Editorial Reviews

Fasten your seatbelts for the terrifying thrill ride that has become a cult classic - The Car! The peaceful tranquility of a small Western town is disturbed when a murderous car wreaks havoc by viciously mowing down innocent victims. New sheriff, Wade Parent (James Brolin), may be the only one who can stop this menace in its tracks until he realizes that the driver of this indestructible vehicle is far more dangerous than any man… it is driven by pure evil. With a digitally remastered picture, The Car has never been more thrilling, more chilling or more explosively entertaining!

    I love the 1977 film "The Car" for a number of reasons. One of which, I suppose, was that I first saw this "B" horror flick at the neighborhood theater as a child. Yes, it scared me then and makes me smile now.
    "The Car" is so extravangantly cheesy as to be almost surreal. To really understand the greatness of "The Car," one must compare it to John Carpenter's "Christine," another haunted car film based on one of Stephen King's weakest novels. I've seen "Christine" once and really don't care to view it again. I've seen "The Car" many times and will watch it every chance I get.
    Accurately noted by several reviewers, "The Car" is really "Jaws" on land. This souped up automobile is a sleek black Lincoln possessing a fog horn and a bumper the size of Wilford Brimley's mustache. It runs over bikers, hitchhikers and tuba players with hungry ease, tormenting the local yokel police force with demonic glee. The cast is the key here, with small town policemen James Brolin, John Marley and Ronnie Cox joining forces with dynamite expert R.G. Armstrong to corner The Car and blow it kingdom come. These actors have been around the block a few times in films far better than "The Car," but their experienced presence adds a note (albeit a small one) of respectability to the precedings.
    But before this salty crew goes after the metallic Beezlebub beast, The Car must terrorize a high school band, Brolin's hometown squeeze Kathleen Lloyd (whatever happened to her?) and several unlucky travelers in the wrong place at the wrong time. Needless-to-say, car insurance companies were left mightily frustrated after The Car paid a visit to Santa Ynaz.

    This is a great little supernatural film and a must for fans of the 70's TV movies or B movie suspense thrillers.

    Great cinematography, superb score and another EXCELLENT car designed by the George Barris, King of the Customizers and the man who brought you the General Lee, the 60's Batmobile, the Munsters car and Starsky and Hutch's Torino.

    Because the photographer makes full use of the 2:35 widescreen in all shots, this one is a must for widescreen - don't settle for the fullframe copies that are circulating or you will definately miss one of the most redeeming aspects of this film!!

    Only mistake I saw was that they really should've given a bigger part to the Native American Deputy as there was alot he could have added to the story.

    The sound of The Car when the motors running and the horn honking terror seal the deal on this well made flick. Get it on DVD now........

    The late-night classic from the 70's returns. Out on the rural highways and byways speeds Satan's evil sedan running down the unwary, no matter how righteous. This beautiful "B" horror film, wheeled in with the wave of "Devil movies," including the Exorcist, in the 70's. But the twist here is that a driver-less CAR is doing Satan's bidding! There's also some strange parallels to a certain shark movie released the same year. There's loads of shots of the CAR prowling the desert roads, sweet "point of view" shots from the evil vehicle's interior, and the glorious "HORN FROM HELL" literally scaring the be-jesuz' out of those motoring-mortals. The music is a little dated, as is the production value, but the premise is so classic, it is worth owning, especially to shake-up a horror movie marathon or a "when cars attack" themed evening.

    Classic moments include the CAR struggling unable to cross onto "hallowed ground" to get it's victims and the ultimate fate of the Satan's ride.

    Futurama satirises "The Car" and "The Howling" in an episode called "The Honking." The made-for-TV Herbie remake with Bruce Campbell has a "Car" homage with an evil VW beetle made by Nazis.

    Wow! I cannot believe I found this movie. For the past 10 years, I have not seen it and have been looking for it all over--video stores, online, searches. This was THE scariest movie for me as a child as I remember watching it on Saturday late-night TV from 11:30-1:00am. I went to bed terrified and hiding under the sheets. I was 12 or 13 when I watched this and now at 29 I'm sure I'll have flashbacks from the first time I saw it. Can't wait to buy it!
