REASONS WHY 2010 COULD BE PRETTY BITCHIN' #2: FROM FAKE TRAILER TO FULL-FLEDGED FEATURE

One of the many joys of GRINDHOUSE was its fake trailers, each a fun and evocative short that perfectly captured the feel of the genres they were straight-facedly lampooning, and perhaps the best-realized of the lot was Robert Rodriguez's MACHETE. Sitting through that coming attraction for a movie that would presumably never come made me wish that it was real, and now my prayers have been answered.

Yes, this is the actual teaser poster for the upcoming full-length MACHETE, and I'll be there on opening night (a date that has yet to be announced). Hopefully it will be ultra-violent and entertaining as hell, thereby scoring a huge hit at the box office and possibly opening the floodgates for a new wave of bigscreen exploitation flicks. Oh, please let it happen...
