Product Description

For the last twenty years Frank Harrington (Ray Wise - Twin Peaks, Jeepers Creepers 2) has made the reluctant road trip with his family to celebrate Christmas at his mother in law’s! This year all the usual in-car fighting and bickering ensues, but when the family finally fall asleep, Frank decides to take the short cut through the forest... it's the biggest mistake of his life! From out of the woods appears a mysterious woman, all in white, clutching a baby and leaving a trail of death in her wake. A terrifying black car - with no visible driver - carries her victims into the dark of night. Every road sign points to a destination they never reach as they are stuck on a never-ending road. Before too long panic and insanity set in and deeply buried secrets soon surface as Christmas turns into a living nightmare!

This is a very scary movie, and I enjoyed it so much I gave it five stars. I was however tempted to give it 4 due to the ending. They could have just cut the film ten minutes earlier without having to try and give it a "twist" at the end which was frankly un-needed. Anyway, that aside, the film is basically a family's night-time journey through a forest. Caught on a road that appears to have no end, they suffer a series of terrifying encounters each time they have to stop the car. There is also some really dark humour throughout the film, particularly as the family members begin to get driven crazy coping with what is happening to them. There isn't any complexity of plot, just a creepy sense of being caught outside of time - in the Twilight Zone, for example - it is really a particularly scary Bradbury-esque movie, and I thoroughtly enjoyed it.

As a die-hard fan of David Lynch’s surreal little TV spectacular, Twin Peaks, I do tend to watch pretty much anything with various actors associated with the series. Ray Wise was brilliant in the show and I always enjoy his performances. Here is no different. It’s basically the Ray Wise Show (but in a car).

Did I mention the entire of this cheap little horror movie is set in a car? I feel I better because it may put people off. Plus it’s not exactly high budget. Like I said – one setting: the car. And the darkened woodland road it’s travelling along.

Dead End is about a family of five (Ray Wise – the dad, his wife, their two children and their daughter’s soon-to-be fiancé). They’re all (un)happily travelling to a relative’s at Christmas – like they do every year – when they decide to take the ‘scenic’ route. This involves ditching the interstate for a cross-country road. Not a good idea.

Basically, it’s a horror film, so, without wishing to give anything away, bad things start to happen. I won’t go into detail as it’s such a fun little film that anything else may spoil things. Like I mentioned, the budget isn’t too high, so don’t expect hordes of Orcs rampaging through the woods or general destruction on a planetary level. Just expect some creepiness, mixed with witty dialogue.

Yes, the dialogue. Whether you love or hate the film, I defy almost anything to dislike the banter between the family. Right from the start they bicker and berate each other and come across like they really have been making this depressingly traditional journey for countless years.

But, no matter how good the cast are in general (Lin Shaye, I’m referring to you), it’s Ray Wise’s performance that carries the film through and through.

For the past 20 years, Frank Harrington has driven his family to celebrate Christmas with his mother-in-law.

This year, he takes a shortcut, and its a huge mistake.

A mysterious woman in white wanders through the forest, leaving death in her wake. A terrifying black car carries the victims into the heart of the night.

Every road sign points to a destination they never reach. The survivors start to panic, and deep secrets burst to the surface.

Christmas turns into a living hell.

Cruelly ignored on its initial release, Dead End is a wonderful little ghost story to watch on Christmas Eve, with all the lights down low.

Its one of those movies that will never be the same after your first viewing, the film and is narrative is a huge red herring for the story, and the final reveal will leave a chill down your spine.

But its laugh out loud funny in places, and as the tension rise, so does the family breaking down become more evident.

The cast are great and put in tense performances. It should be an alternate Christmas favourite along with the likes of Die Hard and Lethal Weapon, but unfortunately it's been overlooked.

See it, its a wonderful little movie.

This film is one to watch several times as what seems like a cosy, humourous road movie turns into a nightmare. All I can say is look out for the Lady in White when your out driving on quiet country roads at night!! Atmospheric, constantly moving and a labyrinthine ending that leaves you wondering - did it or didn't it!! (I'll not say more and spoil the plot).
An intelligent and thought-provoking film - I've been talking about this film for days after watching it - if you like horror/mystery films buy it - it's a must have for your DVD collection.

I'm not going to go into great detail about the plot of this movie, as it twists and turns so many times that explaining too much of it would spoil the effect of the film. Suffice to say an average family find themselves stuck on a seemingly never ending road, being stalked by what they initially think is another driver.
What makes this film so refreshing is this:
A: The film is actually tense, suspenseful and chilling. I'm more or less desensitized to gore and violence (there is some in this movie and it is unpleasant so the squeamish might want to take a raincheck) but nobody can resist a movie if it genuinely gets under your skin. For me, this was a movie that at times I wanted to turn off or pause, it's that suffocatingly tense. If you swing the other way and violence scares you, not tension, this movie would still probably work, as some unnervingly nasty things go on as the movie progresses.
B: It makes perfect sense. Sounds obvious, but a lot of horror movies, especially high profile ones like Hide and Seek, just don't add up when you think about them. It's all well and good writing a plot that twists all over the shop, but if it doesn't tie back up at the end, people will come out feeling cheated. This movie stops that from happening, with a tight, clever story arc and some killer twists.
To sum up, this is a movie that without a large budget, or with the exception of the fabulous Ray Wise, an A list cast, ramps the chill factor up to eleven and twists so much you won't know whether you're coming or going, yet reins it all back in for an ending that makes perfect sense and gives you a proper denouement to the tale instead of a botched Scooby Doo ending. They don't make 'em like this as much as they should.
