8Death Proof: “Get ready to fly, b****!”
Quentin Tarantino has openly admitted that Death Proof is his worst movie, and he’s using it as the benchmark to make sure he never makes a movie that bad again. The slasher premise of the film actually had a lot of promise. Stuntman Mike is a menacing guy
and he has an inventive way of killing his victims: crashing into them with his “death-proof” stunt car.
He even has quippy Freddy Krueger-esque lines like, “Get ready to fly, b****!” It’s just unfortunate that Tarantino eschewed the traditional slasher structure in favor of long, extended, drawn-out dialogue scenes that go nowhere, inspired by Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, a controversial cult Russ Meyers movie.
