''Death Proof'' is the more dialogue-oriented half of ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}''. A Creator/QuentinTarantino film in which an aging stuntman uses his souped-up stuntcar to kill women on the open road. Little does he realize that a few of his second bunch of victims are ''stunt''women... and among them is Creator/ZoeBell (playing herself), who also doubled for Creator/UmaThurman in ''Film/KillBill'' in real life. Boy, is Stuntman Mike in for a world of hurt...
