Hague accidentally runs it over, the dog’s blood spraying all over the Twins. Scene 19 Zero to Fifty in Four by Planet Terror (Ft. Bruce Willis, Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn & Rose McGowan)

The intention here was to really drive home the fact that this was a throwback “grind house” movie, where they have no sense of right and wrong.

They would do anything they could to get a reaction from the crowd. There’s one other segment in the movie that uses this same mentality, and they’re both used to upset the audience.

Come on Skip, it’s go-go… Not cry-cry. Scene 18 Bone Shack Attack by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rose McGowan, Skip Reissig & Tom Savini)

Skip’s famous words to Cherry end up biting him in the ass, as he’s proved to be a bit of a wuss when it comes to taking charge in a dangerous situation. Cherry outshines Skip here, lowering his worth to the group, although he’s drastically needed later on.

They pop the trunk as Wray looks down, Dakota behind him. Scene 19 Zero to Fifty in Four by Planet Terror (Ft. Bruce Willis, Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn & Rose McGowan)

A direct homage to co-collaborator on Grindhouse, Quentin Tarantino. The “from the trunk” shot is one of Tarantino’s trademarks in his films.

The garage doors open after JT shoves them to the side. Scene 19 Zero to Fifty in Four by Planet Terror (Ft. Bruce Willis, Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn & Rose McGowan)

At this point the music speeds up and provides the perfect pulse effect, making the scene tense up and move forward speedily. Robert Rodriguez says that this could be his favorite piece of music in the film, and that it was very John Carpenter like, continuing to pay homage to his idol.

You, Skip, front and center. (Skip steps forward) You go out front, start up the Kill Dozer. (Hands Skip the keys) We’ll need it to transport the other survivors. Scene 18 Bone Shack Attack by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rose McGowan, Skip Reissig & Tom Savini)

Wray is now officially the leader. Hague has given the reigns over and from this point on, Wray is no longer shot on camera small, instead he’s shot very large with him in front of everyone, more aggressive and authoritative.

No, you’re not! Don’t give him the gun. Not-- Scene 18 Bone Shack Attack by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rose McGowan, Skip Reissig & Tom Savini)

Poor Tolo. He’s already lost his ring finger and his partner Carlos. The humor behind this bit is that Tolo is concerned about Wray possessing a weapon, meanwhile he’s the one that’s shot an innocent patient, back at the hospital and more importantly, Sheriff Hague on accident.

If I had known that you were… El Wray, I wouldn’t have given you such a hard time. Scene 18 Bone Shack Attack by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rose McGowan, Skip Reissig & Tom Savini)

Because of the missing reel, we completely miss out on the sequence that lead to Tolo shooting Hague accidentally, as well as the most important piece of information, who the hell Wray is.

The emphasis on “El” is intentionally funny, because it still gives the audience zero clues.

From the “missing reel” screen we cut instantly to the outside of JT’s Bone Shack. It is completely on fire. Scene 18 Bone Shack Attack by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rose McGowan, Skip Reissig & Tom Savini)

Because of the missing reel, we miss out on the closing portion of the second act, and instead are slammed into the beginning of the third and final act.

The tail end of the second act is typically slow, but it wraps up character development and ties story arcs together. We have completely lost all of that due to the “missing reel.” So we never really find out who Wray is — which is arguably the biggest question thus far in the movie.

Robert Rodriguez used this method to stay true to the old grind house pictures that traveled around the country and would often times have beat up, or burnt or in this case, completely missing reels.

It’s opened and revealed to be a ring. Scene 17 Ring in the Jacket by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn & Rose McGowan)

This is essentially the only real character development we get out of Wray. We find out that the couple’s history was a bit more serious than lead to believe. And that Wray indeed was emotionally effected by her walking out on him.

Before we know it, he’s being ripped apart by several zombies. Wray turns and quickly fires, hitting all four zombies in the head. Scene 18 Bone Shack Attack by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rose McGowan, Skip Reissig & Tom Savini)

Wray’s first kills with guns in the film. Notice that they’re all headshots, driving home is signature “I never miss.”
