Grindhouse 2wo poster (and sad/funny stuff on Eldorado Facebook page)

Richard Driscoll continues to spin fantasies about Eldorado being delayed because he's fighting the BBFC for an 18 certificate even though at least one online retailer is already listing it as a 15. It's certainly very believable that, even though you can now buy a completely uncut version of Zombie Flesh Eaters, this half-arsed little comedy-musical is too extreme to be released. Utter nonsense. Have a read of the Eldorado Twitter feed if you fancy a laugh, or check out the comments on the Facebook page where the cast and crew are starting to realise that not all is as it seems...

In the meantime, here's the poster for Grindhouse 2wo, which is pencilled in for a late February release. Steve Munroe previously starred in The Comic, while 'Lorna Bliss, Britain's newest scream queen' is the Britney Spears impersonator who got understandably pissed off when Driscoll advertised that she would be performing at an event she hadn't agreed to.

Judging by the photos, the Danny Lopez, Brigitte Nielsen, Patrick Bergin and Michael Madsen footage in this is out-takes from Eldorado while the Linnea Quigley footage is out-takes from Kannibal! I don't recognise the Robin Askwith photo so possibly that's from the still unreleased Back2Hell. Continuing the great tradition of people's names being spelled wrong, production designer 'Lee Wilkenson' is actually Lee Fenton-Wilkinson. The out-takes have been sellotaped together, with some new footage shot last month, by editor Richie Mulryne who is drummer with Cornish indie band 3 Daft Monkeys.

I would say Grindhouse 2wo is more likely to be released than Eldorado because the out-takes it's built from might not be covered by the same rights problems (which are most likely what is holding up the Eldorado disc - it's certainly not the BBFC). But I'm not holding my breath for either of them, and neither should you.

Curse this fixed-width blog thing!

  1. 'Must See!' - !!!!!!!! Mike, you just know that I cannot wait for this!! Any idea what the 'history of grindhouse' featurette on the dvd extras is all about? Let's hope the Inspector from Kannibal is on hand to introduce it all...
