Cameos by Cheech Marin as a priest who wields a shotgun and Jeff Fahey (J.T. in Planet Terror) who plays a businessman who hires Machete to do a job, only to double cross him. Machete gets it on with his wife AND daughter in return as part of his payback!! Its a cool trailer with some great one-liners!
