Lt. Muldoon:
You want the story? I’ll spin it for you quick. A termite’s nest in a cave on the Afghan border; me and my men walking around with our dicks in our hands and our balls in our throats, lookin’ for America’s most wanted.
Scene 21 Honorable Discharge by Planet Terror (Ft. Bruce Willis, Freddy Rodriguez & Naveen Andrews)

Now we’re given Lt. Muldoon’s backstory. And how the bad guy isn’t actually all that bad. In fact, we owe him a great deal of gratitude. But because of his lack of accreditation, he’s become sinister, and an antagonist.

Funny story:
Rodriguez had cast Brice Willis in his previous film, Sin City. Bruce absolutely loved it and told Rodriguez that he’d do any part in any movie, even if its a dog. When Rodriguez was thinking of who he could get for this minor roll, he thought “Maybe I should think bigger” and reached out to Bruce. His pitch was “you’re a bad guy, it’s a small part, but you get to kill bin Laden”, Willis responded “Who better?”

She doesn’t respond, which frustrates the soldier, he slams his fist into the emergency stop button and the elevator comes to a hault. He turns back around to face the girls. Scene 20 Project Terror by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Naveen Andrews, Quentin Tarantino & Rose McGowan)

At this point, the soldier’s true colors come out. He was “playing” nice but quickly turned. As he gets creepier and scarier, a red wash is edited over the film to give the effect that he’s a darker character.

Robert Rodriguez says that Quentin owns actual film prints where they’re worn out so much that they have this magenta hue to them, and he figured what better way to use that than to shoot that effect over Quentin himself.

Wray sees more coming in the distance and yells at everyone to “get back inside.” Scene 18 Bone Shack Attack by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rose McGowan, Skip Reissig & Tom Savini)

At this point, the crew, lead by Wray, steps outside to escape the burning restaurant, but there are so many zombies approaching that they have to potentially sacrifice the situation. Wray instructs everyone to get back inside, knowing that the smoke from inside the restaurant could likely kill them, just not as quickly as the zombies could.

I figured one of them new deputies might end up shootin’ me, but not you Tolo! Scene 18 Bone Shack Attack by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rose McGowan, Skip Reissig & Tom Savini)

Once Sheriff Hague and company arrived at JT’s, he and Tolo unveiled the “All or Nothing Box” to everyone, which included deputy badges. Hague made everyone (sans Wray) a deputy. Before storming JT’s restaurant, the Sheriff told everyone to be care, and most importantly, don’t shoot him.

So when Hague is saying “I figured one of the new deputies might end up shootin' me, not you Tolo” it just plays on the foreshadowing that was given to us earlier. It also further drives home Tolo’s ignorance, although he means well.

Hague opens fire, connecting with all three zombies. Scene 12 Police Station Assault by Planet Terror (Ft. Carlos Gallardo, Freddy Rodriguez, Michael Biehn & Tom Savini)

Before we’re allowed to see Wray with a firearm, the only person “in charge” is Sheriff Hague. At this point in the story, his presence still dominates Wray’s.

And he’s not a bad shot either.

Cherry spins around, round house kicking him with her wooden leg. It breaks off across his face and knocks him to the ground. Scene 22 Melting Member by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Gregory Kelly, Marley Shelton, Naveen Andrews, Quentin Tarantino & Rose McGowan)

He puts his gun to Cherry’s head.

Soldier 1:
Wail, baby, now!

Cherry begins to “dance.”
Scene 22 Melting Member by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Gregory Kelly, Marley Shelton, Naveen Andrews, Quentin Tarantino & Rose McGowan)

This “soldier” really gets the best of Cherry for the time being. She’ll be getting her revenge mere moments later.


Her personal self-worth and esteem have flourished over the course of the film. Meanwhile, her dancing has regressed.

Cherry stands up with her new leg; Scene 23 Killer Legs by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Naveen Andrews, Rose McGowan & Skip Reissig)

Earlier in the film Wray was either dragging Cherry or assuming she’d be fending for herself.

Now that the two have consummated their engagement, he’s seen helping her stand up. Very few times we see development in Wray’s character.

He shoves it onto her torso, so now she has a leg gun. Scene 23 Killer Legs by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Naveen Andrews, Rose McGowan & Skip Reissig)

Wray:
Good. Anyone else have a car?

Camera cuts to a shot of everyone in the garage, Dakota raises her limp hand.
Scene 19 Zero to Fifty in Four by Planet Terror (Ft. Bruce Willis, Freddy Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn & Rose McGowan)

Despite her wildly disheartening night, Dakota is still there and still willingly helpful.

Even after hours from the attack from her husband, she is still feeling the effects from the medicine.
