Don't Mess With Christine!

I couldn't fix an ailing automobile if my life depended on it so the workings of cars don't fascinate me.....this movie fascinated me. The '58 Plymouth Fury, alias "Christine," is absolutely gorgeous. What a piece of machinery!

This is a horror story but there are no ghosts or monsters nor is there any gore. A car is the star of the film, a very jealous and vengeful one at that. Man... read more

I'm a large fan of John Carpenter films, and his scores, and this movie is no exception. Even though it's totally different from the book I still like how he developed certain characters and I can see why he left out all the zombies from the novel as it would have made this movie well over 2 hours. The acting and transformation by Keith Gordon as Arnie Cunningham is my favorite part of the film an... read more

To be honest, I have never been a fan of Stephen King’s work and I never really cared for his books (even though I actually read about 4 of them), or the films adapted from this books (even though I have seen about 20 of those). Still, a combination of Stephen King and John Carpenter sounded really awesome so I was really eager to check this flick. Eventually, it turned out to be one of the bett... read more

She was born in Detroit on an assembly line... but she is no ordinary automobile. She is Christine - a red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury whose standard equipment includes an evil, indestructible presence that will destroy anyone in her way.

"20.1. Netflix Nörttipoika kunnostaa vanhan louskun, voimaantuu tästä ja tulee huolestuttavan itsevarmaksi. Lousku onkin tappajalousku. Nörttipoika ja lousku tulevat riippuvaisiksi toisistaan. Tarjoaa ihan hyvän vertauskuvan vaikka mille rippuvuudelle, mutta on juoneltaan niin hupsu, ettei oikein muuten lähde. Ei ole tarpeeksi roskainen tälle höpsöyden määrälle. Carpenterin musiikit ovat elokuvan paras osa, vaikka vielä aika kaukana Carpenterin kärkipäästä. Taitaa olla itsetarko"

“Few films mine the past in such a veiled, foreboding sense as John Carpenter's "Christine", but even if his efforts do not quite coalesce in terms of pacing and plot, the film's characterisations, zippy dialogue, slick visuals, nostalgic soundtrack (utilised to great effect during murder sequences) and vehicular stunts all thankfully aggrandise the proceedings, thus saving it from becoming a generic adaptation of a lesser Stephen King novel. It may not be as effective in totality as it is in fragments, but even Carpenter's weakest fare retains entertainment value, and this is no exception; not succeeding as a singular work exalts it as a classic in the 1980s horror canon by virtue of its daringly implausible premise. Owing to Carpenter's deft ability to imbue seemingly incredible stories w” read more
