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".

Edgar Wright's preview "Don't" is based on the Jerry Gross organization's preview for Sergio Martino's The Corpses Bore Traces Of Carnal Violence, retitled Torso (1973). The original trailer chanted the word "torso" faster and faster over every shortening clips of the film, as did Wright's trailer with the word "Don't."

In the final scene of "Death Proof," when the Dodge Challenger forces the Charger to spin out and crash, the Charger's rear wheels are still on the car. As the girls approach the car in the next scene, one rear wheel (driver's side) is no longer in the car.

A Note Regarding Spoilers
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Will there be a "Director's Cut" of each film on DVD?
Since the theatrical version of the film is what they strived for to presented to the public, it would be considered their "director's cut" The DVDs will have two versions of each film: the theatrical version and a "restored and remastered" version of the film which is basically the films before undergoing the "aging" process. Also, take into account there are versions of both films pushing 2 hours, due to the fact they are being split up in other countries. So, the DVD may incoporate these versions as well, making a 250 minute version. Only 18 seconds is supposedly deleted from the original cut from an interview on G4TV.
