The movie directed by John Carpenter. I'm 24, so I can't blame myself for just now seeing this classic of a thriller film. The car definitely was a character, and to be honest, I found myself rooting for " it " when " she " went around hunting the bullies down.

The scene where Christine rebuilds herself while the romantic music was playing also was tremendous writing.

Anyway, in the spirit of halloween, this move is a must see.

Also, Alexandra Paul is pretty hot. Last part wasn't necessary, but it's true.

read the book, it blows the movie completely out of the water.

but that's almost always the case with novel to big screen translations, but especially with stephen king stories.

One of my favorites.

I just hope Hollywood doesn't remake it.

'IT' was the scariest book I've ever read.

'Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room' was the scariest movie I've ever seen.

Sometimes, what makes a book good doesn't make a good movie - and vice versa.

I agree that 'Christine' was a pretty cool movie.

That movie was not only a great horror/action movie, but also a GREAT character acted wonderfully by Keith Gordon.

I'm younger than you and saw that movie before I was even a teenager. Obama world must be small.

I agree, I love that book after seeing bits of the movie as a kid and the copy I had had 10 to 15 pictures from the movie in it.

The first thing I would go upon winning the lotto is get me a Christine 1958 Fury.
It's always been my dream car.

I tend to watch the movie about once a year, and have read the book a half dozen times.
I have come to the conclusion that the book car was a living entity as well as the old man. They found themselves and became inseparable.

I also agree the book was better, but there was huge plot points that couldn't have been made into the movie for time constraints alone.

It took me a while to piece together a sound track for the movie. The movies sound track is all the creepy music that plays to ratchet up tension.

I had to get numerous cd's from the library and it took weeks to collect all the songs. I never bothered to get the songs from the movie outside the 50's music.

That'd be cool.

The book was terribly sad...King definitely captures how it feels to be a maligned nerd and outcast in school (Carrie covers it well, also)

Not like I was a nerd or anything in high school.* :whistling:





* and you know damn well I was. Critical thinking, reasonable intelligence, and a habit of shooting my mouth off with the blunt truth garnered me no friends. That and a penchant for dressing oddly and I sealed my own fate.

Dont mean to derail your thread but wanted to throw out another must see automobile horror movie. Pretty sure this is Steven Spielbergs first movie. It is a classic I watched over and over as a kid.

Christine is a great movie. As Adjuster said, Duel is worth checking out as well.

Duel was one of the biggest let-downs of any movie i've watched. The only redeeming quality was the amount of black smoke pumped out by the diesel truck. The car about to shake itself to death at 80+ mph was also somewhat interesting.

Not all of King's work translates well to the big screen but this was an excellent movie. His talent and imagination is unrivaled. A lot of people don't know that he wrote Green Mile and Shawshank Redemption. His writing ability isn't limited to just horror.

i know a few big sk fans that didn't know he does non-horror stuff too. "stand by me" and "dream catcher" come to mind.

It's fiction, I doubt a Plymouth Valiant would even do 80 mph :tongueout:


I remember seeing that movie as a kid, it was scary and gave me nightmares!
