Grindhouse Double Shock Show: (The Demon / Monster Of Blood):at our store, we stock over 2000 models, so if you see the manufacturer, but not the model, don't be shy - give us a call and we will be happy to check! I was one of the folks lucky enough to catch "Grindhouse" in the theaters back in 2007, and never really wanted to re-visit the individual films separately, so I'm glad they finally released the original "Grindhouse" double feature as seen on the big screen. I see other reviews stating that this disc is missing parts of each film, and I can only guess that those reviews have only seen the fleshed out, individual films. This Blu-Ray is exactly what I saw in theater, it's not "missing" anything (except where intentional).I loved the experience of see this film, it's a wonderful package of coming attractions, restaurant ads, and ratings info, the presentation transports me right back to the glorious days of my local drive-in double features. The idea, and the packaging of these films is greater than either of the films in the double feature.With that said I thoroughly enjoyed "Planet Terror". It's loud, gory, sexy, funny and truly a great homage to those bloody splatterfest films of the 1970's and 1980's. After chemical leak near an old army base, a small town is Texas is overrun by flesh eating mutants. A small band of survivors use any and all weapons at hand to survive. Great cast, lots of fun, and plenty of fantastic visuals that create on hell of a ride.Next up we get a few phony coming attractions, and each is so over-the-top and fun, you can't help but enjoy this 10-15 minute segment."Death Proof" is I guess the main attraction, with Kurt Russell playing Stuntman Mike. A serial killer that enjoys using his fortified muscle car as his weapon of choice. This is where "Grindhouse" kind of comes off the rails, because after the non-stop thrills of the first 90 minutes, we are thrown into a talky, slow paced film, that seems designed more to showcase Tarantino's foot fetish more than any thrills or chills. We get 40 minutes of babbling, followed by 5 minutes of excitement, followed by another 40 minutes of babbling, all leading to a tepid climax.I often wonder if the lackluster performance of this film is due to the fact that "Death Proof" is so damn boring? I almost think it would make a better viewing experience to watch Tarantino's film first, followed by the non-stop "Planet Terror". I still think this film as a whole is greater than it's parts, and it's one I'll re-visit down the road, but really wish "Death Proof" were a better movie.ranking top16,elegant,cheap super special priceGrindhouse Double Shock Show: (The Demon / Monster Of Blood)

All Abuzz About Bugs!

We are an online community of naturalists who enjoy learning about and sharing our observations of insects, spiders, and other related creatures.

We enjoy the opportunity to instill in others the fascination and appreciation that we share for the intricate lives of these oft-maligned creatures.

Our Mission

Using the best resources we have access to, we are creating a knowledgebase to help each other and the online community.

Our Method

We collect photographs of bugs from the United States and Canada for identification and research.

We summarize our findings in guide pages for each order, family, genus, and species.

Making New Discoveries

More than just a clearinghouse for information, this site helps expand on the natural histories of our subjects. By capturing the place and time that submitted images were taken, we are creating a virtual collection that helps define where and when things might be found.

We capture never-before-seen behaviors and we have photos of species that you won't find anywhere else on the web.
