Planet Terror trivia
- Robert Rodriguez found the scene where Dr. Dakota Block leaves son Tony in the car with gun to be so chilling to film he didn't want to use anyone else's children to play Tony so he used his own son, Rebel Rodriguez, so he wouldn't feel as bad "killing a child".
- Partly to avoid traumatizing Rebel Rodriguez with knowledge of his disturbing death scene, Robert Rodriguez shot several scenes with Tony surviving all the way to the end of the movie. Some of this is seen on the DVD, but apparently the only complete edit with this footage is a private copy of the Rodriguez family's.
