Director: John Carpenter
Main Stars: Keith Gordon, Alexandra Paul
Storyline: A young man buys a car that has an evil mind of its own.
Review (Spoils): Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon) buys a 1958 Plymouth Fury, bright red and it was love at first site. He names the car Christine and spends all his nerdy time restoring it back to beauty. From all the time that Arnie is spending with the car is starts to act out of character and becomes cocky and extremely arrogant. He becomes obsessed with the car, falls out with his parents, pisses off the friends he does have, even his girlfriend Leigh (Alexandra Paul) wants nothing to do with him. He thinks he is becoming a man but unfortunate it is the car that possesses him.
What the film comes down to is Christine found a sucker of an owner and she is a jealous bitch and wants the owner all to herself. Some of the moments in the film are unique such as the car repairing itself, the music used when she is on racing killing rampage. John Carpenter did a great job with this film and it is a classic also this is one of the best from Keith Gordon. Let’s be honest when you think of a killer car you think Christine.
Rating: This is a Stephen King classic, the killer car that wants nothing more than to be the most important thing in the world. Think 1958 Plymouth Fury, think nasty bitch, think of drinking beer, think Christine!
