"Looked dead, didn't I? Well I wasn't, but it wasn't for lack of trying, I can tell you that. Actually Bill's Last bullet put me in a coma. A coma I was to lie in for five years. When I woke up ... I went on what the movie advertisements refer to as a Roaring Rampage of Revenge. I roared and I rampaged and I got bloody satisfaction. In all, I've killed 33 people to get to this point right now. I have only one more. The last one. The one I'm driving to right now. The only one left. And when I arrive at my destination...I'm gonna Kill Bill."

With this introduction, the former contract killer "The Bride" (Uma Thurman) opens KILL BILL vol.1. She was betrayed by her colleages on her wedding day, shot and left to die. But after five years in a coma she wakes with only one thing in mind: she will kill Bill (David Carradine). Her former partners in crime, Vernita (Viveca A. Fox), the one-eyed Elle (Daryl Hannah), Budd (Michael Madsen) and O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) will all feel her rage.

The team that gave us RESERVOIR DOGS and PULP FICTION returns with a overwhelming tribute to 60s and 70s westerns and martial arts films. Quentin Tarantino takes us all over the US and all the way to China to witness The Brides rampage of revenge. And everything is rated R.

Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino was born in Knoxville, Texas in 1963. He became known to film audiences world-wide after the release of RESERVOIR DOGS (1992). In 1994 he followed up with PULP FICTION, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where it won the coveted 'Palme D'Or'. The film was also nominated for several Academy Awards, and Tarantino and writing partner Roger Avary came away with the award for Best Original Screenplay.

In 1995, Tarantino directed one fourth of the Anthology FOUR ROOMS (1995) with Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez, and Allison Anders. His next film was FROM DUSK TILL DAWN (1996). In 1997 he had great success with JACKIE BROWN, starring Pam Grier. KILL BILL vol.2 will be released in 2004.
