John Carpenter brings Stephen King’s best-selling novel to life in this chilling thriller. She was born in Detroit ... on an automobile assembly line. But she is no ordinary automobile. Deep within her chassis lives an unholy presence. She is CHRISTINE – a red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury whose unique standard equipment includes an evil, indestructible vengeance that will destroy anyone in her way. She seduces 17-year-old Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon), who becomes consumed with passion for her sleek, rounded chrome-laden body. She demands his complete and unquestioned devotion and when outsiders seek to interfere, they become the victims of Christine’s horrifying wrath.

In my early 20's I-like many other young men-found and restored my own special "Love-Car"- a 1968 AMC Javelin, painted the same colors as Christine! My customized licence plates told the story of my obsession and love for that car for all to see! "HOLY J" :) But however, the "Holy J" was after all, just a car to party in with the gang and wreck all the time. In the end, 'Holy J' meant to me that I "resurrected" the car dozens of times after the results of drunken road trips! It never had a vengeful bolt on it's chassis, as Christine did!
Take a classic nerd. Add the rusted wreck of a 1958 Plymouth Belvedere. (That was a Beledere, not a Fury.) A gorgeous Belvedere with an attitude! What do you end up with? A lot of magic. A lot of unswerving devotion. A lot of vengeance! And a lot of guts in more ways than one! And unlike my Javelin, Christine had the ability and talent to FIX HERSELF after being trashed by hoods, and after trashing herself in her many murderous sprees in revenge of those who f(ool)ed with her!
I read the book after seeing the movie long ago. I was disappointed in the book, it got boring in many places, whereas the movie stuck to the main star, Christine! There was no need to show rotting corpses in the back seat to convey the sheer EVIL under her hood!
My favorite scene: After Arnie's girl chokes on the hamburger in Christine, he drives her home. Upon returning to the car, Christine won't start. Arnie tries to sweettalk Christine to no avail! Only when Arnie tells Christine that nothing has changed in THEIR love affair does Christine respond with a deep motor roll, and the radio plays "I wonder why I love you like I do!" And Arnie smiles the most chilling adoration smile you ever seen! Its the smile a teen has after his first sexual encounter! That smile alone speaks volumes!
I would love to see a 2007 remake of Christine! Call it Christine-Resurrection. Show the cube of crushed metal of the old Christine melted into a ceiling beam in a factory that collapses, killing dozens. Then show the twisted girder once again melted down and sent to Detroit to form the body of the new Christine: A gorgeous 2006 Chrysler 300C Touring Sedan...WITH A VENGEANCE! Just waiting for the future nerd to come along to fall in fatal love with "her!"
(PS: To see the real upcoming resurrection of a "Christine," go to [...]and feast your eyes on the entombed '57 Belvedere to be dug up this June!)
