Bazooka-jumping into the conversation are Jamie and Bhavna of the Bloody Broads Podcast!

Join us as we do a deep dive into the legacy of this film, including its notorious box office flop status, before heaping all the praise on its badass female characters (Rose McGowan and Marley Shelton). From changing history with Osama bin Laden to pushing all the limits of good taste, we’ve never seen anything like this film before….and we’ve been to Morocco!

Plus: that iconic machine gun leg, debating “bro films,” plenty of pus (and pustules) and one hilarious child death.

Cross out Planet Terror!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re heading into the world of Japanese experimental cinema with a look at Shinya Tsukamoto’s classic Tetsuo: The Iron Man!
