Grindhouse is a Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino double feature released in 2007 consisting of the feature films Death Proof and Planet Terror that were interspersed with mock trailers for fictional Grindhouse films. These trailers were helmed by several well-known horror directors such as Rob Zombie, Eli Roth, Edgar Wright, as well as one by Robert Rodriguez. In keeping with the "grindhouse" feel, the main films and fake trailers were presented digitally scratched and blurred to resemble well worn films of the era. The two feature films were eventually released in their full length form on DVD in 2007 and then the entire "Grindhouse" experience in 2010. The mock trailers Machete and Hobo with a Shotgun would also be expanded into full length features.

Feature film segments

Planet Terror

For the weapons featured in Planet Terror, the zombie horror film directed by Robert Rodriguez, please visit the Planet Terror film page.

Death Proof

For the weapons featured in Death Proof, the killer car thriller film directed by Quentin Tarantino, please visit the Death Proof page.

Machete

Machete is the first trailer seen in Grindhouse. Directed by Robert Rodriguez, the trailer is for a fake "Mexploitation" revenge film starring Danny Trejo as the title character, a Mexican assassin who seeks retribution on the ones who double-crossed him and left him for head. The trailer also featured Jeff Fahey and Cheech Marin and was included in the Planet Terror video release. Rodriguez would expand the trailer into a full length feature film released in 2010 and a sequel Machete Kills was released in 2013.

The following weapons were used in the trailer for Machete:

Interdynamic KG-9 / Intratec TEC-9

After the senator hires Machete, the camera pans on several guns. This scene is similar to Escape from New York, which John Carpenter directed. Robert Rodriguez also uses music scores similar to John Carpenter themes during the film (and even one theme from Escape from New York). An Interdynamic KG-9 / Intratec TEC-9 (which was used in another Carpenter film - Big Trouble in Little China) is clearly visible.

Walther CP99 Nighthawk

What appears to be a heavily customized Walther P99 can be seen on a table of guns set out for Machete. This pistol is in fact a Walther CP99 Nighthawk, a CO2 powered airgun replica of the P99 manufactured by Umarex.

The pistol on the left with the scope and rail is a "P99" or Walther Nighthawk.

Walther P22

A customized stainless Walther P22 is also among the weapons set out for Machete.

What appears to be a Ruger Mini-14 is used by a henchman to shoot Machete in the shoulder. In the actual film, a different actor and different weapon is seen.

Don't

Don't is a trailer for a fake British horror film directed by Edgar Wright similar in tone to the Hammer films. The trailer's cast includes Jason Isaacs as well as Wright's favorites Nick Frost as "The Baby-Eater" and Simon Pegg as the "Bearded Cannibal in Glasses". There are no firearms in the trailer.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a trailer for a fake slasher film parodying such holiday-themed horror films such as Halloween. The trailer, which was directed by Eli Roth, features Michael Biehn, Jay Hernandez, Eli Roth himself and his childhood friend Jeff Rendell as the serial killer known as the Pilgrim. There are no firearms seen in the trailer.

Werewolf Women of the SS

Werewolf Women of the SS is a trailer for a fake "Nazisploitation" film. The trailer, which was directed by Rob Zombie, features not only the B-Movie cult stars such as Udo Kier, Tom Towles, Sybil Danning, Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon Zombie but also Nicolas Cage in a surprise cameo as Fu Manchu.

The following weapons were used in the trailer for Werewolf Women of the SS:

Mauser Karabiner 98k

Karabiner 98k rifles are seen in the hands of the German soldiers guarding Death Camp 13 and also in the archive footage which shown with the text in the beginning.

MG42

An MG42 GPMG is seen in the hands of the German officer who transforms into werewolf. The same shot of him firing the gun is seen three times in the "trailer". The Werewolf officer is played by Michael Deak, the special makeup effects artist who collaborated with Rob Zombie on several of his films.

Luger P08

Hobo with a Shotgun

Hobo with a Shotgun is a fake action film trailer directed by Canadian filmmaker Jason Eisener and featuring David Brunt in the title role of the hobo turned vigilante. This trailer won the "South by Southwest" contest put on by Robert Rodriguez and was featured in some select screenings of Grindhouse in the United States and Canada, as well as a DVD release of the movie. This trailer was later turned into a full length feature film released on Video on Demand and Blu-ray in 2011 with Rutger Hauer as the title character and Brunt in cameo as the cop.

The following weapons were used in the trailer for Hobo with a Shotgun:

Ithaca Model 37 shotgun

Hobo (David Brunt) used an Ithaca 37 shotgun, bought in the shop, to kill various criminals, including corrupt cops, shop robbers and a pedophile in Santa Claus suit.

Unbelievable price.
Hobo aims his shotgun on a pedophile in Santa Claus suit...
...and then shoots out his brains. The trailer was made very cheap and fast, so muzzle flashes mostly CGI.

Hobo reloads his gun using the same impressive one-handed method that was used by Padre in another fake trailer - "Machete". His strange look is a result of being tortured.

M16A1 Rifle

The prostitute/assassin (Cadence Macmichael) is seen firing a M16A1 Rifle.

MAC-10

A strange machine pistol, most likely a MAC-10 without magazine (so that it looks a little like Micro Uzi) is seen twice in the movie, used by mugger in the shop and the same female assassin that used the M16A1 Rifle.

The robber on the right is holding a MAC-10, the one on the left is holding an unidentified pistol and the one in the center (Glen Matthews) holds a hostage (Loretta Yu) with a machete. It's strange, how many coincidences with "Machete" this trailer was made separately, without knowledge of Rodriguez's trailer.
The girl is shot by Hobo with MAC-10 in her hand.

Beretta 92FS

One of the muggers uses a Beretta 92FS, that can barely be identified because of the quality and specially made scratches/blurring of the trailer.

The mugger threatens the store clerk (Zoe Dunsworth) with his pistol (the clearest image of that gun in the entire trailer).
The mugger becomes the Hobo's first victim, being shot while holding his gun on the store clerk.

M1911

The Pimp (Mike Jackson) is seen with an original M1911, while screaming to a hitman that he wants the Hobo dead.
