Blood, Violence and Babes

A B-Movie Holy Grail by John Allman

If youíve surfed the DVR pay-per-view options and seen a bunch of movies that youíve never heard of, chances are John has watched them. Why? He loves movies. All kinds of movies. Good, bad, so-bad-theyíre good, even the truly unwatchable ones. He mostly loves horror and science-fiction and drive-in exploitation movies that most upstanding model citizens wouldnít dare watch. Then he writes up his thoughts so you can decide - watch, donít watch or avoid at all costs. Sometimes he even gets to talk to the cool folks who make some of your favorite films.

A Conversation With: ZoŽ Bell

ZoŽ Bell spent years in front of the camera in Hollywood without anyone knowing her name.

She performed stunts for Lucy Lawless as her body double on “Xena: Warrior Princess,” and then, years later, as Uma Thurman's stunt double on “Kill Bill: Volume I and II.”

Kudos to Quentin Tarrantino for seeing something more in Bell, and for putting her front and center finally in “Death Proof,” his homage to drive-in movies for his half of “Grindhouse,” which he directed with Robert Rodriguez.
