Inspired by such great works as Waiting for Godot and Carnival of Souls, Dead End became an instant cult horror classic and was received favorably by many societies and clubs, such as Fantasia Montreal and the Brussels International Film Festival. The viewer has to ponder many significant questions while enjoying the film like "What is holding this family together?" and "Why are they traveling so far for Christmas Dinner?" Thus, the film has philosophical underpinnings beneath the gory exterior.<br /> <br />Here compiled and collected for the first time is a trivia guide to test your recall from this horror classic. So fasten your seatbelts and get ready for the trivia ride of your life! The question is as follows: "How long will it take you to reach your destination?" and "Will you make it there in one piece?"<br /><br />Netflix (U.S.) has, in the past, featured Dead End for streaming, although it is not presently available there and probably has to be rented at a video store or checked out from a public library.<br /><br />[Sample question:]<br /><br />Brad, Marion's boyfriend, suggests that they all relax by performing what?<br /><br />Counting backwards from 10 to zero<br /><br />A Shakespearean drama<br /><br />A breathing technique<br /><br />Self-massage<br /><br /><br />

This is a collection of forgotten mysteries of the past -- stories of real people and events and we try to tell you what really happened. While some of these cases may be ones you've heard of, others will be new to you. A novelist walks away from her home and a troubled marriage on a cold wintry night--and is never seen again. Two thieves make their way into a Boston art museum and carry out the largest art heist in history. The paintings, which were valued at over $500 million, have never been recovered. The most famous defense lawyer of his time is on trial for bribery and chooses to defend himself. What is the verdict? A flamboyant adventurer goes searching for the City of Gold with his son and both vanish into the dark and deadly Amazon--what happened to them? How close are we to discovering extraterrestrial life--or are we alone in the universe?

<p><b>“Extensive and brilliant investigations…a tour de force of detective work…Mr. O’Toole is a beacon of accuracy who should inspire all readers who prefer their facts real rather than phony.” —<i>Wall Street Journal</i></b></p><p>Everywhere you look, you’ll find viral quotable wisdom attributed to icons ranging from Abraham Lincoln to Mark Twain, from Cicero to Woody Allen. But more often than not, these attributions are false.</p><p>Garson O’Toole—the Internet’s foremost investigator into the dubious origins of our most repeated quotations, aphorisms, and everyday sayings—collects his efforts into a first-ever encyclopedia of corrective popular history. Containing an enormous amount of original research, this delightful compendium presents information previously unavailable to readers, writers, and scholars. It also serves as the first careful examination of what causes misquotations and how they spread across the globe.</p><p>Using the massive expansion in online databases as well as old-fashioned gumshoe archival digging, O’Toole provides a fascinating study of our modern abilities to find and correct misinformation. As Carl Sagan did <i>not</i> say, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”</p>
