Dead End

Dead End ★★½

When the father of the family literally driving into the aptly referenced dead end loses his shit, you can't help be reminded of Ray Wise's more famous misunderstood father Leland from Twin Peaks. The similarities end there. Dead End is a road movie with unpleasantries and fatalities just around the corner - or rather just down the road. What is meant to be a typical family trip at Christmas time turns into a claustrophobic bloody nightmare, as the members are picked off one by one. More intriguing that all out scary perhaps, the film does close with a thought-provoking twist.
