Dead Bolt Dead (2001)

Film details


Thriller which takes place over the course of one night, charts what happens after one gang tries to take out its rivals - and fails.

The result is two separate hostage situations, which become increasingly claustrophobic and desperate as the night wears on. The tension is leavened with dark humour and a splash of country and western music.
