User Reviews

A well made suspense/thriller from the land down under.
9 April 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Dead End is a well-crafted suspense/thriller from Australia. This is a lower budget film and doesn't have all of the Hollywood special effects that so often lure viewers to the box office, but it does have a well-written script and solid acting. I particularly liked the Australian actress Victoria Hill who plays Lori Peterson and does a very nice job acting - both clothed and unclothed. This film has the most important element in a suspense/thriller - an unpredictable ending. If you like smartly written "Hitchcockian" mysteries, you will like Dead End.
