One of a set of lobby cards for the Yugoslav release of the Brian Trenchard-Smith film Dead End Drive-In (1986). The film was released in 1990 in Yugoslavia under the title Smrt u auto-kinu, which translates as 'Death at the car cinema'.

The films playing at the drive-in within the story are The Man From Hong Kong (1975) and Turkey Shoot (1982), also directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith. Over 400 car wrecks were bought for the film at a cost of $100.00 each to fill the now demolished drive-in.

Lobby cards are similar to posters but smaller and typically issued as a set, each featuring a different scene from the film. The film still on this card is intriguing.

Looking like a post-apocalyptic nightmare it's a good representation of the film's central plot. It's an exciting image that provokes you into wanting to see more.
