Film: Stunts
Stunts is a 1977 B-Movie, and the first film to be produced by then-independent distributor New Line Cinema. It boasts an all-star cast of stuntmen.

Following the mysterious death of stuntman Greg Wilson during a helicopter stunt for a film production, his brother Glen volunteers to fill in for him, hoping to find out the truth behind the accident. Along the way, he picks up a journalist, B.J. Parswell, who's doing a story on stuntmen. As production continues, more stuntmen get offed, and it becomes obvious that Greg's death may not have been an accident after all...

This film contains examples of:

  • Due to the Dead: After Greg dies, his friends throw his bike off a cliff into the waiting waters.
    Paul Salerno: When a stuntman dies, he gets a stuntman's funeral.
  • Gory Discretion Shot: The stuntmen's deaths.
  • My Sibling Will Live Through Me: Of course, Glen has his own ulterior, if well-intentioned, motives for doing the stunt his brother dreamed of doing.
