In wich way? Haven’t heard it until now.


#6

Frayed: The script’s storyline is influenced by the Psycho storyline. It was pointed out in early script reviews. .


#7

Stir Crazy was also a huge influence on both films. Without Stir Crazy there would be no GrindHouse, Pulp Fiction or even Spy Kids 3D.


#8

Crash, how?

I’ve seen all of them except Gone In 60 Seconds :slight_smile:



I think “My Bloody Valetine” might have inspired “Grind House” in some way,I read that it is Quentin Tarantino’s favorite 80s horror movie.


#15

Yes I read that too it’s his favorite exploitation slasher.

It probably will. I actually have never seen that one. All I know is that its a Canadian slasher film about a killer dressed as a coal miner. Gotta check it out sometime. <


#18

I’ve heard that “Terms of Endearment” was a major influence for both directors. As well as “On Golden Pond”.

LOL! ;D
