In Austin, Texas, the girlfriends Julia, Arlene and Shanna meet in a bar to drink, smoke and make out with their boyfriends before traveling alone to Lake LBJ to spend the weekend together. They meet the former Hollywood stuntman Mike, who takes Pam out in his "death-proof" stunt car. Fourteen months later, Mike turns up in Lebanon, Tennessee and chase Abernathy, Zoë and Kim, but these girls are tough and decide to pay-back the attack. Written by

In the uncut European version, there is a scene where Stuntman Mike fondles Abernathy's feet while she is asleep in the car and Lee isn't paying attention. When she wakes up from it, he pretends he just touched them by accident as he was walking by going to his car. Later when he attacks the girls driving the challenger, this explains how Abernathy is the only person who recognizes him from earlier. See more »
The driving scene through South Austin, when the girls are en route to Guero's, contains dozens of continuity flaws. The scene was filmed along a three-mile stretch of Austin's Congress and S. Congress Avenues. Although ostensibly a continuous conversation, the backgrounds at different shooting angles change back and forth from the northbound to southbound lanes on Congress and S. Congress, and to parts of the street miles apart. See more »

In the OPENING credits during the prologue driving sequence, after "Kurt Russell in" there is a quick two-or-three frame color animation of the title "Quentin Tarentino's Thunder Bolt" which cuts immediately to a simple grainy white-on-black title screen that says "Death Proof". See more »
Where the devil does Quentin Tarantino get such ideas from???
This review will be simple.
If you are a Quentin Tarantino fan & haven't watched Death Proof yet, I suggest you do. I cannot possibly fathom how he comes up with such ideas for scripts & cinematography but I have never felt such tension & enjoyment from watching such an eerie yet GOOD and ORIGINAL movie. For the frail hearts, the movie contains some violent scenes. Loads of swearing too. The events are completely unexpected yet the sequence from one event to the other is totally right. And as for Kurt Russell....I had no idea he could act with such passion.
Truly...Tarantino is a genius in an unmatched league of his own.
