Death Proof is an action/horror film written and directed by Tarantino. The film stars Kurt Russell as Mike — a dangerous, psychopathic stuntman who stalks the many female leads, including stars Rosario Dawson, Sydney Poitier and Rose McGowan. Mike then uses his stunt vehicles, which are “death proof” — but only to the driver — to carry out his murderous fantasies.
