* ActingForTwo: Michael Biehn plays Sheriff Hague in ''Film/PlanetTerror'' and appears again in the fake trailer for ''Thanksgiving''.
* CreatorBacklash: Creator/QuentinTarantino has stated that ''Death Proof'' is the worst film he's made. On its own he considers it to be not ''too'' bad, but not as good as the rest of his work and says he'll retire before making something as terrible again.
* {{Defictionalization}}: Rodriguez's ''Film/{{Machete}}'' was released in late 2010, and ''Film/HoboWithAShotgun'' was released in 2011. Rob Zombie is also giving strong consideration to do a full length version of ''Werewolf Women of the SS''. The hypothetical ''Grindhouse 2'' would supposedly be ''Don't'' and ''Thanksgiving'', with new fake trailers as well.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Not only was the film a financial failure, but the two films were released separately on DVD instead of in one long package, defeating the purpose of recreating a grindhouse experience. Only in 2010 was the complete package made available... on Blu-ray.
** After Harvey Weinstein was fired from his own company for numerous sexual harassment accusations and settlements, Robert Rodriguez revealed in an open letter he cast Rose Mc Gowan as the lead in retaliation for Harvey blacklisting her after one such case (she signed a NDA and couldn't discuss it publicly). He suspected Weinstein screwed over the release of the film for this exact reason.
* LoopholeAbuse: Robert Rodriguez wanted to cast Rose Mc Gowan as the lead in "Planet Terror", but she had been blacklisted from auditioning for Weinstein Company films due to an NDA from a sexual harassment suit against Harvey Weinstein. Robert pointed out he reported to Dimension Films and worked with Harvey's brother Bob, so Robert could put her in his film if he wanted and Harvey couldn't do anything about it.
* NoExportForYou: The theatrical cut of ''Grindhouse'' wasn't released on home video in the US and Canada until more than 3 years later, and it was barely released overseas ''as'' ''Grindhouse'' at all - both movies were released individually, beyond a very limited release in its original form in Australia.
