Before Christine hit the big screen there was The Car.
The Car was a movie released in 1977 featuring a sweet George Barris modified 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III.
I never saw The Car in theaters, but my brother and I must have watched it close to 100 times on late night horror theater tv shows.
As far as killer car movies go, this was much better than Christine and in some ways better than Maximum Overdrive.
For those who haven’t seen the picture, “The Car” appears one day in a remote area and starts killing people. A local Sheriff, played by James Brolin leads the charge as the locals try to fight back and stop the machine’s killing spree. Some folks have called it Jaws with a car, but I always thought this is a much better movie than Jaws.
