Planet Terror is the first half of 2007's Grindhouse double bill which includes Death Proof. The horror film was directed by Robert Rodriguez, and follows a group of survivors that struggle to escape a town filled with inhabitants infected with a deadly virus. Planet Terror was released on DVD separately with additional scenes added and featured a mock trailer for a revenge film called Machete, which was subsequently expanded into a full theatrical film released in 2010.
The following weapons were used in the film Planet Terror:
Sheriff Hague (Michael Biehn) carries a Colt Python as sidearm throughout the film. Deputy Tolo (Tom Savini) uses a Colt Python outside the police station, but it switches to a Ruger Security Six at the hospital. Wray (Freddy Rodriguez) is given a Ruger Security Six by Sheriff Hague at The Bone Shack it then switches to a Colt Python and he uses it through the end of the film.
Colt Python - .357 Magnum

Sheriff Hague fires his Python at one of the zombies. Director Robert Rodriguez notes on the DVD commentary that Michael Biehn
asked him if there should be a shot of him reloading. Rodriguez said the audience would be wondering more about how Cherry fires her gun without pulling the trigger, than gun reloads.

Ruger Security Six

Wray fires the 1911A1 upside down at the soldier. His thumb would be hurting like hell from the slide recoiling back. Also the grip safety must be faulty in order fire.
I have seen me some crazy ass shit in my day...but I ain't never seen me a one-legged stripper. I have seen me a stripper with one breast, and I've seen me a stripper with 12 toes, and I've seen me a stripper with no brains at all, but I ain't never seen me a one-legged stripper. And I've been to Morocco.

From left the right. A Mossberg 500, Winchester 1894, two Mossberg 500's. The last firearm in the rack is a shotgun and it appears to me to be a Winchester Model 12 from the barrel, magazine tube, and how they are attached to one another. The first to last is a rifle of some sort. It almost appears to be a M1 carbine derivative.
