    Three's a charm, so here's the last of the Grindhouse questionnaires. Everyone was talking about the trailers in the other threads (and with good reason), so pick your favorite here. Werewolves, turkeys, hobos, machetes or good old fashioned contractions...you decide. If you plan on discussing the feature films...DON'T. You can do that here:

    Thanksgiving for me. However, Machete was badass and I hope it does turn into a film.

    I chose Thanksgiving. I didn't have the Hobo trailer at my theatre, though I've seen it online.

    could you provide a link for the Hobo trailer. My theater didn't show it either.

    Even though I'd already seen it, Machete was still my favorite. Don't was a close second. I need to see it again to really appreciate it (I'm going for a repeat viewing Tuesday night).

    Rob Zombie proved he can even screw up a 90 second trailer as well as he can screw up a 90 minute movie. Easily the worst of the bunch.

    Thanksgiving was a bit 80ish, but I still really liked it.

    Loved all but it was a toss between "Thanksgiving" and "Don't". Voted for the underdog "Don't" :)

    Although my favorite moment was in Werewolf Women of the S.S., the best trailer to me was Machete by far. After all, he gets the ladies...

    I loved them all though and thought their differences represented the Grindhouse genre pretty well.

    Loved Werewolf Women, but Don't cracked me up all the way through. Especially the voice at the end:

    Don't

    Very hard to pick....I think I liked MACHETE best overall, and THANKSGIVING the best of the intermission trailers, but it's almost tied with DON'T.

    WEREWOLF WOMEN was fun, but Zombie's wife screwed it up.

    I enjoyed all except Zombie's (and that one had a great concept, I just thought the execution was lacking). And Thanksgiving was really great, which shocked me since I despise most of Roth's work.

    But my vote is Machete all the way. "They just fu__ed with the wrong Mexican!" In a just world Danny Trejo would be a star and Freddie Prinze Junior would work at McDonald's.

    Machete! :fire: Everything I could possibly want in a trailer and more! Danny Trejo rules all and Cheech Marin deserves the best supporting actor nod in the world of Trailer Oscars.

    I expected more from Werewolf Women. Had no idea the trailer would be so fleeting. Was this heavily cut?

    Had so much fun watching the trailers. :D :glasses:

    I loved all of them to be honest, but voted for Thanksgiving. I felt like I was in the theater back in the early 80's watching a preview for a new slasher film. Felt great.

    I can't believe I forgot about that line! That one had everyone cracking up in the theater where I saw the movie. :lol:

    Loved them all, but I voted Don't, Thanksgiving was a close 2nd. If you think your going to leave the theater alone, DON'T.

    Machete for me...if they make a sequel, they HAVE to make this into a full-length.
