Christine (1983)

Director: John Carpenter

Starring: Keith Gordon, John Stockwell, Alexandra Paul

Runtime: 1:45

Rant: Another fucking Carpenter movie. I had my internet shut off so I'm going through the ol' collection. I'm sure like a lot of people, I thought the idea for this was fucking retarded. A killer car just doesn't seem interesting or scary. Either way, it's another one of those cases where you get two legends thrown together. From what I've read, Carpenter's 1982 classic re-make of The Thing tanked horribly at the box office and he grabbed this script as a job for hire. Whether it was a personal project or not, with Stephen King and John Carpenter, you know you're in good hands.
