GRINDHOUSE, PART II: Death Proof
(Act/Thr, 2007, US, 114 min, Rated 18A, for Explicit Violence)
Director: Quentin Tarantino
White-Hot Terror At 200 MPH!
Originally released into theatres on a double bill with Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror under the GRINDHOUSE banner, Death Proof is about three friends – Arlene, Shanna, and radio disc jockey "Jungle" Julia – who spend a night in Austin, Texas for fun, unknowingly followed by a mysterious man in a souped-up 1971 Chevy Nova. The man, Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell), stalks the young women with his "death proof" car, eventually killing all three. Fourteen months later, Stuntman Mike, now in Tennessee and driving a 1969 Dodge Charger, tails another group of young women – Lee, Abernathy, Kim, and stuntwoman Zoë – a group of women working below the line in Hollywood, whose Stock 1970 Dodge Challenger proves a worthy adversary.
A modern cult classic -- the film pays homage to the slasher, exploitation and muscle car films of the 1970s.
