Dead End

3

Driving his bickering family to the in-laws’ house on Christmas Eve, grumpy dad Frank Harrington (Twin Peaks’ Ray Wise) dozes off and narrowly avoids a crash. But when a woman in white suddenly appears in the road, the family starts falling to pieces in more ways than one...

One car, one road, six people and a tiny budget. So how do debut directors Jean-Baptiste Andrea and Fabrice Canepa twist their Twilight Zone premise into such a nerve-shredder? With a witty script, great performances and an atmosphere splashed with just the right amount of gore. Certainly no groundbreaker, but while it lasts, your fingernails probably won’t.
