New trailer and character posters for MACHETE
On September 3, '70s exploitation fans are going to get another homage to that era with a film called MACHETE (which could just as easily be called GRINDHOUSE 2). Honestly, I'm growing tired of films like HELL RIDE, TICKED OFF TRANNIES WITH KNIVES (Tribeca Review HERE), and others that have enjoyed success after the not-so-successful Rodriguez/Tarantino collaboration, GRINDHOUSE, ushered in a new era of tongue-in-cheek exploitation flicks.
I can just go rent THEY CALL HER ONE EYE. I don't have to watch Michelle Rodriguez wearing an eye patch and kicking ass. However, Robert Rodriguez delivers these types of films on an epic scale; the sheer amount of crowd-pleasing moments that will surely be on display when Danny Trejo (as the wronged title character) goes up against the likes of Robert De Niro and Steven Seagal are bound to deliver. And I have faith that Rodriguez has packed enough wallop to make MACHETE one helluva fun ride. What really sold me on this trailer was the appearance of FX legend and PLANET TERROR star Tom Savini, who unfortunately will be reprising his role as Deputy Tolo from PLANET TERROR, instead of the cocksure character Sex Machine that he played in FROM DUSK 'TIL DAWN. The new trailer, a gun-wielding Robert De Niro, and other MACHETE characters are out to get revenge after the break!
