If you think things shooting from boobs and women getting punched in the vagina is totally irreverent and edgy, and having Charlie Sheen actually say the words "Machete Kills" is some sort of knowing genius, then you're probably a better audience for this movie than we are.

Machete Kills

If you think things shooting from boobs and women getting punched in the vagina is totally irreverent and edgy, and having Charlie Sheen actually say the words "Machete Kills" is some sort of knowing genius, then you're probably a better audience for this movie than we are.

Once again dipping his toes in the waters of the exploitation genre, Robert Rodriguez is dishing out his latest serving of Danny Trejo in "Machete Kills." And while everyone involved is self-aware that they are making an intentionally bad movie, does that by default make it good? Even at the end of this red band trailer, we were kinda tired of the one note gags, and we can't imagine this having the energy to sustain a full ninety minutes. But apparently enough people sat through the last one that it's the reason this one even exists. But how many different ways can repackage a gun and make bodies explode before you run out of ideas? Also: Mel Gibson is really showing his age....seems like he can barely move....

"Machete Kills" arrives on October 11th. Check out the trailer below along with a new clip.
