- Creator Backlash: Quentin Tarantino 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 Machete was released in late 2010, and Hobo with a Shotgun 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.
- No Export for You: 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.
