Death Proof

Question: When Abby is in the store, Lee calls her. What is Abby's ringtone? It sounds familiar, but I can't place it.

Answer: The tune is called "Twisted Nerve" by Bernard Herrmann. It sounds familiar because in one of Quentin Tarantino's earlier films "Kill Bill", Daryl Hannah's character was whistling it before attempting to murder Uma Thurman's character in her sleep.

Answer: That song is actually used in a couple different scenes of Kill Bill.

Question: In the car racing scene between Stuntman Mike, Kim, Zoe, and Abby, I am confused as to why the car chase lasted so long. Couldn't Kim have simply slowed down gradually and shot Stuntman Mike? I mean, we hear her in an earlier scene talking about her gun and we see her shoot him after stopping. Why keep driving fast with your friend in danger and mess up the car that isn't yours?

Chosen answer: Because there wouldn't be a car chase if she stopped. It's all part of the fun.

Question: What happened to Lee? It never says what she was doing while the others were "out for a test drive" or if they went back for her. I heard somewhere that the guy raped her. Is this true?

Answer: Since the actor is the same actor who played the raping guy in Kill Bill, it's seen as a hint that she is, in fact, raped.

Continuity mistake: The shape and width of the scar on Stuntman Mike's face slightly varies between the scenes (from thin in the shot where he is pouring some eye drops into his eyes, to almost invisible during the scene at the parking lot in front of the shop in Lebanon, Tennessee, and wide during the final rush).

Dov: So is it Shawna and the girls at lake house this weekend?
Shanna: Shawna?
Dov: Awww fuck, I didn.
Shanna: No. Now there is one thing every girl in the whole world whose name is Shanna has in common with each other - we all hate the name Shawna. And we really hate when people call us Shawna. Remember it's Shanna banana not Shawna banawna.
