was born in Detroit on an automobile assembly line. But she
is no ordinary car. Deep within her chassis lurks the devil
incarnate. She is Christine - a red and white 1958 Plymouth
Fury. She seduces 17-year-old Arnie Cunningham who becomes
consumed with passion for her sleek, rounded, chrome-laden
body. She demands his absolute and unquestionable devotion
and when outsiders seek to interfere, they become victims
of Christine's uncontrollable wrath...
17 year olds would kill to own a car like Christine after
passing their driving tests, and Arnie Cunningham is no exception.
However, he takes this figure of speech to literal proportions
as he sets about killing people, who have wronged him, from
behind the wheel of his new car. Or is he? We are never really
sure, until the end, whether Cunningham is ever behind the
wheel when Christine goes off on her killing spree.
movie builds the suspense well and the viewer is kept guessing
whether Cunningham is crazy, the car is alive or a little
bit of both. Harry Dean Stanton also makes a brief appearance
as the detective who is hot on the heels of Cunningham - although
sadly he is very under used.
John Carpenter brings Stephen King's best selling novel vividly
to life in this thriller that, while slightly dated, is still
as gripping as it was on its original release. If you don't
already possess this then you should pick up a copy. It could
be the best £6 you spend this month.
