"Machete" was the most memorable, really fun and super-violent trailer that ran between the "Grindhouse" double feature. Now - because you demanded it - filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has turned those 90 seconds of quick cuts and best-of moments into a full-length movie. And by "you," I mean everyone who goes to Comic-Con every year; the same niche crowd of 20,000 who heralded the cinematic success of "Snakes on a Plane" and "Scott Pilgrim. " People who make our movies (and that includes the movie stars, like Robert De Niro, who sign on for cameos)

The owner of a South Camden liquor store was slashed with a machete and beaten with a sledgehammer during an attack yesterday in which robbers took two cases of beer. Camden police said Harry T. Hancock, 62, owner of Haddon Liquors at 1182 Haddon Ave., was in critical condition last night at Cooper Hospital- University Medical Center, where he underwent facial surgery. Police said Hancock lost a lot of blood but was alert enough to tell them that two young men robbed him shortly after 10 a.m. They said Hancock apparently resisted and was attacked before the robbers grabbed the two cases of beer and ran. No arrests have been made.

A 40-year-old woman remained in critical condition with a gunshot wound yesterday after threatening a female police officer with a machete on a narrow stairway, authorities said. The woman, whose identity was not released, was shot in the side Tuesday evening after police went to a house on the 600 block of Russell Street in the Frankinville section in response to a call that children had been left home alone. Three children, ages 5, 8 and 10, were found alone in "deplorable conditions" in the house and child-welfare officials, who arrived later, decided to remove them from the home, said Chief Inspector William Colarulo, of Internal Affairs.

James Simpkins used to wake up every morning, raise the flag outside his Tinicum home, and then walk to the hotel where he worked as a bellhop. But since the morning of June 23, 1993, Simpkins, 61, has been afraid to walk the streets of Tinicum because a nearby resident randomly attacked him with a machete. Yesterday, Delaware County Judge A. Leo Sereni took steps to make sure that Alan Joseph Haglock, 24, would no longer roam the streets of Tinicum. Sereni sentenced Haglock to 12 to 29 years in prison for attempted murder, simple assault and resisting arrest.

If you think there's nothing new to add to the immigration debate, you have not seen "Machete. " I don't think Robert Rodriguez's movie advances the dialogue very much (in fact, it probably moves it back a peg or two), but it does have something to add - the naked bodies of Jessica Alba and Lindsay Lohan, and the virtually nude figure of Michelle Rodriguez. And it does raise some interesting questions. None connected with immigration, but interesting nonetheless. Where does a naked woman keep her cell phone?

DANNY TREJO may be best known for playing the lead in the "Machete" film franchise, but he has had a long and memorable career. "I've worked with Steven Seagal, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Amber Heard and - oh, yeah - Amber Heard," Trejo said, with a laugh. Trejo has made a career out of playing hyper-masculine, tough characters at a time when many complain that Hollywood's leading men have gotten soft. "I like the way Robert Rodriguez works," Trejo says of the director he has worked with on numerous films.

SURELY, THIS situation could've been handled better. One leader of an Overbrook mosque is behind bars - and another might join him soon - after Philadelphia police said the two men tried to lop off the hand of a worshipper who had supposedly stolen money from the mosque. The macabre tale started to unfold as the sun began to fill the morning sky on Monday. A prayer service had just ended at the Al-Masjid Ur-Razzaq Ul-Karim mosque, which is housed in a decrepit, Hitchcockian building on 63rd Street near Lebanon Avenue.

AMID OUR LOUSY national job market, few are doing more to help us reach full employment than filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. He specializes in finding jobs for the chronically unemployed - Lindsay Lohan in "Machete," and now Mel Gibson in "Machete Kills. " Mad Mel joins the "Machete" stunt casting parade that in this new sequel has him marching alongside Lady Gaga and Charlie Sheen. The original, you'll recall, paired Robert De Niro with Steven Seagal, thus providing future generations with really hard "Jeopardy" questions.

When and where did Macbeth take place? You wouldn't know from seeing Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company's design-confused albeit chillingly staged production of Shakespeare's tragedy. Sure, many directors have transported Shakespeare's works from their original settings. But at CTCC, the chessboard floor (it's about kings and queens, I get it), surrounded by what looks like sheaves of wheat combine with a collection of mixed-period military attire to distract from the action on stage.

WILKES-BARRE - Juan Borbon, 21, the man accused of nearly chopping off a teenager's hand with a machete last year outside a high school here, claims he has an alibi. The alibi defense, recently introduced by Borbon's defense team, has prompted the delay of Borbon's aggravated-assault trial, which had been expected to start Monday in Luzerne County Court. Borbon's trial is now tentatively set to start on April 1. Borbon's attorney, William Watt III, recently filed notice in court that Borbon will claim he was at an acquaintance's home when the racially charged melee erupted between students outside GAR High School in February 2012.
